Aaron Rodgers has had a strained relationship with several members of his immediate family for quite some time, including his parents. Olivia Munn saw that first-hand when she was dating the star quarterback, and she is pleased to hear that it may no longer be the case.
Earlier in the week, Rodgers subtly revealed that he was spending time with his parents for his 35th birthday when he was asked how he found out about former Packers coach Mike McCarthy being fired.
“I found out I’m sure the same way most of you found out,” he said. “I was at home with my folks in town for my birthday.”
That actually turned out to be pretty significant news for Rodgers’ personal life. After he and Munn broke up, the actress confirmed that Rodgers’ relationship with his parents began to sour back in 2014. TMZ caught up with Munn this week and informed her about Rodgers saying his parents were in town to celebrate his birthday, and she said it was great news.
“If that’s true, it’s amazing,” Munn said. “It’s long overdue.”
Ed Rodgers, Aaron’s father, confirmed in an interview nearly two years ago that the two-time NFL MVP does not speak with members of his family, so something must have changed. Aaron’s brother Jordan also aired out some more Rodgers family drama on social media recently, which is even more reason why people were surprised to hear that Rodgers was spending time with his parents.
Rodgers hasn’t really said much about his personal life and has criticized his brother for making it public, so it’s unlikely he will comment on the situation.
