Bernie said, “We’re fine … We’re in Brazil right now, so we have to wait a bit and see if this little one is going to happen in Brazil or England. “

The billionaire has three adult daughters, Deborah, Tamara and Petra, as well as grandchildren, from two previous marriages.

“Everyone is very happy. They are all happy, “he said of the family’s response.

Asked what kind of father he was going to be, he replied, “We don’t know, probably better than before, probably a little more relaxed! “

On the threat of the deadly coronavirus to his pregnant wife, he told MailOnline, “You hope it doesn’t happen, but these things happen so you just face it, what else can you do?”

“Hopefully the people who take care of everything didn’t catch anything themselves.

Mr. Ecclestone – nicknamed “F1 Supremo” – is a former general manager of the Formula 1 group, which manages Formula 1 and partly owns Delta Topco

“I’m not too sure that we will ever get rid of this bloody nonsense, more than the flu that occurs every year.

“It’s just that at the moment it’s a little more dangerous than what we were used to but when it calms down I think the world will have changed a lot.

“People and businesses will have changed their behavior. People in general will have different priorities, different values. It will wake people up a bit.

“We hope to see a better world. “

Now that he’s not related to working in Formula 1, he has had more time to get used to the idea of ​​having a baby in his life.

He said, “There’s nothing unusual, is there? I haven’t had a job in a while so I had a lot of time to train! Yes, she (his wife) is delighted. We don’t know what it is!

“I’m very happy and really happy for my wife, she’s been looking forward to this happening for a few years, so I’m glad she will have someone after I leave.

“It’s funny, I don’t see dramas, I have grandchildren and I can’t wait to have another baby. “

The businessman, who is currently on his farm near Sao Paulo, confirmed yesterday to German television channel Blick that he and his 44-year-old wife are expecting a child.

He said, ‘Yes, it is due in the summer. I hope he learns to play backgammon soon!

Bernie’s eldest child, Deborah, 65, was born to his first wife Ivy Bamford before he had Tamara and Petra worlds with his second wife Slavica Radic.

The parents-to-be met through the World Motor Sport Council – where she regularly attended meetings.

They got to know each other professionally for a few years before a mutual friend invited Flosi to take a cruise in Croatia with Bernie in 2009.

Flosi said: “Like all parents, we have only one wish: the child should be born healthy. Hopefully he will never express his intention to do anything with Formula 1. “

At the birth of the child, Bernie could be classified as one of the 10 oldest known fathers of all time.

The American James Smith is said to be the oldest father ever recorded, along with his 38-year-old wife Anna who gave birth to twins in 1949 when he claimed to be 101 years old.

Fertility in men declines considerably with age, so the chances of a man around 90 being a father are low.

Some surnames have also had children up to old age – although they are not quite 89 years old.

Charlie Chaplin had a 73-year-old child, while Mick Jagger fathered his eighth child in 2016 with his 29-year-old girlfriend, when he was also 73 years old.

Bernie then spoke about the current coronavirus pandemic and said he “just wanted everything to be fine with Fabiana” if the isolation continued.

He said, “Fortunately, the farm never runs out of work. Fabiana also runs her own coffee plantation. “

Bernie, nicknamed “F1 Supremo”, is a former CEO of the Formula 1 Group, which manages Formula 1 and partly owns Delta Topco.

He has amassed an estimated fortune of 2.5 billion pounds sterling throughout his Formula 1 work.

Tamara, a mother of one, has also appeared on a series of reality shows in the UK.

The eccentric tycoon competed in two Grand Prix races as a driver himself in 1958, but failed to qualify for any of them.

He later became driver manager Stuart Lewis-Evans and Jochen Rindt before buying the Brabham team in 1972, which he then managed for 15 years.

He married his first wife, Ivy Bamford, when he was 21 in 1952. The couple had a daughter, Deborah, before divorcing in the 1960s.

Bernie then had a 17-year relationship with Tuana Tan, born in Singapore, before meeting the Croatian model Slavica Radic in September 1982 in the stands of the Italian circuit of Monza.

The 28-year-old couple married in 1985 and later had daughters Tamara and Petra – both of whom had careers in fashion.

Tamara, a mother of one, has also appeared on a series of reality shows in the UK.

She appeared on her own show, Tamara Ecclestone: Billion $$$ Girl, on Channel 5 in 2011 and on ITVBE’s Tamara’s World in 2017.

Bernie and Mrs. Radic divorced in 2009 and he married his wife, who is 45 years younger, three years later.
