Danica Patrick on Monday confirmed the rumors that had been swirling for weeks — she is dating Aaron Rodgers.

The famed auto racer told The Associated Press, “Yes, Aaron and I are dating.” The two met at the 2012 ESPYs, Patrick told The AP. She is an avid Bears fan but said, “Now I’m going to cheer for the Packers.”

Both athletes are coming off a very bumpy 2017.

Patrick lost her ride with Stewart-Haas Racing and couldn’t find another sponsor or owner to give her a deal. She has said she plans to race in both the Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500 this year.

As for the Green Bay quarterback, he suffered a broken collarbone on Oct. 15 and missed the next two months. He returned to the Packers for their Week 15 game against the Carolina Panthers but threw three interceptions in a 31-24 loss and was shut down for the season.

Earlier in the year, Rodgers broke up with actress Olivia Munn after a three-year relationship.
