Kernersville, NC -- Kevin and DeLana Harvick welcomed son Keelan Paul Harvick (pronounced Keylan) Sunday, July 8th, 2012.
According to a news release from Kevin Harvick, Inc, Keelan weighed in at 6.8 lbs. and 19.5 INCHES. Throughout the pregnancy, the Harvicks had jokingly referred to their son as "Baby Otis" on Twitter and in public.
"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.
Harvick finished 23rd in Saturday night's Cup Race in Daytona.
