Royal baby alert: Charlotte Casiraghi gives birth to second child

Charlotte Casiraghi, daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco, has given birth to her second child on Tuesday morning. Father is the French film producer Dimitri Rassam.

Princess Caroline’s daughter Charlotte Casiraghi and her fiancé Dimitri Rassam have welcomed their first child together. Charlotte reportedly gave birth to a son at the Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco on Tuesday morning. The baby weighs 4,450 kg. An official confirmation of the Monégasque Princely Court is yet to come.

The new baby is the second son for Charlotte as she already has a son Raphaël (4) with ex-boyfriend comedian Gad Elmaleh. Dimitri Rassam also has a child from his previous marriage with Masha Novoselova, a daughter named Darya (7). The new baby will thus have enough playmates.

Since Charlotte and Dimitri are not married, the new baby boy will not be in line to the throne of Monaco. The niece of Prince Albert II of Monaco herself is seventh in line to the throne. The baby boy is also the seventh grandchild for Princess Caroline.

2018 has been a real baby boom for the Monegasque Princely family as Charlotte’s brothers Andrea and Pierre both welcomed a son last spring. Andrea and his wife Tatiana Casiraghi welcomed their third child, a boy named Maximilian ‘Max’ Rainier. Pierre and his wife Beatrice Casiraghi became parents for the second time of a boy named Francesco. Charlotte’s stepbrother, Hereditary Prince Ernst August of Hanover and his wife Hereditary Princess Ekatarina announced they were expecting their second child last week.

Charlotte Casiraghi and Dimitri Rassam have been together since December 2016. The pair reportedly got engaged during a ski holiday in March of 2018. The Monegasque Princely Court never confirmed the news, but Charlotte has been spotted wearing an engagement ring ever since. The couple decided to postpone their wedding when they found out Charlotte was pregnant.
