Retired professional race car driver Danica Patrick is known for many things including her career in NASCAR, her Go Daddy endorsement, and of course her relationships. One of those included the rumors and verified reports that she was dating Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in recent years.
So who is Danica Patrick dating now and is it still Aaron Rodgers?
Patrick’s marriage, previous relationship
Back in 2002, Danica Patrick suffered a hip injury from yoga nonetheless. That led to her meeting physical therapist Paul Edward Hospenthal the same year. After dating for a while, the two became married in 2005. Their marriage lasted for about eight years, ending with a 2013 divorce.
Interestingly, while that divorce or separation was in progress she started dating fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in 2012. They dated for about five years but were never married or engaged during that time.
Is Danica Patrick still dating Aaron Rodgers now?
After her relationship with Stenhouse ended, Danica moved on to begin dating a star quarterback. Enter Aaron Rodgers, a former Super Bowl winner and league MVP. Rodgers previously dated actress Olivia Munn with engagement rumors arriving. However, he and Munn broke up as of 2017.
That left Rodgers available to start a relationship with a new woman. Danica Patrick and Aaron Rodgers originally met at the 2012 ESPY Awards. They were photographed together in January of 2018. Soon after, Danica confirmed their relationship to Associated Press (per Bleacher Report).
