David Coulthard has revealed that he is expecting his first child with fiancÃ©e Karen Minier. The 37-year old F1 driver has confirmed that the baby will be a boy and he is due just after the 2008 season has ended.
It will be Coulthard s first child, although Minier has a 10-year-old daughter from a previous relationship. Coulthard has said that impending fatherhood was not the driving force behind his decision to quit the sport.
“I am really excited about the baby,â€ Coulthard explained to the British newspaper The Sun. “It s not a new experience for Karen but it will be for me. The baby is due after the end of the season so things have worked out perfectly.â€
Minier was formerly a Formula One reporter for Belgian TV. The pair started dating in 2005 and got engaged a year later.
