Shailene Woodley Confirms Romance with Rugby Player


Shailene Woodley has finally confirmed she is dating rugby player Ben Volavola.

The Big Little Lies actress was first linked to the Fijian sportsman after she was spotted on the sidelines of his games in New Zealand back in September (17). The pair is thought to have met while she was in the country filming scenes for her new movie Adrift.

While Shailene, 26, has remained tight-lipped about her romance in recent months, the duo made their official debut as a couple at Valentino’s spring/summer 2018 couture show in Paris on Wednesday night (23Jan18), with the star taking to her Instagram Stories page to share some photos of the presentation as well as a snap of her posing with Ben, 27, which she captioned, “This date tho (though).”

She also posted a snap of her kissing her beau and a photo of him asleep on the train journey home.

Ben, who plays for rugby team Union Bordeaux Begles, previously hinted that he and Shailene were still going strong when he shared an image of her with the hashtag #blessed in late December.
