Danica Patrick Dating NFL QB Aaron Rodgers



Former NASCAR Cup Series driver, Danica Patrick, ended rumors Monday when announcing her new relationship status.  Patrick confirmed to the Associated Press, that she and Green Bay Packers Quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, are now in a relationship.

Patrick most recently drove the #10 Ford Fusion for Stewart Haas Racing in NASCAR’s top series.  During the 2017 season, it was confirmed that she would no longer be the driver of that car in 2018.  In the weeks following, she announced her retirement from full-time competition.  In late November, Patrick also confirmed that her and longtime boyfriend, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., had split up.

Rodgers is currently the starting quarterback of the Green Bay Packers.  The six-time Pro Bowl quarterback also recently went through a recent breakup.  After three years of dating actress Olivia Munn, the two split in late 2017.

Danica first met Aaron Rodgers in 2012, at the ESPY Awards.  She’s made it known that she is a devoted Chicago Bears fan, but now may be changing that.

“I told him a long time ago I’d always root for him as a player. Now I am probably going to cheer for the whole team,” she told the AP. “Take out the word ‘probably.’ Now I’m going to cheer for the whole team.”

Patrick will close the book on her racing career following the Indy 500 in May.  She will also be running NASCAR’s DAYTONA 500 in February, though she hasn’t announced the team(s) she will run those races with.

The Roscoe, Illinois native just released a new health and fitness book called, Pretty Intense.  She will also continue to work on her clothing line, Warrior, and her wine, Somnium.

Though one door has shut with Danica’s racing career, she still has many doors open, including her new relationship.
