Kyle Larson’s girlfriend Katelyn Sweet just had their baby boy Owen Miyata Larson on December 23 of 2014. Kyle posted a picture on Twitter right after it happened. I couldn’t believe how far down I had to scroll from the time I’m writing this (February 15) to the time they had the kid (December 23). There must have been a hundred tweets in that span of time. Kyle Larson is a tweeting machine!
Fox Sports had mentioned online that Larson just bought a sprawling new house with Katelyn, and they apparently have eight televisions installed in it. Because your human eyes are meant to be glued to a screen of some kind if they’re not taking in a race track at 180 miles per hour. Kyle Larson’s girlfriend Katelyn Sweet describes herself as a cheerleader for Kyle and “Owen’s Mommy.” Owen seems to have his eyes closed in every shot she’s put up of him on Twitter. He only opens them for races, maybe. Katelyn put up a pretty funny picture of Kyle and their cat sitting on a carpet waiting for furniture to be delivered to their new house. Having an empty mansion when you first move in must be a cool feeling, but the actual moving around of one’s belongings is a lot of work. Katelyn also mentioned the moving guy tracked mud into the house. Shame on you, moving guy!
The couple seem to have things pretty squarely figured out. They’re both really young (Kyle was born in 1992) and Larson seems to be doing well in NASCAR. Larson recently won the Rolex24 race with his son in attendance. That obviously means more for Kyle Larson’s girlfriend Katelyn and him than it does for Owen, but it’s a new and exciting feeling to be able to bring their son to a race and say he witnessed his dad win. Larson’s mom recorded every day of his life on a calendar until he was thirteen. I wonder if Katelyn will do the same?
