'The Bachelorette' winner gets asked if Aaron Rodgers will attend his wedding

Thanks to Aaron Rodgers, thousands of NFL fans unexpectedly found themselves watching The Bachelorette this season. I mean, I watch it every season, but I actually had an valid excuse this time around because of the drama surrounding the Packers quarterback.

Although Rodgers wasn't technically on the show, he somehow became the star after one of the contestants, his brother Jordan, revealed that Aaron is currently estranged from the rest of the family.

"Me and Aaron really don't have that much of a relationship. It's just kind of the way he's chosen to do life," Jordan said during an episode in July.

National television is an interesting way for your family drama to go public.

If Jordan had been eliminated from the show at any point this season, talk of the Rodgers' family drama probably would've died down, but that didn't happen. Instead, Jordan outlasted every other contestant and ended up winning the heart of the bachelorette, JoJo Fletcher.

The show officially came to an end on Monday when JoJo chose Jordan as the man she wants to spend the rest of her life with.

After JoJo's choice was made public during Monday's finale, ABC aired a live aftershow, and you guessed it, one of the hottest topics was Jordan's relationship with Aaron.

Host Chris Harrison wanted to know if things have improved between Jordan and Aaron (this season of The Bachelorette was taped several months ago).

To Harrison's chagrin, Jordan didn't exactly answer the question.

"Anything with my family, JoJo has been a part of," Jordan said, via Entertainment Tonight. "Any conversations we have about that, moving forward, are with us and about us, and we're excited about starting that journey with our families."

Although Jordan didn't offer any new details, JoJo did give a small update.

"I mean it's the same situation that it's been, but it's not the focus for us right now," JoJo said. "It's about us."

Now that Jordan and JoJo are engaged, there's one big question that a lot of people have been wondering: Will Aaron be invited to the wedding?

Jordan was asked that exact question during a conference call on Tuesday.

"Absolutely," Jordan said, via US Weekly. "There's no scenario in which I wouldn't want my entire family at a wedding. That's something all of our family wants and hopes for at some point."

Although Aaron didn't seem too thrilled that Jordan spilled the family's drama on national television, the younger brother said he'd do it again if it meant ending up with JoJo.

"I went into this knowing that it was a TV show, and that I only had a small opportunity on camera to tell JoJo everything that I needed to in order to get to a place where we can be engaged, and family stuff is part of that," Jordan said.

JoJo and Jordan are hoping to get married in 2017, and as Jordan mentioned, Aaron is obviously going to get an invite, so the big question is: Will he actually go?
