Danica Patrick Met Aaron Rodgers At The 2012 ESPYs, Got His Email

With her last race coming up this Sunday at the Indy 500, Danica Patrick is doing her thing and making media rounds to promote her last hurrah on the track — and also her “wellness” book, Pretty Intense. Honestly I could not care less for either, but she did touch on boyfriend Aaron Rodgers during her appearance on “The Jenny McCarthy show.”

After 12 minutes or so of talking racing, Jenny finally delved into the personal details and asked Danica on the origins of her relationship with the Packers quarterback:

“We met at the ESPYs in 2012. We remember meeting each other. It was quick. I got his email address, and I remember thinking to myself back then, ‘Oh, on the down-low, not a phone number? Just an email address?”

Danica went on to say they kept in touch over the years but it wasn’t until recently (the Stenhouse split) that they upgraded from emails to phone numbers. For more on “Chicago” and “Green Bay,” check out the interview below — Rodgers talk begins around the 13-minute mark.

Sidenote: Speaking of the ESPYs, Danica was recently announced as the host for this summer’s show. It took ESPN 25 years to go with a female host.
