Knoxville-native NASCAR driver Trevor Bayne and his wife, Ashton Bayne, are new parents.

Ashton Bayne posted a photo of her newborn daughter, Elizabeth Kate Bayne, today on Instragram, along with the declaration, “Elizabeth Kate, we are head over heels for you, baby girl!” The new mom included “Ellie” in a hashtag, which will be their daughter’s nickname.

She did not post other information such as the baby’s birth time/day, weight or length.

The Baynes, who married in 2013, announced they were expected this past June.

Trevor Bayne is the No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing driver competing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. The 24-year-old driver won the 2011 Daytona 500 when he was only 20 years plus one day old – the youngest driver to ever win the race at that time.
