Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 29 Budweiser Chevrolet, and his wife DeLana Harvick welcomed their first baby into the world on Sunday following Kevin's participation in the Coke Zero 400.

Their son, Keelan Paul Harvick, weighed in at 6.8 pounds and 19.5 inches. The Harvick's referred to their son as "Baby Otis" on Twitter and in public during the pregnancy.

Harvick stated, "Waiting on Keelan was the longest nine months of my entire life. But time literally stood still when I held my baby for the first time."

Harvick added, "I've accomplished a lot in my life that I am 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.
