Helio Castroneves is getting all sorts of good news this year.Â Last spring, the Dancing With The Stars champion was acquitted on charges of conspiracy and tax evasion.Â Now, he has some exciting news to share from his family life: he and his girlfriend are expecting their first child this January!
Helio, three-time Indy 500 champion, confirmed to IndyStar.com last week that he and girlfriend Adriana Henao are expecting a baby girl.Â He said that they were initially considering naming her Indy, but realized that would be a bit ridiculous.Â The couple has decided to name their bundle of joy, Mikaella.
Although the couple has no immediate plans to wed, they were very happy with the news. “This year started very difficult, the middle was kind of a ‘Wow!’ and now this,” he continued. “This is a great ending for the book.”
