Brad Keselowski’s daughter calls him ‘Dada’ for the first time


Brad Keselowski received a nice gift from his daughter Scarlett on Valentine’s Day.

The girl, who was born last May to Keselowski and his girlfriend, Paige White, bestowed upon the driver a name that children have called their father’s since the beginning of time. Probably.

She called Keselowski “Dada.”

“Yeah, it is pretty amazing,” Keselowski said at Daytona 500 Media Day. “She looked over and just started saying ‘dada’, it really made my day. It was really cool.”

But the two-syllable phrase isn’t the first partial word Scarlett has uttered according to the 2012 Sprint Cup champion.

“She says ‘hey’ in the morning but there is an argument we are having as to whether it is a real word or not,” Keselowski said. “She just wakes up in the morning and looks at you and says, ‘hey’, and that could mean anything.”
