He was the face of Formula One throughout the world, but now, former Formula One chief, Bernie Ecclestone, is preparing for a new ‘addition’ to his high portfolio as he has announced that he is due to be a father again, at the age of 89.


The former F1 chief, who managed several teams before becoming head of the sport itself has announced that his third wife, Fabiana Flosi, is pregnant with what would be his fourth child – which is expected to be his first son.


The former motor racing driver has three daughters from his previous two marriages – Deborah, 65, from first wife Ivy Bamford , with Tamar, 35 and Petra, 31 from second wife, the Croatian model Slavica Radic.


He also has five grandchildren.


Ecclestone and 44-year-old Marketing Director, Fiana – both of whom who are currently in isolation at their farm in Sao Paolo, in her native Brazil - got married in 2012.


A delighted Bernie said: “I just want them (the baby and Fabiana) to be healthy.


“With her running her own coffee plantation I just want everything to be good”.


“Hopefully he doesn’t have any interest on Formula One”, Fabiana added.
