Danica Patrick and her husband Paul Hospenthal are getting a divorce. The announcement came on Patrick’s Facebook page this afternoon.
Message from Danica Patrick to her fans: “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.”
Naturally the announcement led to a bunch of perverted older dudes courting the young driver in the comments section.

-David Sica Wish I could be your man
I sincerely hope that’s Eric Chaney’s real number. Given Danica’s popularity, he’ll have a number of special calls from fans late into the evening.
