Loris Capirossi and wife Ingrid had reason to celebrate yesterday, with the birth of their first son in Italy. Weighing 3.350kg, the new addition to their family has been named Riccardo. Luckily for former 250cc World Champion Capirossi, the birth came at a break between races and not on the predicted date of March 25, the day of the Gran Premio bwin.com de Jerez.

The Ducati rider says that both he and his wife are "extremely happy," stating that becoming parents was to them "their own World Championship win" before cheekily adding "now we'll go for another!". April is a busy month for birthdays in the Capirossi household, as Loris and Ingrid celebrate theirs on the 4th and 5th of the month respectively.
