When you are six months pregnant and your hubby is getting ready to go out of town again soon, it doesn’t take much to make you a tad upset.

Just ask Amy Earnhardt. She’s currently pregnant with the couple’s first child, due in May, and seems her husband has been crazy busy lately as well. Not only did he head to Minnesota last week for Super Bowl LII, but he will also soon be heading overseas to help cover the Winter Olympics. So, Amy couldn’t help but head to her social media on Feb. 6 to document something that her husband just did, when he thought he was helping.

“Love it when my husband cleans,” she wrote. “Except now my stamps are gone.”

Poor Amy.

Of course, Dale Jr.’s recent trip to Minnesota also held something special for Amy thanks to an encounter with none other than Jimmy Fallon.

“We were in the NBC suite watching the game,” Dale Jr. recalled on his podcast on Feb. 6. “Everything’s great. Hanging out with Bode Miller and his wife – super nice folks – and they’re expecting and Amy’s six months pregnant. Jimmy Fallon comes in there, and he sat down for a quarter and watched the game with us. He must know the family really well, the NBC folks. So we’re sitting there watching the game, and he’s getting ready to leave – Jimmy Fallon – he’s gotta go, I guess, and do his show back in New York. And he was kind of walking out and one of the ladies in there said, ‘Would you like to say hello to him before he leaves?’ I said, ‘Of course! Yeah.’ So he comes over, and [I] said, ‘Hey, how ya doing?’ He goes, ‘Oh man, so good to see you.’”

Dale Jr. continued telling the story to his podcast co-host, Mike Davis.

“I was like, ‘What are you going to do if you meet Jimmy Fallon?’ This could have been anybody, but it was Jimmy Fallon. And I’m [saying,] ‘Jimmy, Amy’s pregnant. Will you bless our baby?’ I don’t know what that means. So he leaned down, and he said, ‘Hey! You are at the Super Bowl! I can’t wait to meet you!’ He blessed the baby, she’s going to be awesome. At my expense, whatever this has done to my reputation, it’ll be a great story to tell my daughter.”

Dale and Amy certainly sound excited about their little girl, who is already receiving her fair share of presents. “Aunt Liz spoiling baby E already,” Amy said on her Instagram on Feb. 3 next to a pic of a pair of Hermes booties.

We can’t wait for this little girl to get here! And we can’t wait to see daddy try to stay out of the doghouse!
