Dale Earnhardt Jr. is a married man!
The 42-year-old NASCAR driver tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Amy Reimann at a picture-perfect wedding on New Year’s Eve. The ceremony took place at Childress Vineyards in Lexington, North Carolina — a venue owned by fellow racer Richard Childress.
“@dalejr and I are beginning 2017 as Mr. & Mrs.! Thank you for loving me and making me your wife. My heart is truly filled with love and joy,” Reimann said on social media.
The morning after the fun-filled night of lavish celebration (and lots of New Year’s Eve dancing and glitter!), Reimann took to social media to poke fun at her new hubby’s exhaustion.
“I sure wish my husband would wake up! @DaleJr,” she tweeted the next day.
Earnhardt proposed to Reimann while on vacation in Germany, the pair confirmed in 2015. The engagement was celebrated by the popular NASCAR racer’s many fans, who had been goading him to get down on one knee for years. The pair started dating in 2009.
“I’m completely overwhelmed with love & joy. Happiest girl in the world! I love you so much @DaleJr,” Reimann posted on Twitter, alongside a glowing photo of the couple in what appears to be a church, at the time.
He added: “Looking forward to the rest of my life with this amazing girl.”
Congrats to the happy couple!
