Danica Patrick, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. ‘Excited’ to Go Public With Relationship


Danica PatrickDanica Patrick, who is recently coming off a divorce with her husband Paul Hospenthal in November, is taking a lap with a familiar face, NASCAR’s Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

According to The Associated Press, Patrick and Stenhouse Jr. recently went public with their relationship.

“I have a boyfriend, his name is Richard,” Patrick told The AP. “I think I am just finally excited to tell someone about this.”

Stenhouse likes to keep his status on the down low, but when dating someone with Patrick’s caliber, it’s hard to deny.

“Yes we are dating,” Stenhouse said. “I don’t normally say too much about my private life, always been focused on the track. I didn’t want to confirm at media day so that we could keep the focus on the season, the Gen-6 [car], my sponsors and team. That’s what it’s all about for me.”

Ultimately, these two will be competing on the track, which will make things very interesting.
