NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. is racing into parenthood again after he and his wife revealed they are expecting another baby. Earnhardt’s wife, Amy, shared a video to Instagram of her racing hubby learning about their little one on the way.

“Did you see her shirt,” she asked Dale, referring to their oldest daughter Ilsa. “Super amazing sister… what?!” the confused dad says.

The news doesn’t quite register at first as Dale asks “How do you know it’s a girl?” before realizing that Isla is the sister. “Oh, she’s the girl,” he says with a chuckle.

In another clip, Isla announces the news by proclaiming, “I’m gonna be a sister!”

Earnhardt has been loving life as a dad, admitting that it’s been the greatest joy of his life.

“Every time I look at Isla, I want to cry. Every time I look at Amy and her together – when Amy’s holding her or feeding her – I just can’t believe this is in my life,” he said, according to USA Today.

Isla was born in April 2018 and baby Earnhardt No.2 is expected later this year.
