Danica Patrick confirms she's dating Aaron Rodgers


Yes, Danica Patrick and Aaron Rodgers are a couple.

Patrick confirmed the rumors the two are dating to the Associated Press in an article posted Monday. Her confirmation comes after TMZ published photos of the two together in Arizona.

Patrick, 35, also said she and fellow driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. broke up in December after dating since 2012. Rodgers and actress Olivia Munn broke up in the summer after dating for three years.

Rodgers, 33, noted to ESPN in August that “when you are living out a relationship in the public eye, it’s definitely … it’s difficult.” Dating Patrick won’t be much more of a private affair than dating Munn.

Patrick is planning on racing in the 2018 Daytona 500 and the 2018 Indianapolis 500 before retiring from racing. She parted ways with Stewart-Haas Racing at the end of 2017 after five full-time seasons with the team. Patrick finished 28th in the points standings after finishing 24th in each of the previous two seasons.

She revealed the news of her split with Stenhouse before beginning promotions for her new fitness book “Pretty Intense,” which was released at the end of 2017.
