Kyle Larson bought his first house recently. Now, he’s ready to fill it with the pitter-patter of little feet.
The 21-year old Chip Ganassi Racing rookie announced during a media availability today at Michigan International raceway that he and girlfriend Katelyn Sweet will welcome their first child in late December.
“Me and Katelyn just found out we are having a baby, so it’s a really exciting time,” said Larson. “With how good the racing has been going, a new house and now (this), it’s been a lot of fun.
"(The due date) was Dec. 29 the first time she went,” he said. “Then it was Christmas, and now it is kind of back to December 29th. Christmas sounds cool, so I will go with Christmas."
Sweet, the sister of NASCAR Nationwide Series and Open Wheel driver Brad Sweet, posted an ultrasound image of the baby to her Twitter account this morning as well, with the caption, “Baby Larson due December 2014.”
Larson closed on the new house on June 2, joking that the home would soon “look like a Chuck E Cheese with even more TVs."
