Greg Zipadelli, 41, NASCAR crew chief for Tony Stewart, is a dad for the third time after his wife Nan gave birth to son Gianni Gregory Zipadelli on Wednesday, June 11th.

The couple had scheduled a Cesarean section for Monday, June 9th, so that there would be no conflict between the birth and Greg having to leave for the race at Pocono Raceway on Sunday, June 15th. However, that didn’t go as planned, and "it was close," Greg shared.

Greg explained that he immediately thought, "This is not going to work out very well for us." Despite his fears, everything came together in time and "the baby is really healthy."

Gianni joins siblings Zachary Charles, 6, and Elwina Sophia, 2. The pregnancy was announced in March.
