Casey Stoner becomes a father for the first time

1 of 1

Reiging MotoGP world champion Casey Stoner and wife Adriana are celebrating the birth of their first child.

Stoner became a father to a baby girl named Alessandra in Switzerland last night.

A short message on the Repsol Honda Twitter feed read: “We are very happy to announce Alessandra Stoner was born on the 16/02/2012 at 21:55 weighing 2.8kg. Mum & baby are both doing well!”

Ironically, Aussie Stoner’s daughter will share a birthday with his great MotoGP rival Valentino Rossi, who celebrated his 33rd birthday yesterday.

All at MCN pass on our warmest congratulations to the Stoner family.
