Interlaken (dpa) - The long-time Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone became a father again at the age of 89. A spokeswoman for the English confirmed to the German press agency on Wednesday the birth of his first son.

The boy is listening to the name "Ace", Ecclestone's wife Fabiana Flosi, who is several decades younger, and the child is said to be doing well. Initially, the Swiss “Blick” and “Bild” reported on late fatherly happiness. The child is said to have been born in Interlaken in Switzerland. "It all went so smoothly," quoted the "Blick" Flosi.

Ecclestone was around 40 years of Formula 1 boss. In 2017 he was sold as managing director by the new owner Liberty Media. Ecclestone has been married to Brazilian Flosi since 2012 and also lives with her on a farm near São Paulo. Ecclestone turns 90 in late October. He already has three daughters from previous relationships.
