FORMULA 1 heiress Petra Ecclestone has urged mothers not to ignore their maternal intuition — after multiple doctors dismissed her son’s cries of pain. The daughter of billionaire Bernie Ecclestone reveals one of her eight-year-old twin sons had been suffering for a month but, despite scans, no doctor could find out what was wrong with him. Petra, who lives in Los Angeles with her second husband, Sam Palmer, explains: ‘A month later, the pain persisted. I decided to take him to the emergency room as the pain got worse. ‘They performed more tests and realised his appendix was enlarged. He is now recovering at home. ‘ Never give up on your mother’s gut feeling.’
