Looking really tan, really content and really happy, former race car driver Danica Patrick stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Monday (July 16) to not only promote her hosting gig at the 2018 ESPY Awards on Wednesday (July 18,) but also talk up her relationship with current boyfriend Aaron Rodgers.
“Aaron is a really good driver actually,” Patrick told Kimmel when asked about the Green Bay Packers’ quarterback skills off the football field.
Patrick and Rodgers have been dating since the beginning of the year, and since then, have been canoodling all across the country together, including most recently at the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe.
So will Patrick call out her boyfriend at the ESPYS? While Kimmel says she should, Patrick seems to disagree. “You got to call out the elephant in the room?” Patrick said, listening to his advice. “Or the hot guy in the room I should say.”
In the same interview, Patrick also talked about turning into a Packers fan thanks to her relationship with Rodgers and enjoying retirement at the age of 36. Fans will recall that Patrick climbed out of the race car for the last time this past May at the Indianapolis 500.
Another incredible week at beautiful Lake Tahoe! Thanks to the @acchampionship for another amazing week and @nbcsports and @edgewoodtahoe for the fantastic course and coverage. Thanks to @eblofer for the reads, @officialajhawk for the jokes, @trayfour and @stephencurry30 for the fun on the course, and @danicapatrick for being a beautiful distraction when I started to play poorly. Thanks also to the great fans, especially Carol, and the few others who follow me so diligently every year all 3 rounds, you know who you are, and you are great people! 👍🏻❤️ Until next year… #americancenturychampionship #laketahoe #edgewoodtahoe #paddlebords #sunset #🔥#
