NASCAR America: Dale Jr. and wife ‘giddy’ over baby due in May (video)

Dale Earnhardt Jr. talks to the NASCAR America crew about preparing for fatherhood and how he and his wife Amy found out they were having a baby girl.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. was the special guest during Tuesday’s edition of NASCAR America from the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

One of the biggest topics is Monday’s news that Junior and wife Amy are expecting their first child, a daughter.

Earnhardt further revealed during Tuesday’s show that Amy is due to deliver in May.

Here’s some of his thoughts on fatherhood:

  • “I am (ready to be a dad). It’s a very exciting thing and me and Amy are thrilled and over the moon.”
  • “I have no idea what I’ve got myself into and I couldn’t be more excited about it. This is something Amy and I have been working toward for a really long time.”
  • “All those little tiny moments during this short period of time, there’s been so many cool little moments. Me and her have been giggling ... and giddy for so long. It’s finally good to be able to tell everybody, to share with my mother, my sister. their reactions were priceless. And obviously, we’re getting a tremendous amount of support from everybody.”
