Hot new couple alert!

A month after officially confirming their relationship, Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick aren't hiding their love. Rodgers was at the Daytona 500, one of the final races of Patrick's career, over the weekend to cheer on his GF, and that included giving her a big smooch before the race in front of fans, spectators, news cameras and everyone.

Aww! How cute are they?!

Last month, Patrick officially confirmed she and Rogers are an item, telling the Associated Press, "Yes, Aaron and I are dating." They met way back in 2012 at the ESPY Awards, where Rodgers was accepting an award for Best NFL Player. She's not saying whether she had eyes for him then, but soon after, Rodgers started dating model and actor Olivia Munn. They broke up last April, and clearly, Patrick saw her opportunity.

They might be careful with the PDA, though, because Rodgers has been pretty vocal about publicity being a big factor in his high-profile split from Munn. In interviews after the breakup, he repeatedly talked about how hard it is to have a relationship in the public eye. It looks like he may be heading down that path with Patrick, and we'd hate to see their relationship go the same way.

For now, though, they're clearly very happy. Ahead of the Daytona 500, Patrick posted a series of photos to Instagram showing her with all her family — and Rodgers.
