The 36-year-old racing driver recently stopped by The Rachael Ray Show, airing April 30, when she was asked what she liked about her beau during a speed-round game.
“He’s funny, he’s very kind, he’s thoughtful, he’s super smart," Patrick said of Rodgers. "And he’s really good at football. And he’s tall and he’s big and I like that.”
Patrick also opened up about the recent trip the couple took to Africa.
“We just went on a trip around the world, literally," she said. "We met the Dalai Lama, we did a mission trip for giving hearing aids to people in Africa. And there were some seriously funny people on this trip. There’s one guy that I look at and his face makes me laugh. So for a week straight, I just laughed….I think I have a six-pack from it.”
Since then, the pair hasn't been shy about their relationship. Patrick and Rodgers kissed openly at the Daytona 500 in February before she hit the track, and last month, they celebrated her birthday with her family. Patrick Instagrammed a picture of Rodgers and her family, writing, "I love getting older!!!!!!!!!!! Super grateful for all the love around me in my life! People, work, opportunities, dreams.....full heart space! Don’t forget to dream big for the things you want in your life! ❤"
