You could say that the relationship between Danica Patrick and NFL star Aaron Rodgers has become a hot topic.
Back in January, rumors swirled that they were an item after TMZ shared photos of the two stars dining together in Scottsdale, Arizona. And, when Danica confirmed they were indeed in a relationship, fans all over commented on whether or not they supported the new couple’s romance.
Now it looks like Danica’s racing peers are coming forward with their own reactions to the female athlete’s new relationship status.
A video posted by TMZ Sports shows Danica’s former Stewart-Haas Racing teammate Kevin Harvick waiting to be seated at the Super Bowl LII. While in line, he takes a minute to share his own thoughts on Danica and Aaron’s partnership. When asked if dating a superstar like Aaron would help the NASCAR and Indy Car driver focus better on the track Kevin says, “Well, she’s only going to run a couple of races, so that’s it. But, it wouldn’t make her drive any better.”
Aside from racing, Kevin said that he thought Danica’s relationship with the Green Bay Packers quarterback might help her out outside of the track.
“It might make her more popular,” he noted.
In Danica’s case, popularity could come in handy, as she is set to retire after her final NASCAR race at this year’s Daytona 500 on Feb. 18. And, with Aaron in her corner, the sky’s the limit!
But, of course, we know Danica could succeed at just about anything with or without her significant other.
Fans may recall that Danica and Aaron were each involved in other high profile relationships before finding each other. In December 2017, Danica ended her five-year romance with fellow driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Meanwhile, in April of 2017, Aaron parted ways with his girlfriend of three years, actress Olivia Munn. Aaron was also briefly linked to soccer player Marie Margolius before finding love with Danica.
We wish Danica and Aaron a ton of happiness. And, who knows, maybe they will give us a glimpse into their love life when Valentine’s Day arrives!
