Daughter Gina-Maria says thank you
The touching gift from Papa Michael Schumacher
Not much is known about Michael Schumacher’s family life since his skiing accident. Now daughter Gina-Maria shows what touching gift she received from her parents for Christmas.
Gina-Maria Schumacher, the daughter of Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher and his wife Corinna, is a successful western rider.
Since Michael Schumacher’s (53) serious skiing accident nine years ago, the public has not heard much about the Formula 1 legend. The seven-time world champion is shielded. Only a small circle knows how he is doing. Daughter Gina-Maria Schumacher (25) now gives a little insight into family life and shows what heartwarming gift she received from Mama Corinna Schumacher (53) – and from Papa Michael.
“Mom and Dad hit the bull’s eye with these Christmas presents,” enthuses Gina-Maria on the Facebook page of the XCS Ranch in the US state of Texas, with which she and her mother have fulfilled a lifelong dream. In addition, she provides the picture of her gift: a belt that she received as a western rider according to “Bild” because she was promoted to the exclusive club of the NRHA Million Dollar Riders. Only riders who receive bonuses of at least one million dollars in one year can do this.
“We are proud of you. Daddy Mommy”
Actually, the belt buckle is not the gift from the parents, but the finishing. The buckle has been upgraded with gold, silver, and gems. A dedication is engraved on the back. “We are proud of you. Papa & Mama », can be read there. The date of handover is also immortalized: December 24th, 2022.
Designer Holly Spagnola, who upgraded the belt buckle, shared pictures and even a video of the final product on Instagram. “It was a real privilege and pleasure to work for millionaire winner Gina-Maria Schumacher,” she enthuses. “I’m a big fan and I love it when great women shine in this sport.”
She also explains what the different gemstones and signs mean: “The eleven golden stars stand for her eleven European Championships, four rose gold stars for the World Championships and one white gold star.” How much was paid for the upgrade is not known. Spagnola only reveals: “No expense was spared for this beauty!” (imh)
