Jenson Button and Brittny Ward Are Expecting Their First Child

The retired F1 driver Jenson Button and his Playboy model fiancee have announced the good news. Button shared a baby scan picture on Instagram, capturing: „Brittny & I are delighted to announce the new edition to the family currently having his first seat! Look how comfy he looks! #babybutton“.

Just few minutes after his post, Ward also took it to Instagram to share the baby news, where she wrote: „Baby couldn’t wait for the wedding, he’s decided to make an early appearance.“

The couple got engaged in June. In 2016 Button retired form F1, but decided to become a part of Sky Sports commentary team in 2017.

In 2015 Button’s one year marriage to Jessica Michibata, the Japanese model, ended, and since 2016 he has been dating Ward. Ward started modelling at early age. Her mother was taking her to many pageants when she was only 12. She was a ring girl for UFC in 2010. In 2015 she appeared in Playboy as Miss January. She has her own swimwear collection.

Button revealed he couldn’t wait to start his new job back in 2017: „I enjoyed working with the Sky team at Silverstone and bringing in different views. I don’t mind being outspoken, which is good. Next year promises to be an exciting year in Formula One. There are a lot of changes and I love the idea of Charles Leclerc going up alongside Sebastian Vettel at Ferrari.“

After 17 seasons, Button decided to finish his F1 career. In 2017 he once filled in for Fernando Alonso in the IndyCar 500.
