Brad Keselowski to join growing list of NASCAR driver dads

   Brad Keselowski, the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion, announced in his blog on Wednesday that he and his girlfriend, Paige White, are expecting their first child, a girl.

   Keselowski, 30, is the latest NASCAR driver to become a father. Cup driver Kyle Busch and his wife, Samantha, are expecting a baby boy in May. Driver Kyle Larson and his girlfriend, Katelyn Sweet, welcomed a son, Owen, in December.

   In his blog, Keselowski asked that fans and media respect the privacy of his family.

   "I’m a public figure, and that’s what I’ve signed up for. But the baby girl we’re having hasn’t signed up for any of that. So if you can keep the focus on me, that would mean a lot to us," he wrote.
