Former Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone is going to be become a father for the fourth time, this time with fourth wife Fabiana Flosi, according to Blick.

It will be the first son for the billionaire, who will turn 90 in October, who already has three other children from previous marriages - 65-year-old Deborah, with his first wife Ivy Bamford, as well as 35-year-old Tamara and 31-year-old Petra with his second wife Slavica Radic.

Eccelstone has been married to the Brazilian marketing director since 2012, getting wed at his ski chalet in Switzerland. She is 45 years younger than the businessman.

"It is due in the summer," he told the paper. "Hopefully he'll learn to play backgammon soon."

"Like all parents we have only one wish: the child must be born healthy," Flosi added, before cracking a bit of a joke at her husband's expense. "Hopefully he will never express any interest in doing something in Formula 1."

Ecclestone himself continued the humorous banter. "After my Formula 1 time, we've had plenty of time to practice!" he said, before adding that if you don't have a good sense of humour during trying times like these, 'you'll break yourself'.

On a more serious note, he said: "I just want everything to be good with Fabiana even if the isolation goes on longer. Fortunately the farm never runs out of work. Fabiana also looks after her own coffee plantation."
