DANICA Patrick wants to marry her new boyfriend Ricky Stenhouse Jr. — but she’ll have to get divorced first.
The 30-year-old NASCAR is keen to tie the knot with the 25-year-old racing hunk.
“After Danica spun out of control and hit the wall, Ricky was the first thing that came to her mind,” said an insider.
“She’s madly in love with him and wants to be his bride. Friends predict they’ll have a racetrack wedding soon.”
Danica filed for divorce from hubby Paul Hospenthal, a physical therapist 17 years her senior, on Jan. 3. They met when he treated her for an injury, and tied the knot in 2005.
“Danica is still reeling from the crash,” said the source. “But it’s made her reprioritize what’s really important in her life.
“She told a pal, ‘Whatever it is you really want to do, you need to do it and not wait.’ She’s ready to prove wrong all the naysayers who predicted her romance with Ricky wouldn’t last.”
