Is that a gorgeous pair or what?

NASCAR fans will recall that Dale Earnhardt Jr. and wife Amy welcomed their baby girl earlier this year on April 30, and ever since then, the two seem to have been literally over the moon over their little beauty.

But as proud as Earnhardt Jr. is of his baby daughter, he also seems just as proud of his wife.

“It’s instinctual,” he said during a podcast that aired shortly after Isla’s birth. “That’s the way she’s been. Baby comes out, she knows what to do, she’s doing it. She’s not crying, not emotional. She’s just doing her mother thing. I’m just a basket of nerves and crying.”

And yes, Isla is already showing some signs of that undeniable spirit of her dearly departed grandfather Dale Earnhardt, who passed away on the last lap of the 2001 Daytona 500
“She smirks the ‘Earnhardt smirk’ some, where she does it off to the side,” he proudly shared in the podcast. “… I like to tell Amy that’s the Earnhardt in her coming out, because that’s how Daddy always smiled.”
