Race car driver Kevin Harvick's wife DeLana has a wish. And what is that? She wants to be the first person he kisses if he wins a race.
The wife of the American professional stock car racing driver has expressed a desire, or should we say ‘strong’ desire, to be the first person to be kissed by her husband after he wins his next race. Now don’t get that romantic feels because, DeLana is not just saying it. She is warning her husband. How? Let us tell you…
Well, the thing is, American football quarterback Peyton Manning planted a kiss on the cheek of “Papa” John Schnatter after he and his team Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50 over the Carolina Panthers. The quarterback kissed Schnatter, the American businessman and the founder, current CEO and spokesman for Papa John's International, Inc as Manning is the celebrity brand endorser of his pizza chain.
Everybody expected his wife Ashley Thompson to be the first person to get that special kiss from her husband. But instead, “PAPA” stole it.
After this incident, DeLana seemed to be quite alert and has already warned her dearest husband to plant that big kiss on her cheek instead of someone else (wink).
After Peyton Manning and Schnatter shared a friendly kiss after the game, Mrs. Harvick quickly took to the Twitter and tweeted a “threatening” message for husband.
She wrote: “@KevinHarvick if you ever win another championship and you kiss @jimmyjohns before you kiss me, you're gonna be in big phat trouble!”
Well! We all know, DeLana was half joking half serious. But Harvick will still surely get into a “big phat trouble” if he does not do what she said.
And after reading the message, Harvick will surely remember to kiss his better half if he wins another title before he plants it on somebody else. No matter who he kisses, we know one thing for sure, he loves his wife more than anybody.
Harvick and DeLana married each other on February 28, 2001 in Las Vegas, Nevada after shortly after his Sprint Cup Series debut. The couple met each other a year before their marriage at Michigan International Speedway. DeLana was working in public relations for fellow driver Randy LaJoie.
The much in love duo resides in Charlotte, North Carolina. They have a baby boy named Keelan.
Harvick and DeLana share a strong professional relation as well. His wife co-owns and works with KHI Management LLC, a Sports Management Agency. She also frequently appears at Harvick's pit box during Sprint Cup races.
The legend in the making, who has won several titles, has held the all-time record for wins as a Cup Series driver at Phoenix International Raceway with seven wins, four of them consecutively from 2013 to 2015. He has also won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship in 2014.
He has an estimated net worth of $70 million dollars.
