Aaron Rodgers scores major "Awwww" points with us for these comments.
The 30-year-old NFL star has finally opened up about his new relationship with Olivia Munn, saying he's "real happy."
Both the notably private Green Bay Packers quarterback and the 33-year-old star, who plays sassy financial news anchor Sloan Sabbith on The Newsroom, certainly looked that way while they were photographed packing on the PDA on an outdoor set of the HBO series on June 6.

The two reportedly met at the Academy of Country Music Awards in April (see photo, above). A source confirmed the E! News in May that the two were dating.
ESPN Wisconsin radio asked Rodgers in an interview posted online on Friday, June 13, if he was bothered by the PDA photos and the subsequent attention and scrutiny.
"No," he replied. "For one, I'm real happy in my relationship. And I understand what comes with it. And two, the last couple years I've learned a lot about perspective and what's important. And, that you cannot, when you've had success individually and collectively as a team and you are highlighted for the things you've done on the field and off the field, you cannot hide from the spotlight. You have to learn to embrace it."
A source told E! News that Munn and Rodgers were spotted in Green Bay a few weeks ago, going to the movies and getting lunch.
Munn has not talked about their relationship. However, she was asked to define "love" in a video interview with Vogue that was posted on Wednesday.
"What is love? Ha, that's a huge, loaded question that I do not know the answer to," she said. "So if you find out, please DM me and let me know."
However, she was also asked what she is most excited about in her life right now.
"Everything," she said, sighing.
