Two celebrities of the sports world have finally confirmed they’re an item. Racing superstar Danica Patrick and Green Bay Packer’s quarterback, Aaron Rodgers have been seen in public. They finally admitted they’re a couple.
By publicly dating a member of the Green Bay Packer’s, Patrick might have to reconsider her loyalty to the Chicago Bears. She’s originally from Beloit, Wisconsin. She’s been a committed Bears fan for years. She told Rodgers she’d root for him, but it looks like she’ll have to cheer on the entire team, which would make her an official Green Bay Packer’s fan
.“Now I am probably going to cheer for the whole team,” she told the Associated Press. “Take out the word ‘probably.’ Now I’m going to cheer for the whole team.”
Other than liking a different NFL team, Patrick and Rodgers have much in common. They both enjoyed all-American upbringings. Patrick is from Wisconsin while Rodgers was raised in California. They have a love of sports and being with their families.
Both Patrick and Rodgers have been very open about their religious beliefs. Rodgers said: “When our family had its ups and downs, I knew my parents relied on God for everything and He always got us through those rough spots.”
Patrick has also been very open about her ideas on religion. It was reported that she converted to Catholicism after seeing Mel Gibson’s film, “Passion of the Christ.”
Before falling for Rodgers, Patrick dated racecar driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. for five years. She was married to physical therapist, Paul Hospenthal for seven years. They met while he treated her for an injury.
Rodgers dated actress Olivia Munn for three years. It didn’t last because she didn’t get along well with his family. To be fair, Rodgers told ESPN that it’s tough dating as a celebrity: “When you are living out a relationship in the public eye, it’s definitely … it’s difficult.
“It has some extra constraints because you have other opinions about your relationship, how it affects your work and, you know, just some inappropriate connections.”
Here’s hoping he and Patrick can survive the may lay and chaos that comes with being in a relationship playing out in the spotlight. Good luck, lovebirds.
