British Formula One race car driver David Coulthard is expecting his first child — a baby boy — with his fiancée Karen Minier. The couple’s first child together is due in December and according to the proud papa, his son couldn’t come at a better time! "The baby is due after the end of the season, so things have worked out perfectly," says David, who has also announced his retirement from the sport.

Although David insists that his retirement and the birth of his son are simply coincidental, he admits that this season will be his last time on the track. Originally from Scotland, the soon-to-be first time dad is "really excited about the baby," and already has future goals in mind for his baby boy! David, 37, jokes,

"He’ll be signed up for Ferrari in 2028!"

He’s Scottish, not British.

I’m very happy for them, they were too cute on Mr and Mrs and I’m a huge fan of DC as a racer.

NOOOOOOOOOOO, David not Ferrari! Go McLaren!!

Sammy -yes, David is British AND Scottish, the two are not mutually exclusive since Scotlan is part of Great Britain.

Sammy, what a strange comment! Being Scottish automatically makes you British. I’m hoping that you just didn’t realise this, but being British myself, I have heard many people from different parts of GB/UK who are absolutely adament they are English or Scottish etc and hate being called by the umbrella term. I don’t believe David has ever made that distinction himself so it’s unfair to lay that on him. I am English and British, both at the same time and I am proud of both, somehow I think David will feel the same about his background.

Congrats… Gianfranco Mazzoni said it during a race.
