CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Dale Earnhardt Jr. is going to be rather busy in retirement. NASCAR's most popular driver announced Monday his wife is expecting the couple's first child.

Earnhardt posted a picture of pink pair of baby girl Converse on Instagram to announce he and wife Amy are having a daughter. He did not reveal a due date.

Earnhardt has five races left before he retires from his final full-time season in NASCAR. He has already accepted a job with the NBC Sports broadcast team for next season.

Earnhardt was married on Dec. 31 after he recovered from concussion symptoms.
