NFL quarterback and two-time MVP player Aaron Rodgers is one of the most eligible bachelors in the world. During three years he dated a black-haired beautiful actress Olivia Munn, whom you know from her roles in the films “Along for the Ride”, “Magic Mike” and others.
But since 2018 the athlete is dating a race car driver Danica Patrick. At first two sport stars kept their affair in secret, but opened up about it after being caught by paparazzi. Two sweet hearts were having dinner in one of Scottsdale restaurants in the company of some friends.
