Referring to her boyfriend, she wrote,

Last night was a night I will never forget. Not only because it was so fun, but because of the people it took to get there and who are always in my corner. Haley, Allison, mom, dad, Brooke, Chase, Maura, Jeff, Bennett, and all the writers, Valdez, Jimmy..... and of course this one. It’s amazing when you find people you can lean on, and not worry about falling. Thank you.

Here's the sweet photo, check it out.

The ESPYs are certainly a special event for both of them as they first met at its 2012 ceremony.

During an appearance on Jenny McCarthy's SiriusXM show in May, Danica opened up about the couple's first meeting.

She said,

We both remember meeting each other, it was quick. But I got his email address and I remember thinking to myself back then, 'Oh...not a phone number, just an email address. Whatever.'

However, the duo's relationship was confirmed just this January when Danica confirmed that she has been dating Aaron following his split with actress Olivia Munn, whom he dated from 2014 to 2017.

Danica, meanwhile, had just moved on from her relationship with fellow NASCAR racer Ricky Stenhouse Jr. The former couple had started dating in November 2012 and announced that they had broken up in December 2017.

Additionally, Danica was previously married to physical therapist Paul Edward Hospenthal. The former couple first met at Paul's office in 2002 when the race driver had been recovering from a hip injury that she sustained during a yoga session.

The ended their marriage with a divorce in 2013.
