The “Life In The Fast Lane” crew is about to get a little bigger now that Austin and Whitney Dillon have revealed they’re expecting their second child together.
The duo previously welcomed their son, Ace, in June 2020. On Thursday, Whitney took to Instagram to share an image of her, their son, and her NASCAR driver husband absolutely beaming as they hold up an ultrasound revealing the good news.
“Dillon party of FOUR,” she wrote. “Thank you Jesus for this journey.”
It didn’t take long before Mariel and Paul Swan jumped in and congratulated their best friends and co-stars of “Austin Dillon’s Life In The Fast Lane" on the wonderful news.
“Aggghhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS Yalllll !!!!!!! Soooo freaking excited to have another little one to love on!!!!!!” Mariel wrote.
“So excited for you guys, Love you all! The Squad keeps growing!” Paul added.
Family growth was a big portion of the first season of “Life In The Fast Lane” because it was filmed mere weeks before Mariel and Paul welcomed their first child, Bella Victoria Swan. The series captured all the prep work that went into having a child before the little bundle of joy came to the world in May 2022. The duo has been elated parents ever since.
“I mean, it's definitely shown that our lives don't really matter anymore,” Paul told USA Insider at the time. “Everything is about baby Bella, and we love it. Like, I wouldn't have it any other way. I think we're both at a stage in our lives where we're ready to be parents, we were ready, we're excited about it and it's been a joy.”
He added: “I mean, there's not been a ton of sleep, but I feel like we've managed it pretty well and we help each other out. We make a really solid team. So, I think that's a big thing. If you got a wife and a husband that can be a team.”
For the Dillons, the news comes at an exciting time for his career. Austin is the on-the-track face of Richard Childress Racing, but has also been promoted to general manager of the Carolina Cowboys Professional Bull Riding (PBR) team. While his priorities are still on the NASCAR track, he’s clearly dipping his toe in other waters to try his hand at management. The question now is how much he’ll be able to juggle as a father of two.
