Bubba Wallace is shifting gears and preparing for a new course in life: parenthood.

The NASCAR driver and his wife Amanda Wallace announced they're expecting their first baby.

The news comes a little more than a year after Bubba and Amanda, both 30, tied the knot in a New Year's Eve wedding.

"Feeling on top of the world after our first year of marriage!" the artist wrote on Instagram Dec. 31. "Man, I wish we could go back and relive the most epic night our lives. So excited for many more years of marriage with the love of my life, @bubbawallace."

The pair got engaged during a hike through Latourell Falls Trailhead State Park in Oregon in 2021. 

"I said YES!!" Amanda wrote on Instagram at the time alongside pictures of the proposal. "This man pulled off the greatest surprise and we are so excited to get MARRIED!!!!"

In fact, they've been cruising through life together since 2016—when they decided to change lanes from being just friends to entering a romance.

"8 years ago we were just friends and I was stubborn..." Amanda wrote on Instagram in 2017. "1 year ago we thought it would be a good idea to date... sure glad I stopped being stubborn."

I feel like within our relationship, we really do value the dreams and the successes and the ambitions of the other person. Because of that, we're able to have a really nice balance because we both do lead such busy lives. Our love for each other comes first, and we show that through the support that we have." —Olivia, girlfriend to San Francisco 49ers running back Christian

Isaac Rochell & Allison Kuch

"I've been with my husband for over eight years now and I think one thing I love about him is that he doesn't let the NFL define him. I think that he is so much more off the field. While he does love football that much, he is a caring husband. He's a caring dog dad. He's currently outside building something in our garage. He likes to play with power tools and all of that. My husband is my best friend and I'm so grateful for his support." —Allison, wife to defensive end Isaac

He is a truly selfless person, which shows through how actively he participates in running our CT3 Foundation.

What a guy." —Mary, wife to Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Chris

Justin & Kourtney Turner

"I admire Justin so much for his patience and ability to be completely present in the moment. He could be at an event, helping someone at a baseball clinic, spending time with a patient at the hospital and have a million other things going on but if you are with him, he will feel like the only person in the room." —Kourtney, wife to Toronto Blue Jays player Justin

Taylor Fritz & Morgan Riddle

He sets goals and he has a plan to achieve them. I admire his ability to not let other people's opinions about him affect his efforts to succeed. Lastly, I admire his compassion towards people. He truly is the best human I am blessed to know, and that I get to live life with." —Brittany, wife to NASCAR driver of the No. 22 Ford for Team Penske Joey

Kyle & Kristin Juszczyk

"There is no one that inspires me more to go after my dreams than him. Seeing him wake up every day with a smile on his face because he gets to call football 'work' is incredibly motivating. I have always admired his dedication and commitment to his craft. From pushing his body to the limit, to growing his own produce at home, every hour of his day is focused on bettering himself. Kyle is the most honorable, humble, loyal and genuine man I have ever met. I am incredibly lucky to call him my husband." —Kristin, wife to San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle

Jonathan Owens & Simone Biles

"I knew he was the one when I first met his mom. She has a little bit of a disability with her walking, she's gotten a lot stronger, but how he treated his mother and how he treats women, I was like, 'Wow.' Almost weekly he brings me flowers. It's kind of cliché but it's just so cute because, after his practices from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., he still takes the time to put a smile on my face." —Simone, Olympic gymnast and wife to football player Jonathan
