Bernie Ecclestone has become a father for a fourth time – at the age of 89.

He announced the news to Blick, saying: “We have a son named Ace. I am so proud.”

Wife Fabiana Flosi, 44, added: “It was all so easy. The birth was over after 25 minutes. I thank God.”

The former Formula One boss and his wife Fabiana revealed they were expecting in April.

Reports about the pregnancy emerged in the German press.

Like all parents we have one wish: the child must be born healthy.
