Ferrari Formula One driver Kimi Raikkonen married Minttu Virtanen on Sunday, Aug. 7, 2016 in an intimate ceremony in the Tuscan region of Italy. The pair already have a 19 month old son named Robin.

Kimi Raikkonen made the most out of the Formula 1 summer break by marrying his baby’s mama in a romantic Italian ceremony. According to Mail Online, the wedding was held at the Abbey of San Galgano, which is located in Siena. Raikkonen wore a dark dapper suit, while his bride kept it simple and elegant with a form fitting white dress.

Minttu shared a sweet photo of the couple, which shows them sharing a kiss at the wedding venue. Minttu has already taken Kimi’s last name and has changed her Instagram handle to @minttu.raikkonen. She also proudly captioned her post by saying “Mr and Mrs Räikkönen❤️.” This is Kimi’s second marriage. His first wife is former Ms.Scandinavia, Jenni Dahlman. The pair wed in 2004 and divorced in 2014.

The 2007 World Champion’s new wife claims that they have agreed to have more children. She explains that they do not want to have a large age gap between Robin and his future siblings. “He wants to have more children. If it was up to him he would be a dad again right away. I too would like to have a second child if pregnancy did not have so many negatives,” she said.

Even with millions at your disposal, it can’t be easy shuttling a young family around the Formula One circuit. Raikkonen has just recently renewed his contract to race for the Scuderia Ferrari Formula One Team. His boss, Ferrari team principal Maurizio Arrivabene and his wife Stefania Bocchi, were among the wedding guests. Raikkonen currently lies fourth in the championship standings behind the Mercedes pair of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg as well as Daniel Ricciardo.
