Mama's a stunning supermodel. Daddy's a luxury footwear executive. And, Grandpa? Oh, he just so happens to have the fashion world in the palm of his hand. Folks, we've got the fashion royal birth of the century!
According to a gleeful announcement posted on his Facebook page (guess he ran out of monogrammed Smythson stationery), Berluti executive Antoine Arnault is expecting a child with Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova. No doubt his dad, LVMH head Bernard Arnault, is already having the Louis Vuitton diaper bags whipped up.
"Giving a little brother or sister to Natalia’s three wonderful children is something we wanted so much: AND NOW IT’S HAPPENING," Arnault gushed. "We’re going to have our first baby next year!!! #4 for her but #1 for me… I’m a little stressed! She was tired the first 3 months but is fine now. I hope he or she gets Mommy's looks (and beautiful heart!!!) and Daddy's sense of humor!!! Pleaaaaase not the other way around!!!”
Awww. Knowing Vodianova, who is said to be in her second trimester, she'll emerge from her fourth pregnancy looking just as glowy and gorgeous as ever. Trust us: The woman's already had three kids — 11-year-old Lucas, 7-year-old Neva, and 6-year-old Viktor with ex-husband Justin Portman — and we've yet to see a single stretch mark.
Even so, we couldn't be happier for the couple. Vodkas all around — except for you, Natalia.
