Danica Patrick and Aaron Rodgers are celebrating their love for one another.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, the 36-year-old retired race car driver shared a sweet photo of herself spending time with her quarterback boyfriend, 35.

“I love doing life with you! Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!!! 💘” Patrick wrote alongside a photo showing the couple standing outside together. In the photo, the wind is blowing Patrick’s hair in her face, while Rodgers stands behind her.

The Green Bay Packers player went on to share his own loving tribute.

“Happy Valentine’s Day @danicapatrick,” he wrote on Instagram, adding several flame and red heart emojis, as well as the sweet hashtag “ilu.”

Alongside his short but sweet note, Rodgers shared a trio of images of the couple cuddling up together, including one that appeared to have been taken in New Zealand at the Hobbiton Movie set, where fans of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies can tour one of the locations where the movies were filmed.

Opening up about their relationship last year, Patrick explained that she’s never had a partner who was willing to split the check on dates.

“I finally found someone who pays for things. That’s never happened,” she said during a November 2018 episode of In Depth with Graham Bensinger. “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.”

Patrick was previously married to Paul Hospenthal in 2005 before splitting in 2012. She later dated fellow racer Ricky Stenhouse Jr. for 5 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.

The couple’s relationship also constitutes new ground for Rodgers, who has become more open about his private life since dating Patrick.

In an interview with Artful Living in 2018, Rodgers revealed that now that he’s dating Patrick, he doesn’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,” he continued, adding that given the depth of their feelings for one another, all of their Instagram photos together are only natural.

“There are going to be posts with each other because we enjoy each other’s company a lot,” he remarked. “We’re really attracted to one another.”
