Danica Patrick’s divorce from Paul Hospenthal is now finalized, after the couple mutually agreed to dissolve the relationship late last year. The petition was filed in January.
Patrick announced the divorce last year on Facebook, writing, “I am sad to inform my fans that after 7 years, Paul and I have decided to amicably end our marriage. 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.”
Patrick is now in a relationship with fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and became the first woman to win the Sprint Cup Pole in February.
“I feel like I’ve just reached a point where I’ve stopped overthinking things and stopped trying to be scared of what might happen on the other side,” she said. “You’re just living your life, and that’s that.”
