COPY-Gordon's wife delivers in the clutch

Associated Press - June 20, 2007 3:33 PM ET

NEW YORK, N.Y. (AP) - Jeff Gordon won't have to miss a race for the birth of his daughter.

NASCAR's 4-time champion announced on his Web Site today that his wife, model Ingrid Vandebosch, gave birth to a girl and they've named her Ella Sofia Gordon.

Gordon had asked Mark Martin to be on standby this weekend in case he had to leave the race in Sonoma, California to return for the birth. He says he'll travel to the Golden State later this week and participate in all on-track activities at Infineon Raceway.

Gordon's baby was born two days after the wife of another sports icon, Tiger Woods, gave birth to daughter Sam Alexis Woods.
