It’s maybe not in the immediate future but definitely something that I really look forward to,” Rodgers explained in the interview. “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.”

Rodgers has “dreamt about” starting a family for a while. Still, he wants the transition into fatherhood to be very natural. Right now, he is enjoying his engagement, which he calls “best thing that’s happened” in the past year.
