Danica Patrick, Less Than Three Months After Filing for Divorce, Confirms She's Dating Driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr

Danica Patrick filed for divorce from her husband in November, and today has revealed to Jenna Fryer of the AP that she’s got a new boyfriend: NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. He’s five years her junior.

Said Patrick:

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

Said Stenhouse:

“Yes we are dating,” he 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.”

You’ll be hearing plenty about these two in 2013 as they compete against each other “for rookie of the year honors in NASCAR’s top Sprint Cup Series.”
