Billionaire former Formula 1 boss and wife Fabiana Flosi, 44, shared their joy on Friday when they proudly showed their newborn baby for the first time.

Alexander Charles Ecclestone, or Ace for short, was born on Wednesday near Bern, Switzerland, where they are locked up at their home
Miss Flosi gave birth on Wednesday of 7lb 1oz Alexander Charles Ecclestone – Ace for short – near Bern, Switzerland, where they are locked up at their home.
She said Friday, “I’m very happy, it couldn’t have been better. We are very happy as a family. ‘
Mr. Ecclestone is already used to having a baby, as he has three daughters from his previous marriages and five grandchildren.
His oldest, Deborah, 65, was born Ivy Bamford’s first wife. He has two other daughters, socialites Tamara, 35, and Petra, 31, with his second wife Slavica Radic.
But this time, Mr. Ecclestone, who is celebrating his 90th birthday in October, hopes it will be an easier experience.
He said, “It is all very good, I am very happy. It is different now, I am more relaxed and my work is not so under pressure so I can spend more time with him. ‘

He added, “I just hope I live long enough to see as much of our baby as possible.”
Asked if he would change diapers, Mr. Ecclestone said, “I doubt it. I’ll do what is asked. ‘
He married marketing director Miss Flosi in 2012, three years after divorcing Croatian model Miss Radic.
Earlier this week, she shared how Ace’s birth had been “easy” and said, “The birth was over after 25 minutes. Thank God!’
When Mr. Ecclestone confirmed that he would be a father again at 89 earlier this year, he said. “I don’t see a difference between being 89 and 29 years old. You have the same problems, I guess. ”
Petra Ecclestone had her first child in March with fiancé Sam Palmer, 37.
She already has Lavinia, seven and five-year-old twins James and Andrew with ex-husband James Stunt.
Her sister Tamara has daughter Sophia, six, with art magnate Jay Rutland.
