Danica Patrick and her new boyfriend shared a special moment at the Daytona 500 on Sunday. That boyfriend, of course, is a very famous athlete.
The NASCAR driver, who's retiring soon, has been dating Aaron Rodgers for a couple of months. Patrick confirmed that she was seeing the Green Bay Packers star in early January.
“Yes, Aaron and I are dating,” Patrick told The Associated Press in January.
Patrick's final Daytona 500 didn't go very well. She crashed out in Stage 2.
Rodgers was by her side, though. The couple even shared a pre-race good-luck kiss.
There's one big challenge with their relationship, though. Patrick is a Chicago fan...
“I told him a long time ago I’d always root for him as a player,” she said.
“Now I am probably going to cheer for the whole team,” she added. “Take out the word ‘probably.’ Now I’m going to cheer for the whole team.”
That's a good girlfriend.
Patrick will race one more time. She'll go at the Indy 500 in late May.
