Bernie Ecclestone, the billionaire former Formula 1 boss, is a father for the fourth time at the age of 89.
Ecclestone’s wife Fabiana Flosi, 44, gave birth yesterday to a boy whom the couple have named Ace. Ms Flosi said that the labour “was all so easy”. She added: “The birth was over after 25 minutes. I thank God.”
Ace, Ecclestone’s first son, is 31 years younger than his half-sister, Petra. Ecclestone’s eldest daughter, Deborah, 65, was born to his first wife Ivy Bamford. Petra and his second daughter, Tamara, 35, were born to his second wife, Slavica Radic, a Croatian model.
Ecclestone and Ms Flosi, a marketing director, married in 2012, after meeting at the FIA World Motor Sport Council. They started lockdown at Ecclestone’s farm in Sao Paulo, Brazil, before going to Switzerland. He confirmed the birth to Blick, a Swiss daily newspaper, saying: “We have a son named Ace. I am so proud.”
Earlier this summer, Ms Flosi said: “Like all parents we have only one wish: the child must be born healthy. Hopefully he will never express any interest in doing something in Formula 1!”
He expressed surprise that Hamilton, the champion British driver, had been upset over racism. Hamilton told The Times last week that he had faced racist abuse including being confronted by fans in blackface in 2008.
