Like most people, Aaron says he “dreamed” of fatherhood but hesitates to hasten the process. He simply says, “I’m very excited about this chapter whenever that comes up.”

After all, there’s no need to turn the page that quickly, especially when Aaron says he “enjoyed” his engagement to Shailene. The footballer ponders: “Obviously this is the best thing that happened to me last year. There has been a lot of good.”

Shailene is also in love with the athlete she was pleasantly surprised to have fallen in love with. While appearing on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the actress joked, “He’s just a wonderful, amazing person to start with. But I never thought I’d be engaged to someone who threw balls for a living. Like me as little girl I never thought I’d say, “Yes, when I grow up, I’ll marry someone who throws balls! Yes! “But he’s really that good at it.”
