NASCAR champion Brad Keselowski is about to see his life change. The 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup champion made the news public Wednesday that he will become a father. Keselowski made the announcement on his blog that he and his girlfriend of a year Paige White are expecting. “The biggest announcement I have to make about the offseason actually has to do with Paige and me. We’ve been together for a little while now, and we’ve been incredibly happy. And things are about to get even better because we’re having a baby girl together,” Keselowski wrote.
The Penske Racing driver has been at the center of a great deal of controversy especially last season. In a season that saw him score 6 wins and finish fifth in the standings Keselowski ruffled the feathers of his competitors on and off the track. This has made him a polarizing figure in the NASCAR garage among fans. In his blog however, Keselowski said he hopes to keep his daughter out the limelight.
“Some of you like me. Some of you dislike me,” he writes. “You all share your thoughts with me via social media, or in person at the tracks. I have no problem with any of that, good or bad. I’m a public figure, and that’s what I’ve signed up for. But the baby girl we’re having hasn’t signed up for any of that. So if you can keep the focus on me that would mean a lot to us.” MORE>>>
