The soon-to-be retired NASCAR driver confirmed she's dating the star quarterback.

We officially have a new sports power couple. A star racecar driver and a star quarterback have confirmed that they're dating.

Last week, rumors surfaced that soon-to-be retired NASCAR driver Danica Patrick was dating Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The rumors are true. Patrick confirmed to the Associated Press that she and Aaron are seeing each other.

"Yes, Aaron and I are dating," Patrick told The Associated Press.

Patrick, 35, says she first met the 34-year-old quarterback at The ESPYS in 2012. Both have recently ended high-profile relationships.

Rodgers was dating actress Olivia Munn for three years prior to a split earlier in 2017. Patrick had been with fellow driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. before splitting in November.

The most-interesting aspect of Patrick's relationship with Rodgers might be this: she's a Chicago Bears fan. That fandom might have to change now, though.

"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."

Only one person in this couple plans on being an athlete for a while longer, though. Patrick is planning on shifting her career to off of the racetrack.

The popular driver wants to finish her career with races at the Daytona 500 next month and the Indy 500 in late May.
