A girl for Georgia!
Surrogate gives birth to Georgia’s daughter – two years after birth of model’s twin boys
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.’

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.
