Heiress Tamara Ecclestone is recovering from her break-up with boyfriend Omar Khyami with a fresh start in her new Los Angeles home.

She posed for pictures in the nine-bedroom, 12-bathroom Bel Air house and said she was “just so happy” to be there.

She told Hello! magazine: “The sun is shining, my sister is close by… I feel as though 2013 is going to be the best year ever.”

The house, which has a bar, a gym and a private cinema, is not her main home though – she is about to collect the keys to her multi-million-pound refurbished west-London house.

Ecclestone, the daughter of Formula One boss Bernie, said: “I’m very excited about it: it’s a new beginning. It’s like January marks a whole new start.

“It’s definitely a big house and it’s hopefully somewhere I’ll have forever. I wanted it to be my dream home and I would definitely like it to be my family home when I settle down and have kids. The thing I’m most excited about, though, is moving into a new house that I can make new memories in and close the door on the past.”

Ecclestone is also looking forward to greeting a new family member when her sister Petra gives birth later this year.

She said: “Petra hasn’t publicly spoken about her pregnancy, so I don’t want to be the one to say the wrong thing.

“We are so close, though, and it’s such a special time – I know I’ll never be able to get this time back. I can’t wait to be an auntie and I’ll be around for her as much as I can.”
