Fans of the racing family congratulated Kyle in response to the photo he shared. One fan, Pamala Kiser, congratulated the family and commented that Overton was a handsome boy.

Another fan, Marti Humphrey, loved Kyle's choice for his son's name and said that Owen was a beautiful baby. Netizen Janet Webb said that there is no 'correct' age to be a parent and congratulated Kyle and Morgan.
