MotoGP star Miguel Oliveira has married his step-sister and now the pair have announced that they’re expecting a baby.
The 26-year-old sportsman kept his relationship a secret for 11 years before announcing that he was going out with the daughter of his dad’s second wife.
Oliveira and Andreia Pimenta got engaged and started planning their wedding which had to be postponed due to his racing commitments.
In a post on Instagram on 26 July, Oliveira told his fans: “This weekend we made the most important curve of our lives. We sealed our love through marriage and we want to share it with you.
“I feel happy and lucky to share my life with my wife who is my other half. Thank you all.”
Then five days ago they shared some more news: they’re having a baby.
Once again, Oliveira took to Instagram writing: “Our lives will carry out with a special company. A job that will last the rest of our journey. Anxious to meet you my love.”
The happy couple were flooded with messages of congratulations with MotoGP’s official page telling them: “We’re so happy for you and can’t wait to have a new member in the paddock.”
Fellow MotoGP rider, Maverick Viñales, added: “Congrats Miguel!!! Is the best thing you could experience in the world.”
According to SpeedWeek, the Red Bull KTM star and his wife will become parents at the beginning of 2022.
As well as sharing a picture of himself and Pimenta on the track, he also posted a picture of a Shark helmet with the words ‘Bebé a Bordo’ which, of course, translates to ‘Baby on Board’.
When Oliveira first spoke about his relationship, he told Portugese TV host Manuel Luis Goucha: “Before love there was a great friendship. We grew up together.
“At some point we realised that it was more than a friendship, it is a very strong love.
“We were going to get married this year, but that weekend I had a race and we had to postpone it until next year.”
His dad, Paulo, spoke to a Spanish sports newspaper, saying: “I’m happy that my son is getting married to the woman of his life.”
