NASCAR driver Danica Patrick has confirmed the rumors that have been swirling around her the last few weeks. She is dating Green Bay Packer Aaron Rodgers.
Patrick made the announcement during an interview with the Associated Press, saying “Yes, Aaron and I are dating,” the 35-year old then added that the couple first met at the 2012 ESPY Awards and had remained friends.
“I told him a long time ago I’d always root for him as a player,” Patrick said.
The news of Danica and Aaron’s relationship comes less than two months after the driver broke up with fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr., her boyfriend of five years. Rogers also split with longtime girlfriend, actress Olivia Munn, late last year.
Patrick had previously announced in November that she was putting an end to her career as a competitive NASCAR driver and is shifting her focus to promoting her personal brand. She would like to close her racing career by competing at next month’s Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500, a farewell she’s dubbed “The Danica Double.”
Congratulations to Danica and Aaron!
