01/10/2013: After 7 years of marriage, and countless rumors suggesting the two were on the outs, Danica Patrick has filed for divorce from her husband, Paul Hospenthal. In documents filed in Arizona courts, Patrick says the marriage is irretrievably broken.
There have been rumors that the couple has been split for a couple months now, but this is as definitive as it gets. We’ll be on the lookout for anything new here.
Danica Patrick’s husband Paul Hospenthal has a unique story to tell friends when it comes to how he met his wife. The two met when Hospenthal was Patrick’s physical therapist who helped her recover from a yoga injury. There’s something so ironic about Danica Patrick injuring herself doing Yoga, while trying to prove that she can hang in a tough guy’s sport. We’re not challenging her as a woman, we’re challenging her as a tough broad. I mean seriously… of all the stuff that can go wrong behind the wheel, and she injures herself by stretching? I mean, it’s intense stretching, but seriously… right? Am I crazy? Don’t answer that… And honestly, we know she can still kick our ass.
The two were married November 19, 2005, and Danica converted to Roman Catholicism for Hospenthal following their nuptials. Paul was born in 1966(or 16 years before Danica) in Tacoma, WA
