Start your engines – there’s another Gordon on the way.
Jeff Gordon and wife Ingrid Vandebosch are expecting their second child in August, the NASCAR star announced on his Web site Thursday.
“Ingrid and I wanted to be the first to tell you … the exciting news that Ingrid is 12 weeks pregnant and expecting our second child,” the racer, 38, wrote. “We’re very excited and can’t wait to expand our family to four. Ella is also very excited and can’t stop talking about how much she’s looking forward to being a big sister.”
