Are Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick Still Together?
NASCAR icon Danica Patrick has long been under the spotlight about her love life after one nasty divorce, then dating another man soon after. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has more or less been in the same boat after dating one prominent actress for a few years.
When Rodgers and Patrick met, it seemed they had a lot more in common than just splits with prominent people. Eventually, they seemed serious in their relationship, but rumors have persisted about them perhaps drifting apart.
Are they still together, or will we have to endure more breakup speculation?
Danica Patrick’s troubled love life
Some of you may remember Patrick was married to a physical therapist named Paul Hospenthal. They married in 2005, but there were signs of them being on the rocks seven years later.
One of those signs was when she started dating another man before officially divorcing Hospenthal. To complicate things further, Patrick met Aaron Rodgers at the 2012 ESPY Awards, even though he wasn’t the one she started dating.
Her second relationship was with another NASCAR driver: Ricky Stenhouse, Jr.
Yes, you can almost make a romantic film out of a complicated romantic triangle like this. Yet, Patrick soon calmed things by divorcing Hospenthal in 2013. A breakup with Stenhouse occurred in late 2017.
Aaron Rodgers’ relationship with a famous actress
It seemed for a while that Rodgers was going to stay a bachelor until he met actress Olivia Munn in 2014. They were seen everywhere together, and it looked fairly serious after dating three years.
Then they broke up in 2017, just as Patrick was breaking up with Stenhouse.
According to reports, the reason Munn broke up with Rodgers is because she had concerns about him having serious feuds with his family. From Rodgers’ perspective, it was simply due to lack of privacy.
Yep, relationships are seriously complicated.
Patrick and Rodgers realize they were meant for each other
You have to wonder if Danica Patrick (or Aaron Rodgers) sensed something romantic when they met during the 2012 ESPY Awards. Like in a lot of romantic films, things get in the way before realizing you’re simpatico.
When they started dating early last year, everyone was likely skeptical two sports superstars could make it work in the public eye. Their newfound relationship had us speculating last year whether Rodgers would introduce Patrick to his family, despite the latter’s feuding.
From all appearances, this did happen. Nevertheless, things kind of coasted throughout 2018 on how they were doing as a couple. With a new year upon us, it’s easy to assume they drifted in other directions.
We’re happy to report this isn’t the case at all.
Is this finally a dream sports star relationship?
Take some time look at the backgrounds of Patrick and Rodgers, and you’ll see they do have a lot of commonalities. They’re both strongly committed to family and their respective sports.
Recently, both posted an Instagram photo showing a happily romantic trip they took to New Zealand. Plus, Patrick posted Instagram pics of the two having a remote lunch there, doing kayaking to a waterfall, plus doing bungee jumping.
Their love for the outdoors is obvious, something any type of relationship should value.
Will their relationship go beyond a year?
Now honing in on a year in their dating life, let’s hope we see Patrick and Rodgers succeed. Nobody wants to see appealing sports stars like them go through endless relationship problems.
If they can make it, we’ll maybe see proof spending time in nature together is the way to combat the insanity of showbiz and professional sports life. Hopefully we can all learn similarly, even if the paparazzi will still be waiting for “Danicaron” in the great outdoors.
