"I'm embarrassed to say, I did what these old men do, I got a younger model. Because Danny's only 31," Shepard, 46, says of Australian Formula One driver, Daniel Riccardo.
Shepard says that after Riccardo appeared on his Armchair Expert podcast, the two "kind of hit it off."
"I pushed hard, got a phone number. We've just really been building this thing that's culminated in us seeing the world together, really," Shepard quips, sharing photos of the two in matching overalls, holding hands while sightseeing in London, and more.
"They're really cute. I fully support this," Bell, 41, insists of the budding bromance.
Shepard also shares a video of himself in Austin, Texas, where he jumped off a bridge and into the river while Riccardo and other friends were tubing.
"I thought he was so impressed because he's a Formula One driver telling me to be more careful. It was a real feather in the cap," Shepard says of the moment. "And then I have since realized he's just worried because I'm old as hell. I'm 46, I could be his father. He wasn't worried it was too shallow. He just thought I might break something."
