Danica Patrick revealed she is the aunt of a baby girl, Reese, who was born in January to her younger sister, Brooke.
Speaking during her scheduled media availability on July 26 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Danica Patrick admitted she just can’t resist digging into her pocketbook when it comes to the clothing needs of her new niece.
“Reese is really cute – my sister’s little girl,” Danica Patrick said.
“She was here today and she was dressed in one of the … expensive gifts, in one of those expensive outfits that I found for her downtown Chicago, and she looked very cute. But I do my best, yes. I try.
“I also try and take care of my sister and my parents and everybody else, too, but it’s impossible when you have a little niece, to be able to walk by a little girls’ clothing [store], and not go, <<Oh, my God. Look at that; I have to buy it>>. So I do.”
She also talked about the occasional diaper change.
“Do I change diapers? Heck yeah,” Danica Patrick said.
“Yeah, I do. I don’t mind. I was [recently] changing a diaper, and I had a new one ready to go, and all of a sudden I looked down, and I’m like, <<Gosh, girl, you were sweating, weren’t you?>> And I’m like, <<No, you peed again>>. So then I went for another diaper.”
She added: “At least it wasn’t a boy, right? That would have been in my face.”
Danica Patrick is going strong into a second year in a relationship with fellow Sprint Cup driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
