A SPORTS star has revealed that he’s happily married to his stepsister – and the pair are already expecting their first baby together.
Portuguese MotoGP rider Miguel Oliveira tied the knot with long-term partner Andreia Pimenta last month, sharing the news with his 634,000 Instagram followers.
“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,” Oliveira, 26, wrote.
“I feel happy and lucky to share my life with my wife who is my other half. Thank you all.”
The couple, who have known each other since they were 13, had a secret relationship for 11 years before going public in 2019.
On Friday, Pimenta and Oliveira revealed they were expecting their first child together News.com.au reports , sharing a picture of the ultrasound and the baby bump.
“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,” he wrote on Instagram.
The official MotoGP page commented: “We’re so happy for you and can’t wait to have a new member in the paddock.”
Fellow MotoGP rider Maverick Vinnales replied: “Congrats Miguel! Is the best thing you could experience in the world.”
Pimenta, 24, is the daughter of Oliveira’s father’s second wife Cristina and it was the driver’s dad Paulo who revealed the exciting news.
He told Marca: “I’m happy that my son is getting married to the woman of his life.”
Oliveira himself previously opened up about falling for his step-sister before admitting they had planned to wed this year.
Speaking to Manuel Luis Goucha, the Portuguese said: “Before love there was a great friendship. We grew up together.
“At some point we realized 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 next year.”
The lastest news means 24-year-old Oliveira has been celebrating on and off the track.
It comes after he won the MotoGP prize at the Styria Grand Prix for the first time in the history of Portuguese motorcycling.
He said: “Just screaming and pure joy to have done it finally.
“I saw this coming already quite a few races ago.
“I felt we had the potential to do it, so finally to be able to do it is a huge boost to be able to continue like this.”
