Nico Rosberg has become a father after his wife Vivian gave birth to a baby daughter on Sunday afternoon.
The German had been on standby for a while, and had even made plans to rush away from the last race in Belgium, so he could be there for the birth.
But after a frustrating few days of waiting, Rosberg announced on social media on Monday morning that he was now a parent.
"Our full moon baby girl was born yesterday afternoon,” said Rosberg. "We are overwhelmed and totally in love. Best wishes, V + N.”
Rosberg had joked in Spa that the transition to parenthood had already resulted in a new approach to life – and cars.
"We just have family cars at the moment in the garage, we have a Mercedes ML, and a Mercedes GLK,” he said.
"And the baby seat is in the ML, and it took me two hours to put it in there. It's one of the toughest recent experiences!”
