The race car driver continued, “Amy had a pretty good pregnancy. She said it felt like a long one only because of the COVID and all that. But we’re not gonna complain because we got a healthy baby girl.”

And for those wondering, Dale said their baby looks a lot like her dad.

“With Nicole… I look at her and I see so much of myself,” Earnhardt Jr. shared. “Its like looking at a mirror when I look at her. It’s crazy.”

“Now that may change in 24 hours but I mean as soon as I saw her I thought, ‘Oh my God, she is a baby me. It’s like looking at my baby self,'” he added.

The NASCAR driver and Amy tied the knot in 2016 and also have a 2-year-old daughter named Isla Rose.
