Bernie Ecclestone is a dad again - 65 years after his first child was born

Bernie Ecclestone has become a dad again at the age of 89 - after his wife gave birth to the billionaire's first son.

The former Formula One boss told Blick magazine: "We have a son named Ace. I am so proud."

And his wife Fabiana Flosi, 44, told the Swiss newspaper it was "all so easy", adding: "The birth was over after 25 minutes. I thank god."

Ecclestone already has three daughters with his previous partners.

His eldest, Deborah, 65, was born to his first wife Ivy Bamford before he had socialites Tamara, 35, and Petra, 31, with his second wife Slavica Radic.

Ecclestone announced the pregnancy back in April and told the PA news agency: "I don't see there's any difference between being 89 and 29.

"You've got the same problems I suppose. It's alright."

Asked what kind of father he was going to be to his first son, he said: "We don't know, probably better than before, probably a bit more relaxed!"

Flosi, who got engaged to Ecclestone when she was 35 after meeting him while working for the Brazilian Grand Prix, has said she hopes the baby has no interest in Formula One.
