Watch your back, Aaron Rodgers!

A fan sitting in the row behind Rodgers and his girlfriend Danica Patrick at a Milwaukee Bucks game on Wednesday appeared to buy Patrick a drink, causing a hilarious viral moment.

In the clip, the man taps Patrick, 37, on the shoulder before reaching over to give her a cup of what appeared to be white wine. Patrick then turns around, offering the man cash for the drink but he refuses, handing a drink to the retired race car driver and her friend, who was sitting next to her.

After she has the drink in hand, Patrick can be seen laughing and shaking her head, while Rodgers, 35, appears unbothered.

Rodgers is a minority owner of the Bucks, who beat the Boston Celtics 116-91 during Wednesday’s game.

After the moment went viral, social media users chimed in with their own hilarious reactions.

“My man shooting his shot with Danica with Aaron literally sitting right there you gotta respect it,” one user wrote. Another added, “Shooting his shot with Rodgers right there. That’s a boss move. No doubt about it. Even got her friend a drink. Real recognize real!”

However, it doesn’t look like the couple’s relationship will be in trouble anytime soon.

The pair have not been shy about professing their feelings on social media since making their red carpet debut as a couple in July at the 2018 ESPY Awards, where Patrick made history by becoming the first woman to ever host the event.

In March of this year, Rodgers wrote Patrick a sweet message on Instagram in celebration of her 37th birthday.

“Happy Birthday to this Beautiful, intelligent, strong, driven, bad ass woman that I get to stand beside in this life @danicapatrick,” Rodgers captioned the post, which included an adorable photo of the couple smiling at each other on the ESPYs red carpet.

He also included hashtags for the phrases, “lover,” “friend,” “travel partner,” “smokin hot” and “fine wine.”

Earlier this year, Patrick gushed over Rodgers on Valentine’s Day, sharing a photo featuring the couple standing outside together.

“I love doing life with you!” she wrote.

Patrick was previously married to Paul Hospenthal from 2005 to 2012. She later dated fellow racer Ricky Stenhouse Jr. for five years before splitting in 2017.

Rodgers, who helped to lead the Packers to victory in the 2010 Super Bowl, dated Olivia Munn until 2017 when they split after three years together.

In October 2018, Rodgers credited Patrick with helping him learn how to let loose and not stay so focused on keeping his private life so under wraps.

“I don’t feel like I have to be reserved all the time. 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,” he told Artful Living, adding that the couple likes traveling together.

“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 just love staying in, too. She eats really healthy. She’s inspired me in that way.”

Patrick, meanwhile, praised Rodgers’ generous side, saying in November 2018 that he is the only partner she’s ever had who pays for things.

“It was super uncomfortable in the beginning with Aaron to have him paying for things, because it was so out of the norm for me,” she said on an episode of In Depth with Graham Bensinger.

“It’s just a pattern, I had to break that pattern of like, ‘I got it, let me take care of you.’ But I think it’s also good because no one’s really done that for him either. … But, yes, he pays for most things.”
