A girl for Ge­or­gia!

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - NEWS - By Ni­amh Walsh SHOW­BUSI­NESS ED­I­TOR ni­amh.walsh@mailon­sun­day.ie

GE­OR­GIA Penna – née Salpa – and her hus­band Joe have wel­comed a baby girl to their fam­ily.

Baby Penna was born to an Amer­i­can sur­ro­gate last week and sources have told the Ir­ish Mail on Sun­day that ‘ev­ery­thing went great and they are de­lighted with their lit­tle baby girl’.

She is also un­der­stood to have a mop of dark hair, tak­ing af­ter her model mother Ge­or­gia.

Ge­or­gia, Joe and their two-yearold twin sons will stay in Amer­ica for an­other month while the for­mal­i­ties sur­round­ing the birth are fi­nalised.

Then the fam­ily, who live in Dubai, will fly to Dublin so that the new baby can meet her Ir­ish grand­par­ents and Ge­or­gia’s Ir­ish friends.

‘There is great ex­cite­ment,’ a source said. ‘Ge­or­gia has two younger sis­ters and a brother so they are all de­lighted with a new lit­tle girl in the house.’

‘There is great ex­cite­ment’

hus­band Joe Penna touched down in Amer­ica last month as they pre­pared for the ar­rival of the lit­tle girl.

The fam­ily took some quiet time State­side and had been pic­tured en­joy­ing life ahead of the ar­rival of their third child.

In Fe­bru­ary Ge­or­gia’s friends threw her a lav­ish baby shower in Dubai where the ta­ble had a pink theme.

Ge­or­gia and mil­lion­aire hus­band Joe, who is Bri­tish, at­tended a clinic in Amer­ica’s Mid­west where ‘baby girl Penna’ was due to be de­liv­ered.

The cou­ple, who mar­ried in May 2015, pre­vi­ously used a sur­ro­gate for the birth of their twin sons in De­cem­ber 2015.

In that month, the MoS broke the news that model Ge­or­gia, who grew up in Killiney, south Co. Dublin, had be­come a mother when we pub­lished pic­tures of her push­ing a dou­ble buggy in Lon­don.

Upon the ar­rival of the twins in 2015 Ge­or­gia an­nounced that she would not be shar­ing any pic­tures of the boys.

‘I won’t be post­ing any pho­tos of them on so­cial me­dia as I’d like to keep them pri­vate,’ she said at the time.

How­ever, the proud mother has since sprin­kled her In­sta­gram feed with pic­tures of her twins and hedge fund hus­band Joe en­joy­ing fam­ily life, al­beit with the faces of her sons ob­scured.

By all ap­pear­ances, the two-yearold boys have in­her­ited their mother’s keen eye for fash­ion. They are of­ten pic­tured decked out in match­ing de­signer gear, as fol­low­ers of Ge­or­gia’s In­sta­gram feed will at­test.

And while their faces have been clev­erly cropped out of shots, or cov­ered by way of amus­ing stick­ers, there is no mis­tak­ing the vig­or­ous mops of blond hair that the boys have in­her­ited from their fa­ther Joe.

In Fe­bru­ary Ge­or­gia took to In­sta­gram to share a pic­ture of the baby shower that friends had thrown for her. For many fans, the post was the first in­di­ca­tion that the model would soon be ex­pand­ing her young fam­ily. She also shared via so­cial me­dia pic­tures from her hen party which was held in the Mina a’ Salam Ho­tel in Dubai, where the Pen­nas now live. Fans will be ea­ger to catch a glimpse of the out­fits that Ge­or­gia, 32, will no doubt cu­rate for the dark-haired lat­est ad­di­tion to the fam­ily.

Greek-born Ge­or­gia worked as a high-pro­file glam­our model in Ire­land be­fore tak­ing part in Celebrity Big Brother in the UK. FHM named her one of the 100 Sex­i­est Women in 2012 and 2013.
