One of the most famous couples in auto racing became first-time parents early Monday morning as Graham Rahal and wife Courtney Force announced the birth of a baby girl.

It capped an eventful week for the family, which had evacuated the Force compound in Yorba Linda, California, a week earlier on Oct. 26because of the Blue Ridge Fire that spread across more than 13,000 acres in Southern California.

Force, whose due date had been in November, also stayed active right up until childbirth, tweeting a photo Friday of joining her family (including legendary NHRA champion John Force) to vote at 39 weeks pregnant.
