As the early May due date for Dale Earnhardt Jr. and wife Amy’s baby girl approaches, it’s fun to wonder just what this kid is going to be like. Will she inherit Amy’s cheekbones? Will she have her daddy’s grit and heart? Will she love racing as much as her parents do?
Well, all of that remains to be seen. But what we do know is that this little one is going to be powerful!
At the: 40 mark of the YouTube video taken from Amy’s InstaStory, you can see Amy showing off her growing belly, with one piece of video specifically showing little baby girl Earnhardt kicking away in her belly.
That makes all of this pretty real, huh Dale Jr.?
The video also features an adorable little pic of the soon-to-be parents, who seem like they are pretty calm and collected about the baby that will be here this spring. And this little family deserves to spend some time lounging on the couch, as they are in the photo, considering all that they have ahead of them in the coming months.
In addition to continuing to run JR Motorsports along with his sister Kelley throughout the 2018 season, Dale Jr. has joined NBC Sports as a broadcaster and, in that role, will soon travel to work both the Super Bowl and the winter Olympics. And if that wasn’t enough, he also will serve as the grand marshal for this year’s Daytona 500.
Oh, and let’s not forget that DIY Network home renovation show he and Amy are currently working on.
Dale Jr. also recently made big news with the confirmation that he will continue to work with his sponsor , Nationwide, throughout the coming season.
Everything on Dale Jr.’s plate does a lot to remind fans that their favorite driver won’t be climbing into the car on Feb. 18 at the Daytona 500. Alex Bowman, in fact, will be driving the well-known No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet on a full-time basis for the 2018 season, and he recently weighed in on taking the place of such a racing legend.
“Obviously, the No. 88 has a larger following and I’m going to do my best to keep JR Nation happy and keep that No. 88 car up front,” Alex said on Jan. 23 at NASCAR’s media tour at the Charlotte [North Carolina] Convention Center. “That is what they hired me to do. There are a lot of fans looking for a new guy, and hopefully I can be a guy that people want to cheer for. I’m a regular, down-to-earth guy and I feel like I’m pretty relatable to a lot of the average NASCAR fans. I work on a lot of street car and racecar stuff myself. I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty, and I’m very appreciative of this opportunity. Hopefully they can kind of relate to me and become fans.”
