"Waiting on Keelan was the longest nine months of my entire life," Kevin Harvick said. "But time literally stood still when I held our baby for the first time. I've accomplished a lot in my life that I'm proud of, but those moments don't hold a candle to becoming a father and seeing that little face looking up at you. DeLana and I are just amazed by how special and rewarding this is."

Mother and baby are doing well.

Update: Kevin Harvick has shared that his son already has a Twitter account. Keelan was born on July 8, and his parents have been protecting his online identity before he can sit up. In addition to creating a separate Twitter account for Keelan, Kevin and DeLana Harvick have purchased domain names and set up a Facebook page.

@KeelanHarvick already has 5,000 followers and has not yet made a single tweet.
