NASCAR star Jeff Gordon has released new pictures of the latest addition to his racing team: his daughter.

“Jeff and Ingrid proudly present Baby Ella,” says the intro to the nine-photo gallery of pictures of Ella Sofia, who was born to Gordon and his actress wife Ingrid Vandebosch on June 20.

“To me, it’s perfect timing in my life to be a father, because I want to be involved, I want to be there,” Gordon has told Rochester, N.Y.’s Democrat and Chronicle. “I’m excited about all the aspects of it and the challenges that come along with it.”
