NASCAR champ Jeff Gordon no doubt got a rush when he took home his latest prize: son Leo Benjamin, who was born Aug. 9. Now, the proud pop is showing off the first photos of his baby boy on his website.
Gordon, 39, released four pics of adorable Leo - three black-and-white shots showing close-ups of the newborn's face, lips and feet, and one color shot of Leo with his big sis Ella, 3.
"We're happy to share some of our most cherished memories with you," the racing star and actress/model wife Ingrid Vandebosch, 40, said in a joint statement. "We hope you enjoy them!"
It was only last February that the couple announced the good news that they were expecting. "We're very excited and can't wait to expand our family to four," Gordon said on his site, noting that their daughter was especially thrilled about the new arrival. "Ella is also very excited and can't stop talking about how much she's looking forward to being a big sister."
