Denny Hamlin and his girlfriend Jordan Fish welcomed their first child into the world on Sunday January 20th. Hamlin announced the birth of their baby girl by sending out a tweet with a picture earlier today. Hamlin said Taylor James Hamlin was born at 8:20 PM January 20th weighing 6 pounds, eight ounces and 20 inches in height. Hamlin said that Taylor and Jordan are doing well.
Hamlin only participated in one day of Daytona testing two weeks ago because of the potential birth of his daughter but Taylor didn’t arrive until this past weekend. Hamlin’s No.11 team had Michael McDowell in the car last week during the Charlotte test.
Hamlin and Joe Gibbs Racing are looking like early favorites to win the Sprint Cup. Hamlin and his team showed how strong they can be just before the Chase last season and Hamlin believes the No.11 team will be contending for the championship this season. Hamlin will be excited to share success with his new daughter this season and that will be a motivational factor for Hamlin. Baby Taylor should be in victory lane with her father soon if Hamlin can start out the season strongly and earn some early season victories.
