Brad and Paige Keselowski chose an explosive way to reveal the gender of their second child.
In a video posted on Twitter, the couple shot off pink fireworks to announce they’re expecting another girl to join their family.
Their first daughter, Scarlett, was born May 19, 2015. Keselowski later detailed the health scare the family had with Scarlett a month after she was born. Keselowski stated that they had been told at one point that Scarlett could die. They took her to the Mayo Clinic and she was diagnosed with laryngomalacia, a congenital softening of the tissues of the larynx above the vocal cords.
Emergency surgery was performed and she recovered.
The day after the pregnancy reveal, Keselowski discussed how the difficulties with Scarlett “definitely weighs on you” as they prepare for another child.
“Obviously, my wife hasn’t been at the track the last few months,” Keselowski said. “That’s intentional because, one, the strain on her, (and) two we didn’t want a bunch of people asking her about it because of those things that can happen.
“Just trying to be as supportive as I can. The realistic part is she is doing most of the work. They say ‘we’re having a baby,’ it’s more she’s having the baby and I’m cheering. It’s still a great time and I’m grateful for the lesson I’ve had in my life.”
