Petra is understood to be keen to bring up the child in London and Los Angeles, where she owns lavish homes. Her father, the ex-Formula One tycoon, who is currently involved in a billion pound dispute with the taxman, is said to be ‘delighted’

Her father, the ex-Formula One tycoon, who is currently involved in a billion pound dispute with the taxman, is said to be ‘delighted’.  

A Sun source said: ‘Petra and Sam are absolutely thrilled. They are both real family people, and discussed kids almost from the get-go.

‘Obviously Petra has told her sister Tamara and dad Bernie, and they were both delighted.

‘Bernie and the family have had a tough past few weeks, so this has been the lift they all wanted.’

Petra is understood to be keen to bring up the child in London and Los Angeles, where she owns lavish homes, The Sun reports.

Recruitment consultant Sam, 35, is the best friend of her older sister Tamara’s husband Jay Rutland. Petra started dating him shortly after her divorce was finalised. 

She previously said: ‘It was so unexpected. I ­randomly bumped into him when he came to LA to visit Jay.

‘I honestly thought I was going to turn celibate, or into a lesbian. You meet someone when you least expect it or when you don’t want it… that’s always when it happens.’

The pair announced their engagement last New Year’s Eve – just over a year after her break-up with businessman James, with whom she has a daughter and two sons. 

The divorce was finalised in October 2017, after six years of marriage.
