A huge congratulations are in order for the Busch’s.
NASCAR driver Kyle Busch and his wife, Samantha, welcomed a beautiful baby girl yesterday.
Lennix Key Busch came into the world at 20 inches, weighing a healthy 6.1 oz. Samantha posted a few newborn photos on her Instagram page, saying how excited and overjoyed they are with the birth of their daughter:
“Lennix Key Busch. May 10, 2022, 5:12 am, 6.1 oz 20 in. We’re beyond overjoyed that God has blessed us with our beautiful girl.
Our tiny little peanut has a head full of crazy hair and a big brother waiting at home who can’t wait to meet her!
Thank you everyone who has followed our journey and prayed along side of us. Our hearts are bursting with happiness.”
The couple has been extremely open with their struggle to conceive, as they went through an extensive IVF process with their firstborn, Brexton, who was born in 2015.
When they started trying for a second, a few years after Brexton was born, they continued to struggle to get pregnant with IVF and experienced heartbreaking loss with a miscarriage and two unsuccessful IVF attempts (one being in November of 2020).
They had Lennix via a surrogate, and started a foundation called Bundle of Joy in order to help other couples struggling with infertility afford treatments they otherwise wouldn’t have access to.

Kyle Busch Makes 85-Year Old Fan’s Bucket List Wish Come True
It all started when Kim Wherley posted on Facebook to try to get an autograph from Kyle for her mother at an upcoming race.
According to Kim, “GiGi” is a huge NASCAR fan. Even her grandkids know that they won’t get to watch cartoons on Sunday afternoons, because that’s when the NASCAR race is on.
Kim had gotten GiGi tickets to the Mother’s Day race at Darlington in 2020, but of course the race ended up having to be run without fans in the stands due to COVID.
So Gigi’s still never been able to see a race in person.
She’s also been facing some health issues, having been diagnosed with a rare blood cancer and also recovering from a total shoulder replacement.
But Kim says that going to a NASCAR race is the only thing left on GiGi’s bucket list, and she wanted to make it happen. So Kim planned on getting her mother tickets to the race at Richmond Raceway this August, and asked for help finding a way to get an autograph from Kyle while GiGi was at the track.
Well through the power of social media, Kim’s post made it to Kyle, who asked for help tracking the daughter down so they could get Gigi to the race:
And when Kyle was finally able to connect with Kim and GiGi, he hooked them up with something a lot better than just an autograph.
Not only is GiGi going to get to go to the race at Richmond, but Kyle and Toyota hooked her up with a suite, pit passes, and she’s even going to get to meet her favorite driver before the race.
Kyle shared the video of himself breaking the news to GiGi, and you might want to get the Kleenex handy for this one:
And that Kyle Busch? Maybe he ain’t so bad after all.
I mean, even Chase Elliott’s hometown bar is a Kyle Busch fan now after this one.
