Wave the checkered flag, they’ve crossed the finish line! NASCAR champion Matt Kenseth and his wife Katie welcomed their first child together earlier this week, the proud papa posted on his official website. Daughter Kaylin Nicola Kenseth was born on Monday, July 6th in North Carolina. While no further birth details have been released, Matt reports that “mom and baby are doing fine!”

As for newly crowned big brother Ross, Matt’s son from a previous relationship, the 16-year-old took to Twitter to announce the arrival of his baby sister. Hours after Kaylin’s birth, Ross tweeted the good news.

The couple were married in December 2004. The pregnancy was announced last month, with Matt sharing that they had opted for a delivery surprise. “There aren’t many surprises left in life, so we’re going to wait to find out,” he said.
