Italian style blogger and creator of The Blonde Salad, Chiara Ferragni gave birth to her first child Leoncino Mio Ferragni on March 19 at Cedars-Sinai Hospital – and we just can’t get enough of the snaps that have been landing in our feed ever since.
The fashion influencer has distilled the experience into a series of heartwarming uploads so her 12.3 million followers can join the journey from maternity ward to home.
“These were the best tears I’ve ever cried,” Chiara said in one post.
“This was the moment we saw Leo coming to life: never before I felt such a feeling. It was a long labor and I was exhausted and living this experience with my love by my side was the best motivation…I keep crying when I look at this photo because it means the world. We love you so much already little Leoncino.”
Chiara welcomed Leo into the world with fiancé and rapper Fedez by her hospital bedside. The new father has also shared an outpour of love across social media for his newborn son, posting a hand-to-hand size comparison with Leo, captioned “skin to skin”.
The pint-sized Leo has since been pictured in further uploads and Instagram stories from his parents, rugged up to meet family members such as Auntie and fellow fashionista Valentina Ferragni.
