Brad Keselowski’s girlfriend, Paige White, is getting ready for something other than the NASCAR season. She’s pregnant with the couple’s first child.
The North Carolina native grew up around driving, and now will have a child that does the same.
Here’s what you need to know about her:
1. White was Seen With Keselowski in March, 2014
White tweeted pictures with Keselowski from victory lane in March of 2014. The pictures came after Keselowski swept the weekend at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Prior to the pictures with White, according to Sporting News, Keselowski said he wanted to date a celebrity and admitted to having a crush on actress Jennifer Love-Hewitt.
I’ve always wanted to date a celebrity. I’m just throwing that out there. I think that would be cool.
2. White is Expecting the Couple’s First Child
White and Keselowski announced they are expecting their first child, a girl.
Keselowski took to his blog to address having a baby before marriage and ask the media to keep their focus on him.
I know that we’re not doing this in the traditional order of things. I will simply say this: I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life, and Paige is a very large part of that. She’s an amazing person. She’s soft-spoken, well-educated and smart. She’s beautiful, which never hurts. Most importantly, she understands who I am and where I’ve come from in ways that most people wouldn’t know or understand. Her family, which is extremely supportive and feels like an extension of my own, came from very humble beginnings, just like mine did. She’s seen the world from a lot of different perspectives that most people never get to see. … I do have one request of fans and the media regarding my daughter-to-be. Some of you like me. Some of you dislike me. You all share your thoughts with me via social media, or in person at the tracks. I have no problem with any of that, good or bad. 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.
3. White Graduated from East Carolina University
According to Fab Wags, White graduated from East Carolina University with a degree in Psychology. The North Carolina native is a fan or ECU sports and frequently tweets her support.

5. White’s Father is Also a Logger
