Danica Patrick and Aaron Rodgers make red carpet debut at ESPYs

Looking really tan, really content and really happy, former race vehicle driver Danica Patrick stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Monday (July 16) to not only promote her hosting gig at the 2018 ESPY Awards on Wednesday (July 18, ) but also talk up her relationship with current boyfriend Aaron Rodgers.

First linked last December, the couple confirmed their romance in January.

"I'm the biggest Packers fan", Patrick revealed Monday on "Jimmy Kimmel Live".

Current and former Cleveland sports athletes were presented awards during Wednesday night's event.

The 36-year-old former NASCAR star also hopes she'll make us laugh and cry: "There are the triumphant moments that are wonderful, and then there are the sad losses".

This year, Simmons, along with four-time MVP LeBron James, was the target of Patrick's opener.

ESPY stands for Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly, making the awards show more than just who caught the most passes or scored the most points, though they do take that into account.

Host Danica Patrick also poked fun at some of Cleveland's own in her opening monologue. Every year, I leave feeling so inspired!

Patrick soldiered on, telling the audience, "We have to mention the elephant in the room".

"He's amusing, he's very kind, he's thoughtful, he's super smart", Patrick said of Rodgers.

"Danica learned to drive when she was nine, because that's when I got my fifth DUI", the mother character tells the camera.

Baker Mayfield, who was drafted by the Browns out of Oklahoma, won "Best College Athlete" honors.
