Danica Patrick’s Parents’ Marital Life

It is often said that parents’ quality is transferred to their children. Danica’s mother, Beverly Ann Patrick, was a mechanic for a friend’s snowmobile. While her father, Terry Joseph “T.J” Patrick Jr, raced midget cars and motocross. They met on a blind date at a snowmobile event in the 1970s.

Patrick was born on March 25, 1982, in her hometown of Beloit, Wisconsin, United States. She has a younger sister, Brooke Patrick, a pediatric physical therapist. Beverly and T.J. have been great inspirations for Dan’s racing career.

Danica’s Boyfriend is NFL star Aaron Rodgers.

In January 2018, Patrick confirmed her romance with the Green Bay Packers’ quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. The two confessed their love by kissing publicly at Daytona 500 series in February 2018. The series was the last race of her career.

Not only Patrick but Rodgers also looks much happier than ever. They are yet to be married, but in an interview with Jenny McCarthy, Danica revealed they might get hitched soon. It’s just a matter of time.

There was once speculation on social media about Danica being pregnant. She shared a picture on her Instagram with sister Brooke on May 5, 2019. She wrote: “My sister Brooke and I sat down for a chat, and it was really good! We covered a lot of topics, especially pertaining to kids, and – I got some good advice!”

Patrick specified that she was not expecting kids, but fans started guessing her kid might be on the way. The couple hasn’t revealed their marriage plans, although they would make a great match. Also, Patrick and Rodgers have been very supportive of each other.

Patrick and Rodgers’s First Encounter

The lovebird first met one another in 2012 at the ESPY Award. In an interview, Patrick revealed that they were distant friends and often saw each other at different places. After realizing similar traits, they began having an affair.

Danica and Aaron made their first red carpet appearance on July 18, 2018, at the ESPYS. If you don’t know, Patrick became the first woman to host the 2018 ESPYS awards. Rodgers praised his girlfriend through an Instagram post by writing, “So proud of this beautiful, talented, funny, ESPY Host!!”

Danica Was A Married Woman

Before dating the NFL quarterback, Patrick was a married woman. She married a physical therapist and a golf player, Paul Edward Hospenthal, in 2005. They first met in 2002 at Paul’s office when she was recovering from a hip injury.

They exchanged their engagement ring in 2004, but after eight years of marital relationship, they divorced in 2013

During her relationship with Paul, she was dating fellow racing driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. from 2012. So, this might be the reason why Paul and Danica split their relationship. But Stenhouse and Patrick’s relationship was also ephemeral. After five years of intimate romance, they parted in 2017
