Ryan Newman announced Friday during a Chevrolet question-and-answer session with fans that he and wife Krissie are expecting their first child.
When reporters asked him about it on Saturday, he had a little fun before confirming the news.
Here's what happened (reporters' questions in bold):
So you're going to be a dad, apparently?
That's what they're saying. I don't know.
You don't know?
You're always the last to know.
I guess, yeah.
Well it was said on the Chevy stage.
Somebody asked me a question. I answered the question.
So are you excited about what they said?
Yeah. I am.
What was the question and the answer?
What question? What answer?
The question about the baby and the answer you gave.
What baby? Hornish's? Biffle's?
Carl's, I don't know.
Carl's going to have more than a baby if he keeps it up.
So you don't want to talk about it yet?
Talk about what?
The potential question on stage?
There was no potential question. There was a question.
Well, if you're confused, I don't want you to write about it.
Are you going to be a dad?
Yeah, that's true.
Congratulations. Have you come up with a name yet?
A name? They already changed it from the Allstate 400 to the Brickyard 400.
