With the birth of their daughter this morning, racer Jeff Gordon and his model wife Ingrid Vandebosch became parents at 9:09 am in New York City. Ella Sofia weighed in at 7 lbs, 1 oz, and is 20 inches long. She was born by scheduled cesarean section because she was breech, but let everyone know she was coming — Ingrid’s water broke on the way to the hospital.
In a statement on his website, Jeff said,
It’s been an absolutely incredible experience. Ingridcame through amazingly and we’re both really happy and overjoyed. Wecan’t wait to get home and start our lives together as a family.
Thanks to CBB readers Brooke, Lisa, and Christina.
