Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick are no strangers to making appearances at the ESPYS, considering that they first met back in 2012 on that same red carpet.
However, this year’s ESPYS, was the first time the couple has made a public appearance, since they started dating in January.
The former NASCAR driver hosted the 2018 ESPYS on Wednesday, and was seen in a black velvet mini dress, with her handsome beau by her side.
“My first ESPYS was 2005, and I have been a fan, coming back every year since,” Patrick said in a statement when news broke of her hosting gig. “It is the biggest night of the year for sports. Every year, I leave feeling so inspired! I am excited to be able to help celebrate, laugh and cry about the past year in sports with everyone. It’s going to be a great night and one full of more than a few surprises.”
Viewers were not pleased to see Patrick hosting the event, as it has always been done by a man. However, she made history by becoming the first woman to ever host the ESPYS.
The couple both split with their exes last year and started dating shortly after. They kept in touch throughout the years via email until they finally exchanged numbers.
The new couple is not shy when it comes to PDA. They shared a loving kiss at Patrick’s last ride during the Indy 500 back in May. They’ve also taken a few trips together.
Congrats Aaron & Danica and here’s to many more ESPYS!
