As much as everything that is happening in the life of Dale Earnhardt Jr. right now, perhaps the thing that his fans are most looking forward to in 2018 is seeing him become a daddy later this year.
And while his wife Amy has been relatively quiet on her socials about the ins and outs of her pregnancy, she did post quite a lengthy update on her Instagram page on March 13 about how she is feeling now at 33 weeks along. It was her first Instagram activity since she posted the couple’s vacation pics on Feb. 24.
“Currently feeling like this happy, fat unicorn,” she joked alongside a pic of a blue cake. “Belly full of Wendy’s and my little wiggle worm seems to be enjoying it. She moves quite a bit after I eat, and I imagine it’s because she’s doing the ‘I love food’ shoulder shimmy. I’ve never felt more amazed and appreciative of my body. A woman’s body is simply amazing, magical and wonderful!”
On March 11, Amy also posted a quick update on her and Dale Jr.’s little girl, who is scheduled to race into the world come May. “She’s doing well,” Amy wrote when a fan asked how things were going with the baby. “Growing rapidly and moving A LOT.”
And while the fans are waiting for the baby, Dale Jr. has been busy with his new broadcasting career after his NASCAR retirement. After attending both the Winter Olympics and the Super Bowl on assignment for NBC, he recently started his stint as an analyst for NBC Sports Network’s “NASCAR America,” joining host Leigh Diffey and analysts Steve Letarte and Jeff Burton.
“I’m really excited about it,” he said about his NBC Sports plans during the his March 12 debut on “NASCAR America,” as reported by “USA Today.”. “I’ve had a great opportunity the last several weeks to experience a lot of big things, with the Super Bowl and then the Olympics. So far it has been an amazing ride. I’m excited to be back together with Steve, and be able to spend the weekend with him watching races and calling races. I’ve got a lot to learn from this guy over the next year.”
