At the ripe age of 60, former triple world champion Niki Lauda is set to be a father for the fourth time.

The Austrian's great new wife, 30-year-old Birgit, is pregnant, according to the daily Osterreich newspaper.

"I don't comment on private matters," he said. "But let me tell you there will be no pictures of the baby for the media -- and not a single statement by me."

Last August, Lauda married Birgit Wetzinger, a former stewardess with one of his own airlines.

He already has three sons: Matthias (28), a racing driver, Lukas (30), Matthias' manager, and 27-year-old Christoph.
