They are expecting their first child together, and Rodgers is understandably over the moon. He spoke about how he is looking forward to the challenge of raising a child at this point in his life.

“The next great challenge will be being a father. I’m in that age group where a lot of my close friends from high school and college are fathers now and have families of their own.

“It’s maybe not in the immediate future but definitely something that I really look forward to. I’ve done a pretty good job at taking care of myself for the last 37 years and look forward to taking care of another life at some point too.

“I just think it’s going to be so fun.”
