His baby girl is officially a week old, but this famous racing star and his wife have yet to share pictures of their new bundle of joy with anyone outside of their family – and he finally explains why.
She’s finally here! @DaleJr and I are officially parents to a beautiful baby girl, Isla Rose Earnhardt. It feels like a dream. The best dream ever. ?

In just a matter of days, folks were begging the new parents for pictures of their new baby girl – but for two very active and popular celebrities on social media, they had been more silent than ever before.
When you feed, change her diaper (twice) and put her down to sleep for the first time on your own so momma can rest… pic.twitter.com/So5n7PqOeX

Sharing a variety of other updates about life as a new father and how it’s all going for him, Dale Jr. has been the one giving fans the good news – but also the one fielding a growing demand for photos of baby Isla Rose.
In his weekly podcast, The Dale Jr. Download, he explains that Amy’s photographer friend was on hand when she went into labor and came along to document the whole birthing session and their first moments as new parents.
While he likely has plenty of photos of him and little Isla, he finally responded to a fan and explained why they haven’t shared any pictures.
Let's see pics of Isla Rose?

In a tweet response to yet another request for photos of their brand new baby, Dale Jr. laid down the law in a very respectful and polite way, expressing that eventually he and Amy will choose to share some photos.
Will do. Promise. Still settling in here. First time parents. Priorities. https://t.co/B8vBn0tl8X

Like many celebrities, they like to keep a certain amount of their life private and be afforded the option to live like normal people without sharing all parts with the public.
What do you think of his decision? Let us know in the comments.
