INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Tony Stewart took to social media on Monday to express his excitement that he and Leah Pruett, an American semi-retired drag racer, are expecting a baby boy.

Stewart wrote in a Facebook post: “I’m so excited to start a family with this incredibly beautiful love of my life Leah Pruett. Can’t wait to meet this little guy. This is the ultimate 🏆

The pair announced the pregnancy on Monday.

In December, Pruett said she would step away from the NHRA drag racing series this year to focus on starting a family with Stewart.

Pruett’s NASCAR Hall of Famer husband replaced her in the Top Fuel dragster that she drove to a career-best third-place finish in the NHRA standings last year.

Pruett and Stewart married just over two years ago.

The couple is expected to welcome their newborn in November.
