In a world exclusive, Tamara Ecclestone has revealed to ! magazine that she is 14 weeks pregnant with her first child.
The model and heiress, 29, is expecting a ‘honeymoon baby’ with her husband Jay Rutland – just four months after they got married in France.
“I just feel so lucky,” she told ! in an exclusive interview adding that it’s been quite a year for her, having only met her husband nine months ago. “I never imagined this all happening so quickly. It’s crazy how life works in such mysterious ways. Jay loves children and I’m really excited for the next phase of our relationship.”
The delighted father-to-be, 32, tells the magazine: “It’s been an amazing year, meeting and marrying my beautiful wife. Now we are expecting our first child and looking forward to the next step in our future together.”
And Tamara – whose father is Formula One chief Bernie Ecclestone – says both she and Jay want to make sure the baby is raised with the right values. “I think you can spoil a child with love and attention rather than showering them with materialistic things”, she tells !
“My parents instilled strong values in my sister and I, and I want to pass those on to my child. I want to do all the things my mother did: she always put us first and encouraged us to follow our dreams. I want to be there for my child.”
Tamara says that her parents were thrilled to find out they are to be grandparents again – her sister Petra has a baby daughter Lavinia, six months. “Mum was thrilled as was my dad, he loves babies.”
