Carl Edwards and his wife, Kate, became parents for the second time as they welcomed baby boy Michael Edwards on Wednesday afternoon.
Michael weighed in at eight pounds, six ounces and is healthy, the proud papa said Friday at Darlington Raceway.
"He's doing great, so it's just a great week," Edwards said. "It was unreal. We had a lot of fun. (Daughter) Annie is really excited about her little brother. I don't think she quite understands what is going on, but we're all doing really well."
Annie, the couple's first child, is 14 months old. Edwards said his wife was "an amazing woman."
"She's a great mom and I hope she enjoys this Mother's Day," he said.
Edwards, who drives for Roush Fenway Racing, is currently the Sprint Cup Series points leader. He enters Darlington looking for his first victory at the track nicknamed "Too Tough To Tame" after finishing second there in 2008.
