NASCAR star Danica Patrick confirmed she is dating American football quarterback Aaron Rodgers, in a statement to the Associated Press, on Monday.
Patrick told the Associated Press on Monday, January 15, that she and football player Aaron Rodgers are in a romantic relationship. In her own words: “”Yes, Aaron and I are dating.”
It must have been tough for Danica, who is a Chicago Bears fan, to allow herself to fall in love with the competition – one of the Green Bay Parkers.
Their romance is still quite fresh, as Rodgers was still dating actress Olivia Munn, 37, last year. The two broke-up in April of last year. Four months later, the Green Bay Packers player opened-up about the break-up in an interview for ESPN, explaining that the reason behind it was their busy schedules and their fame. “When you are living out a relationship in the public eye, it’s definitely … it’s difficult”, he told the mag. Some insiders mentioned, though, that his family did not see Munn as a good pick for Aaron, as she was “too controlling”.
In December, Danica Patrick, 35, and NASCAR fellow Ricky Stenhouse Jr., 30 called it quits. They had been together since 2013.
She was previously married to Paul Edward Hospenthal, from 2005 to 2013.
In November, on the documentary bearing her name, Patrick revealed that she had her eggs frozen for the time when she will decide to become a mother. “I have always had people say, ‘You’ll make a great mom someday”, she said in the documentary, adding that she wanted to get married before welcoming a child. “I was like, ‘Look, I’m gonna take control of my life here, and I don’t know where it’s going, and I’m not married, and I don’t know what the plan is, and I don’t know how long I’m gonna race, but I can only have 33-year-old eggs today”.
It’s still very early to try and guess whether Rodgers will be the lucky dad in the future, but hey…fingers crossed!
