- Bernie Ecclestone just became a father again at the age of 89

Former Formula 1 chief Bernie Ecclestone and his wife, Fabiana Flosi, have welcomed their first child together.
The billionaire and Flosi have been married since 2012. On Wednesday, July 1, a spokesperson for Ecclestone confirmed to CNN that the couple have welcomed a son, Ace, into the world.
Ace is Ecclestone's fourth child - he is also the father to daughters Petra, 31, Tamara, 36, and Deborah, 65.
According to Swiss newspaper Blick, Flosi said the birth was "easy" and over within 25 minutes.
Flosi's pregnancy came to light in April when her husband opened up about becoming a dad again at 89, People reported.
CNN reported at the time that he told UK news agency PA Media:
“I don’t see there’s any difference between being 89 and 29. You’ve got the same problems I suppose. It’s all right.”
Flosi told Blick newspaper that they only hoped the baby is born healthy and she added:
"Hopefully he will never express the intention to do something with Formula 1."
Social media users have reacted to the business mogul becoming a dad at such an advanced age.
Twitter user, @scottymfc_, commented:
"Lemme get this straight... Bernie Ecclestone just had his first so at the age of 89 with a woman aged 44. His eldest daughter is 65."
