Baby on the Way for NASCAR Driver Matt Kenseth
There’s another NASCAR baby on the way — one that’s due to arrive “pretty soon.” Driver Matt Kenseth and his wife Katie are expecting their first child together in July. “We’ll find out when you guys do, I guess,” Matt laughs about their choice of a delivery surprise. “Actually, I hope I’ll know a little while before you guys do.”
“There aren’t many surprises left in life, so we’re going to wait to find out. We talked about it [and] we don’t really want to find out. Neither of us really cares if it’s a girl or a boy. If it’s healthy, that’s all we really care about.”
The Daytona 500 winner knows that he “can’t really control when the baby comes that much, so I’m just going to kind of play it by ear.” He hopes the baby will makes his or her debut on a Monday, rather than a race day because “I haven’t made any plans [for a relief driver] yet.”
Matt, 37, and Katie were married December 4, 2000. The new baby will join Matt’s 16-year-old son, Ross, from a previous relationship.
