Former Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone will be a father for the fourth time and this at an incredible 89 years of age, not quite a world record according to our brief research into the subject (96 years old is the current record). It will be his fourth child.

He already has three daughters from his two previous marriages. Tamara (35), Petra (31) and Deborah (65). He also has 5 grandchildren, children being a loose term.


On board a private jet, Bernie Ecclestone and his wife Fabiana left Brazil this week, escape the rising chaotic situation in Sao Paulo.

The former ‘ringmaster’ of Formula 1, had moved to Sao Paulo for 11 months with his partner, pregnant with what will be Ecclestone’s fourth child, thinking his farm to be the best place to stay during the Corona pandemic.

However, the Coronavirus situation in the country has crashed in recent weeks, so Ecclestone and his wife decided to fly to Switzerland.

“We are going to Gstaad in our chalet. Sao Paulo has suddenly become the centre of the coronavirus pandemic. The dead lay in the middle of the road, hospitals are overcrowded and President Jair Bolsonaro is completely overwhelmed.

“He is only now realising the gravity of the situation in Brazil. At least in June this baby will not be born in this Brazilian chaos with completely overcrowded hospitals.

“Fortunately, there are no problems in Switzerland”. explains Ecclestone.

  1. I wonder which of the Swiss entry requirements Bernie manages to fulfil? Resident permit, or “compelling reasons”? I don’t think that bags of money is on the list.

  2. I simply don´t see the chaos he´s saying.
    And they were living in countryside, in a farm, a beautiful one, away from the metropole, where most of the focus are.
    So it looks more like some excuse to justify something.
