Tamara Eccelstone was “bewildered” when her father Bernie revealed he was going to be a dad again at the age of 90.
Married heiress Tamara, 35, told that the family was thrilled, and her father was a very young soul.
Bernie, who has another daughter as well, Deborah, 65, from his first marriage to Ivy Bamford, spoke to Tamara, husband Jay Rutland, and her daughter Fifi just before lockdown.
In an interview, she said: “‘We had no idea what was going on. We just thought we were meeting Dad and Fabi for a meal. We were in the middle of eating when Fabiana told us.”
She added that her dad, now married to Fabiana, 44, called her sister Petra in LA so they both found out the news at the same time.
Tamara was described as thrilled, “but still a bit bewildered” when she heard the news that her daughter will be older than her own brother.
Then she said: “We are so happy for them. He has amazing energy, and he’s a young soul. Any baby news at this time is amazing.
“It was funny though because Fifi actually asked her if she was planning on having a baby just before they told us while she was actually pregnant and they were like ‘no, we don’t know’ but she was probably in her early stages.
“When Fifi heard the news she was like, ‘I told you she was having a baby.”
With his second wife, Slavica Radic, he has Tamara, 35, and Petra, 31.
He and Fabiana got married in 2012, three years after his divorce from Slavica.
Ecclestone is grandfather to Lavinia, and Andrew and James Stunt, both 5.
