Keselowski's girlfriend is expecting a baby girl.
Brad Keselowski and girlfriend Paige White will have a new addition to their family.
Keselowski used his blog (BradKeselowski.com) to reveal the big news.
“The biggest announcement I have to make about the offseason actually has to do with Paige and me,” Keselowski said. “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.”
The 30-year-old 2012 Sprint Cup and 2010 Xfinity Series Champion drives the No. 2 Miller Ford for Team Penske. He posted a career-best six wins and five poles last season but finished fifth in the Cup point standings uder the new Chase for the Sprint Cup format.
Keselowski started his blog reflecting on NASCAR rules for 2015, jumped to little changes to his team – and then a big change for himself. And he asked for patience and understanding from the fans and media.
“Before I talk a little more about that, I do have one request of fans and the media regarding my daughter-to-be,” Keselowski said. “Some of you like me. Some of you dislike me. 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."
Keselowski and White began dating last year. She is a graduate of East Carolina University and comes from a racing background.
I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life, and Paige is a very large part of that.
“Getting back to Paige and our new family, I know that we’re not doing this in the traditional order of things," Keselowski said. "I will simply say this: I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life, and Paige is a very large part of that. She’s an amazing person. She’s soft-spoken, well-educated and smart. She’s beautiful, which never hurts.
"Most importantly, she understands who I am and where I’ve come from in ways that most people wouldn’t know or understand. Her family, which is extremely supportive and feels like an extension of my own, came from very humble beginnings, just like mine did. She’s seen the world from a lot of different perspectives that most people never get to see.
“We’re thrilled to be doing this together. The 2015 season is shaping up to be a great one, both on the track and off it.”
