Tim Slade will have a busy start to 2023, with the 37-year-old expecting his second child with fiancée Dani Byrnes.

The Gold Coast-based couple revealed the happy news on Tuesday, posting a photo to their social accounts.

The photo shows their one-year-old son Jordy holding a photo of an ultrasound.

The baby, due in January 2023, will be the couple's second child.

“A baby brother or sister is on the way!” Slade and Byrnes captioned the announcement.

“Slade baby due Jan 2023.”

Professional model and business owner Byrnes shared her excitement, confirming she is 14 weeks pregnant.  

The couple became engaged in 2018, after eight years of dating.

The Blanchard Racing Team driver and Byrnes welcomed their first son Jordy in October 2020.

Baby Jordy shared his first Supercars experience last July, attending the NTI Townsville 500.

It comes after James Courtney announced the expected arrival of his first child with fiancée Tegan Woodford in May.

Slade’s full-time contemporaries Mark Winterbottom, David Reynolds, Lee Holdsworth, Chris Pither and Jamie Whincup are all fathers.

The Ford driver currently sits tenth overall, recording finishes of 23rd, 16th, and 11th at the OTR SuperSprint.

Slade will resume his 2022 campaign at the Penrite Oil Sandown SuperSprint later this month.
