Kasey Kahne has joined the growing fraternity of Sprint Cup Series drivers who are fathers.

The Hendrick Motorsports driver tweeted the good news on Tuesday morning, after he and girlfriend Sam Sheets welcomed a baby boy into the world.

From Kahne's Twitter post, all seems to be going well so far.
