Screen siren Sophia Loren rang in the New Year as a third-time grandmother – her daughter-in-law, actress Sasha Alexander, gave birth to a baby boy last month (Dec10).
Rizzoli & Isles star Alexander and her writer/director husband Edoardo Ponti – the son of Italian actress Loren – welcomed their second child, Leonardo Fortunato Ponti, on 20 December (10) in Geneva, Switzerland. The couple confirmed the news to People.com in a statement:
“We are so thrilled to welcome our little Leonardo. He’s a wonderful gift and we are all in love – especially the grandmas!”
The new addition joins the couple’s daughter Lucia Sofia, four. Loren has one other grandchild, three-year-old Vittorio, born to her son Carlo Ponti, Jr.
Alexander and Ponti wed in August 2007.
