Finally after months of waiting to know the sex, proud daddy to be Scott tweeted the news to the world saying,
@scottspeed: It's a girl!!!Amanda, who has a son Rex from a previous relationship, said Monday, "Rex is extremely excited. He wants a sister though, he doesn't want a brother. And Scott wants a boy.... I'm good with either one.”
Amanda went on to say, "If it's a girl that'll be great, but if it's a boy I'm gonna have to hope for the next one to be a girl." Eluding to the fact that there may be more little ones in their future.
The former Red Bull Racing driver and his wife first shared the news of the pregnancy on February 9, 2011 when Scott tweeted,
"Look what we made!!!! HE! Stress the word HE.. Lol is only .33cm long but he growin ;) http://plixi.com/p/75956718 ".It was later comfirmed by wife Amanda who said,
''Well I guess @scottspeed put the word out... Yes, I am pregnant!!!! We r very excited!!!!!!!18 weeks into the pregnancy the couple is excited for the addition to the family, though Amanda did share that the worst part is not being able to "work out like I'm Rocky" and that some of her favorite foods aren't so appetizing anymore.
