MotoGP rider Miguel Oliveira has shared photos of his wedding day after marrying stepsister Andreia Pimenta, who is also pregnant with the couple's first child.
The Portuguese rider and his stepsister kept their relationship a secret for 11 years before announcing plans to get married last year.

Pimenta is the daughter of Oliveira's father's second wife, with the MotoGP ace sharing news of last month's wedding with his 634,000 Instagram followers.
“This weekend we made the most important curve of our lives. We sealed our love through marriage and we want to share it with you,” Oliveria wrote.
“I feel happy and lucky to share my life with my wife who is my other half. Thank you all.”
Oliveira also confirmed recently that his new wife was pregnant with their child after posting a photo of the pair together showing her baby bump.
He also included a photo of the ultrasound along with a special message.
"Our lives will carry out with a special company," the post read.
"A job that will last the rest of our journey. Anxious to meet you my love," he wrote on Instagram in reference to the baby Pimenta is carrying.
“Congrats Miguel! Is the best thing you could experience in the world," fellow MotoGP rider Maverick Vinnales responded.
Oliveira met his stepsister in his teens when his father was married to her mother.
Couple kept relationship secret for years
“Before love there was a great friendship. We grew up together,” he told Manuel Luís Goucha on Portuguese TV last year.
“At some point we realised that it was more than a friendship, it is a very strong love.”
The pair were originally set to tie the knot in 2020 but had to postpone after changes to the MotoGP calendar.
“We were going to get married this year, but that weekend I had a race and we had to postpone it to next year,” he said at the time.
The pair announced they were going to get married on Instagram.
Pimenta posted: “Today was marked forever in my life. The answer was YES.”
Oliveira's father gave the couple his blessing.
"I’m happy that my son is getting married to the woman of his life," Paulo Oliveira told Spanish newspaper Marca.
