Jenson Button and partner Brittny Ward have announced they are expecting their first child this summer.

2009 Formula 1 world champion Button got together with Ward, 28, in March 2016 following his split with ex-wife Jessica Michibata, with the pair announcing their engagement last June.

In a post uploaded to both Twitter and Instagram, Button revealed on Thursday night that he is set to become a father later this year, uploading a picture of a pregnancy scan.

"Brittny & I are delighted to announce the new edition to the family currently having his first seat! Look how comfy he looks!" wrote Button.

Button will be balancing new father duties with another year racing in the Japanese Super GT series, having claimed his maiden title in the championship last year.
