Formula 1 mogul Bernie Ecclestone is on track to become a father again at 89, he revealed on Friday.
The baby boy’s big sister will be 65. The car-racing billionaire told Britain’s PA Media that his Brazilian wife, Fabiana Flosi, 44, is expecting a son this summer. He said he’s not worried about having a newborn at such an advanced age.
“I don’t see there’s any difference between being 89 and 29,” he told PA, according to CNN. “You’ve got the same problems, I suppose. It’s all right.”
It’s Ecclestone’s first son — and his first child with Flosi, whom he married in 2012 — but he has three daughters from previous marriages: Petra, 31, Tamara, 35, and Deborah, 64. (Petra memorably bought Candy Spelling’s mansion when she was 22. Last year, at 30, she sold it for $120 million — the most expensive home in Los Angeles.)
Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood shocked the world when he became a father again at the age of 69 in 2016, but Ecclestone leaves him in the dust in the aged-dad stakes. However, Ecclestone’s a mere child compared to James E. Smith, the American minister who reportedly became the world’s oldest new father at 102 in 1951.
