Aaron's girlfriend, Danica Patrick, who is a former American racing driver, became the first woman to host the ESPY Awards in July 2018.

Danica was a Bears fan, but Aaron was a starting quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, which is a rival of the Bears. Even her father TJ Patrick was a longterm fan (over 50 years) of Bears and raised his family a Chicago Bears sworn. But during Aaron's encounter with Danica's father, he gave the stamp of approval and said there are no problems for his daughter to be a fan of Aaron. TJ found the Green Bay quarterback intelligent and liked his sense of humor.

Though the couple did not confirm their dating till late January 2018, their dating rumors breezed across the tabloids. On 13 January 2018, the couple attended dinner together at The Mission in Scottsdale, Arizona with a couple of friends. Later, they confirmed their relationship and appeared in 2018 ESPY's. On 19 July 2018, Danica took her Instagram and showcased the couple's snapshot.

Abused By Brett Favre; Denied Gay Accusations

The American football quarterback's teammates thought he was a gay while he was a rookie at Packers. He got abused by the former American football quarterback, Brett Favre. According to the source, Brett humiliated him by inscribing his headgear. One of the friends of Aaron has also described the incident by saying,

Aaron does not have a kind word to say about Brett. Nothing even slightly kind. He was always a dick to him. It was never ending. Rodgers was the butt of jokes—some that he heard, many that he did not. A rumor circulated around the locker room that he was gay, based upon the fact that—unlike many of his teammates—he wasn’t one to brag about his penis size or his endless string of sexual conquests. 

Amidst the gay hoax, the NFL player talked with 540 ESPN Milwaukee in December 2013 and declared that he likes women and is not a gay. He denied all the accusations, and his relationship with Danica Patrick also proves that the NFL star is not a gay.
