Morgan and I welcomed a little boy to our family this morning. We named him Cotten Cable – after his maternal grandmothers, Claudia Cotten Overton and Helen Cable Owens. Mom and baby are both doing great! pic.twitter.com/NuVDM0y6yt

Petty is the son of seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Richard Petty and the grandson of Lee Petty.
This is the fifth child for Petty. He and Morgan married in December 2015. Petty has another son with Morgan and three children from a previous marriage — daughter Montgomery and sons Austin and Adam. Adam, a fourth-generation racer, passed away after a crash at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in 2000.
