Well, he’s conquered Dancing With The Stars and the Indy 500 - surely he’ll have no problems raising his new baby girl. Helio Castroneves and girlfriend Adriana Henao welcomed their first child, Mikaella, into the world yesterday. Keep reading for more details…

After being acquitted for tax evasion last spring and then winning the Indy 500 again, Helio has had quite the year. But nothing can quite prepare someone for the birth of their first child.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Mikaella was born in Atlanta at 4:15 p.m., which was a week before her January 6th due date. She weighed in at 7 pounds, 3 ounces and was 19 inches long. Helio posted this picture via his Twitter account saying, “Mikaella was born!!!!” Well, at least the couple didn’t go with their first name choice. “We thought about calling her ‘Indy,’ but we thought that might be a little too much.”

Um, you thought right.
