Patrick and Rodgers have been linked romantically since the start of the new year, right before Patrick began promoting her new fitness book.
She told the AP the two first met at the 2012 ESPY Awards and that despite her allegiance to the Bears, "I told him a long time ago I'd always root for him as a player."Now I am probably going to cheer for the whole team," she added.
"Yes, Aaron and I are dating." Patrick says the two met at the ESPYs back in 2012 -- and have apparently stayed friendly.
Danica says she's a longtime Chicago Bears fan -- but has always rooted for Aaron individually.
She was later linked to actor Elyes Gabel and businessman Nick Harborne.
