Danica Patrick is the first woman to win the Indy 500, and also happens to be the most successful female in the field of motorsports. After retiring from racing, she has now jumped behind the microphone to play the role of analyst for Fox Sports.

You can see and hear Patrick give live commentary and feedback during the NASCAR races. She has recently been seen around the Formula One paddock as well, where she has joined the F1 commentators and given her insight on the on-track action.

Despite retiring at the end of the 2018 Indy 500, Danica Patrick's personal life has always been in the limelight.

Patrick met her ex-husband Paul Hospenthal while recovering from a hip injury. The couple were married for almost eight years but do not have any children.

They ended their marriage in 2013, after which the two went their separate ways.

What does Paul Edward Hospenthal do?

While we know that he was born in 1965, there is very limited information about Hospenthal's past. Following the completion of his high school studies, Hospenthal enrolled at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, after which he studied Sports Medicine at the University Of Michigan.

Hospenthal later started serving as a therapist for a number of well-known athletes. He has nearly 30 years of experience in this position.

Working in the medical field and in the sports industry, Hospenthal has amassed huge wealth. His estimated net worth is around $1 million.

Whom did Danica Patrick date after her divorce with Paul Edward Hospenthal?

Shortly after announcing her divorce, Danica Patrick started dating NASCAR Cup Series driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr.. They were together for five years, until their breakup in 2017.

In the 2017 EPIX documentary Danica, the racing icon said that she wanted to settle down and have a family of her own.

"The relationship has really evolved into this really comfortable space where we’re … just really happy. It’s really straightforward and simple. And we don’t argue,” she said.

In 2018, the US Weekly confirmed Danica's relationship with NFL star Aaron Rodgers. But in 2020, the couple broke up and went their separate ways.

After her split from the NFL star, Danica confirmed her relationship with Carter Comstock when she shared a picture of them together via her Instagram. But after just a year together, in 2022, Patrick confirmed that they were no longer a couple because "it didn't work," according to People magazine.
