David Coulthard and his fiancee Karen Minier have named their newly-born first son Dayton.

David Coulthard and his fiancee Karen Minier have named their newly-born first son Dayton.

The baby boy, three weeks premature and weighing 2.8 kilograms, was born last Friday.

A few days on, the trio have now returned to their home near Brussels (Belgium).

It is believed the name Dayton was selected not only so the boy could share his father's moniker 'DC', but also in reference to the family's Hayton-Coulthard haulage business.

"I was incredibly lucky to be a grand prix driver for 15 years, something I could only dream of as a wee boy.

"But nothing compares to his birth and winning 13 races seems completely insignificant in comparison," Coulthard, 37, told The Herald.

Dayton Coulthard's middle name is Minier, the surname of his Belgian mother.
