Watch: Danica Patrick Opens Up About Relationship with Aaron Rodgers

Danica Patrick has a new workout buddy—and love interest. 

The racecar driver took to Instagram on April 16 to share a cute pic of her and new guy Carter Comstock. She captioned the post, "Beach workouts are fun for one, but better with you." In the photo, Carter kisses Danica's head as she smiles for the selfie. 

Danica's followers gushed over the new relationship in the comments section. One teased, "Love seeing you happy, Danica. Now this is his warning that your fans are protective. We have your back!" Another added, "So happy to see you with someone. @danicapatrick you deserve happiness and the RIGHT guy."

Carter is the co-founder of meal-prep company Freshly. He and Danica are both investors in beam, the direct-to-consumer wellness brand, however it's unclear right now how these two first met. 

Danica's new relationship comes less than a year after she and NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers split up following more than two years together. In February, Aaron confirmed that he and Big Little Lies star Shailene Woodley were engaged after beginning their romance last year.

Shortly after her split from Aaron, Danica clapped back at an Instagram troll who criticized her for allowing the relationship to come to an end. 

"If we let what one person thinks of us be our reality, we are doomed," she wrote at the time. "Realize that what someone says to us has a lot more to do with their own wounds and reality than ours."

And just last month, Danica spoke to Tamron Hall about what she wants in a partner


"When you know what you don't want, you know what you do want," Danica explained. "They're going to be an extremely high-quality person with boxes to check. It's not as if there's a lot of boxes to check, it's just that I know what I want now. I'm not willing to compromise or bend as much."

A solid workout partner? That's a big check for Carter.
