Aaron Rodgers compliments ‘doubly awesome’ girlfriend Danica Patrick

Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick are still going strong.

Speaking with Michele Tafoya in an interview for Artful Living, the Packers quarterback dropped a four-letter L-word when speaking about his relationship with the retired NASCAR driver.

“We’re just two people who enjoy being around each other and love each other. We’re really into each other. So there are going to be posts with each other because we enjoy each other’s company a lot. We’re really attracted to each other,” Rodgers, 34, said.

First linked in late 2017, Patrick, 36, confirmed she and Rodgers were an item back in January. The couple, who appeared together on multiple red carpets this past summer, are also avid travelers.

“We really enjoy traveling. She went on the trip to India and Africa, and we had a blast. And we’ve taken some trips domestically that have been fun,” he explained.

“I’m a little further out there in my love for history; I want to go to historical sites around the world. She’s getting into it as well, but she’s spontaneous. She’s up for anything travel-wise, which is fun. She’s a good travel partner because she’s so laid-back and low-maintenance. And she’s a hell of a cook, so we love just staying in, too. She eats really healthy. She’s inspired me in that way.”

Though Patrick, a former Bears fan, has become Rodgers’ biggest cheerleader, he also has supported her in times of need, namely her much-maligned performance at this year’s ESPY Awards.

“I’m really proud of her for that. I always enjoy going to the ESPYs, but to finally have a woman up there was awesome. Doubly awesome that I’m dating her,” Rodgers said.

While it appears the ice has thawed between Rodgers and Patrick’s family, namely her father, game days are still a touchy subject, especially if they’re in blue and orange.

“They can’t come to the games if they’re doing that,” he said.

Rodgers previously dated actress Olivia Munn for three years, before calling it quits in April 2017.
