Kevin and DeLana Harvick welcomed their son earlier today. Keelan Paul (pronounced Keylan) weighed 6.8 lbs and was 19.5 inches. DeLana and Keelan are doing well.
“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.”
For the last several months, Kevin and DeLana have referred to their son jokingly as “Baby Otis.” DeLana was in Daytona this weekend for the race, but left early yesterday and returned home to North Carolina. Driver Kenny Wallace was on stand by in case Harvick had to leave the race to return as well.
Congratulations to the Harvicks! I know they will be great parents!
