Danica Patrick has officially ended her seven-year marriage. 

The 31-year-old NASCAR driver and her now ex-hubby, Paul Hospenthal, finalized their divorce April 17, after announcing last November they had decided to call it quits, according to ESPN

"I am sad to inform my fans that after 7 years, Paul and I have decided to amicably end our marriage," Patrick wrote on her Facebook page at the time.

"This isn't easy for either of us, but mutually it has come to this. He has been an important person and friend in my life and that's how we will remain moving forward."

The racing superstar, who cited the marriage as "irretrievably broken" in court documents, has since moved on with fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse, making waves when they went public with their relationship in February at Charlotte Motor Speedway's annual media tour.

Patrick and Hospenthal, who had a prenup in place, plan to divide the property they acquired together during their marriage at a later date.
