Danica Patrick can’t stop publicly swooning for her new honey, Aaron Rodgers, but we have zero intention of wishing she would stop because it’s way too cute. Bonus: It’s an endearingly good look for her. The pair has only been an item publicly since January, but seeing Patrick get so vulnerable already about why she likes him is really refreshing.
While the video clip of the moment has yet to drop, Us Weekly came through with a write-up of all the good things Patrick recently said about Rodgers on The Rachael Ray Show. The episode will air on April 30. During the preview, Patrick tells Ray, “He’s funny. He’s very kind. He’s thoughtful. He’s super-smart. And he’s really good at football.” That last one’s a little obvious, but we’ll forgive her for it. “And he’s tall and he’s big, and I like that,” Patrick added.
This is one of the few times that Patrick has really opened up about dating Rodgers. It’s totally understandable, but we won’t lie: We love when they let us into their world, like Patrick did when she put up sweet Instagram photos of her and Rodgers from her recent birthday.
Patrick continued this trend when she not only listed what she likes about Rodgers, but also one of the recent trips that they took together. “We just went on a trip around the world, literally. We met the Dalai Lama. We did a mission trip for giving hearing aids to people in Africa,” she told Ray. It sounds like the trip was a ton of fun and that she and Rodgers had a blast meeting folks on their trip. “There’s one guy that I look at and his face makes me laugh. So for a week straight, I just laughed… I think I have a six-pack from it.”
Patrick and Rodgers seem to have done quite a lot in the four short months since taking their relationship public. Aside from this epic trip across the globe and her birthday celebration, Rodgers also turned out to the Daytona 500 in February to support Patrick, who was racing. While Rodgers hasn’t really commented on how he feels about Patrick, the fact that he’s showing up for important events and is giving Patrick all the lovebird vibes has us thinking this couple is perfectly matched.
