Now the number 46 of the tracks is almost ready to devote himself full time to his family, not before having played the last two races of the championship scheduled in the world championship: his partner Francesca Sofia Novello she is in fact pregnant, as they had revealed with a very sweet post on Instagram last August 18, even if the date of arrival of the little girl is still top secret.
As for the name that will bring the birth, however, the first clues were launched by the same “Doctor” in a recent interview with Hyenas to celebrate his career, but also to talk about the near future away from the slopes.
“Knowing to become a dad is certainly more exciting, winning the most adrenaline-pumping world championship”, revealed the nine-time world champion, immediately adding some details on the arrival of the child.
“There are still two or three names in the ballot” and, although he has not unbuttoned himself on the list of eligible candidates, he said that clearly they won’t be Valentina or Sofia, by will of him and his partner.
Then, however, Valentino let slip what would seem to be the name in pole position: “We liked Vittoria … Let’s see!”
The two are happier than ever, and it could not be otherwise: they have been a couple for four years now, after a first acquaintance on the Monza track in 2016, when Francesca Sofia was one of the little girls on the track. The number 46 of the world championship has always defined her as “the right woman” and the announcement of her pregnancy would seem to confirm this.
