Dale Earnhardt Jr. & his wife Amy aren’t even expecting yet, but they apparently have babies on the brain! After all, the NASCAR star revealed that he ALREADY knows exactly what he wants to name their future child — hmm, maybe a baby Earnhardt is closer than we think? Find out if there’ll be a Dale III here.
Apparently the tradition of keeping the name Dale in the family ends with Dale Earnhardt Jr., 42! And while the NASCAR driver and his wife Amy Reimann, 34, aren’t even pregnant yet, one thing they do know for sure is that they’ll never have a third Dale in the fam. But on the bright side, they DO already have a name picked out!
“No no,” Dale firmly told TMZ when asked if he and Amy will name their eventual baby after him and his dad. “We already have a name but I’m not going to tell you what it is.” Oh come on, Dale — not even a hint? But who knows, maybe we’ll find out sooner than we think. After all, him and Amy may already be trying for their first child together — I mean, clearly they’ve thought about babies!
But before we get ahead of ourselves, Dale and Amy did only tie the knot on New Year’s Eve, which means they’ve officially been a married couple for less than two months. So we also wouldn’t be surprised if they decided to hold off on kids for a little while longer. The adorable pair said their “I dos” at Childress Vineyards in North Carolina, which is a wine estate belonging to former NASCAR driver Richard Childress.
Back in July, Dale was experiencing, “concussion-type symptoms,” according to ESPN, which unfortunately meant he had to miss a few races over the summer.“When I was sick, I just wanted to get well – I didn’t worry about racing at all,” Dale revealed to For The Win on Feb. 21.
“I didn’t care about racing the least little bit. I didn’t have any desire to return. I just had desire to get well and get back to being myself and feeling like a normal person, and then I would think about racing after all that happened.” Luckily Dale is feeling much better now and is ready to take on the 2017 season! And who knows, maybe fatherhood will soon follow suit!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — do you think Dale and Amy are planning to have a baby soon? Are you surprised they don’t want to have a Dale III?
