The short period of time Jeff Gordon has spent with new daughter Ella Sofia, 3-weeks, has nonetheless profoundly impacted the NASCAR driver, who says that babies and kids are "all I want to talk about now."
[I have] a whole new respect, not just for parents, but especially for moms.
Jeff and his wife, model Ingrid Vandebosch, released new images of their daughter yesterday when Jeff co-hosted Live with Regis and Kelly. According to Jeff — who first introduced Ella Sofia on his website last week — the photographs were taken by a good friend and "they turned out fantastic." Like many first-time fathers, Jeff says he was emotional in the delivery room.
My emotions were all over the place, because I was kind of helpless. She’s having the baby, and there’s nothing I can do but get the doctors…I’m sure that was very helpful, though…The baby came out and we’re both crying — in shock — and then you hear her cry for the first time. I look over and I’m like ‘Honey, how are you?’
