Racing around a track at speeds that can exceed 200 miles per hour would seem to indicate a form of fearlessness and toughness. But NASCAR’s Ty Dillon also has a tender side, and it revealed itself big time after the arrival of his baby girl, Oakley Ray.
Much like country music, NASCAR has experienced a bit of a baby boom. Ty’s wife, Haley, delivered Oakley in November, just as her daddy was finishing up the last race of the season at Homestead-Miami.
It appeared that Ty went from being one of the hottest young drivers in the series to being completely wrapped around his baby girl’s finger in a matter of days. And when he shared a new video on his Instagram page, it was confirmed.
Seeing him with his daughter in his arms and dancing her around the couple’s kitchen is enough to make the iciest heart melt, but in his caption, Ty writes, “Those moments when god’s blessings steal your heart! I love my girls! @haleykdillon #oakleyraydillon #love #blessed,” and we are done.
So is Mom, who can be heard in the background exclaiming, “Oh, my heart.”
Same, Haley. Same.
Haley was one of those great and beautiful expectant moms that took us on her pregnancy journey with fun updates and incredible pictures, even looking smoking hot in swimsuits! In fact, at about 34 weeks at her baby shower, the former Charlotte Hornets cheerleader looked like she could give birth at any second. Fortunately, Oakley held on until her appointed time.
And boy, was she worth the wait! What a cutie-patootie!
In addition to celebrating their new little rosebud, Ty and Haley are also toasting their third anniversary. The gorgeous couple tied the knot on Dec. 20, 2014, at the North Carolina vineyard owned by NASCAR owner Richard Childress, who also happens to be Ty’s grandfather.
That’s keeping it all in the family!
