Vroom, vroom, this mom and dad are rapidly building their beautiful family. NASCAR race car driver Jimmie Johnson, 37, and his wife Chandra welcomed their second daughter on September 6, it was reported on the daredevil’s Facebook page, to his 700,000-plus fans. Thrill-seeker Dad took one day off, and was back zooming around the racetrack the next night.
The couple chose to name their second baby girl Lydia Norriss Johnson. She is joined be elder sis Genevieve Marie, who is 3 years old. The name Lydia is Germanic in origin and means of the noble sort. Hm, could Danica Patrick have some competition creeping up on her?
As many a fan took notice of, the baby gal was born on the 6th of the month — just as Papa plans to make a go at his 6th championship at the Sprint Cup Series Federated Auto Parts 400. He’s got the advantage of a whole team of cheerleaders rooting him on at home. Go Daddy, Go!
