Rumors started swirling shortly after the new year that the two were an item after they were spotted out enjoying a date shortly after Christmas.
Danica put those rumors to rest on Monday, when she told The Associated Press “Yes, Aaron and I are dating.” Awe!
Aaron and Danica look to be rebounding with one another, as both of them ended long-term relationships with different people last year.
Aaron and actress girlfriend Olivia Munn ended their relationship in November of 2017 after three years with one another. He hinted in an interview with ESPN that being in the public eye may have hurt their relationship overall.
Danica, on the other hand, ended a five year relationship with fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. around the same time Aaron and Olivia broke up.
Danica and Aaron originally met five years ago at the 2012 ESPY Awards, where she confessed her allegiance to his rival team, The Chicago Bears (he’s QB for The Green Bay Packers). “I told him a long time ago I’d always root for him as a player,” she said. “Now I am probably going to cheer for the whole team. Take out the word ‘probably.’ Now I’m going to cheer for the whole team.”
