Her husband Edoardo added on Instagram: “Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi. Our life together has just begun, and I can’t wait to see all the amazing things that await us. Feeling so much love and gratitude for my amazing wife, baby Sienna and Wolfie. These are the days I never want to forget. This week, a friend said to me the sweetest saying….that with every child you grow a whole new heart. A massive thank you to the Midwife and the amazing team at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.”
In keeping with tradition, the tot’s middle name, Elizabeth, has a sweet connection to her great-grandmother, the Queen. Meanwhile, the name Sienna derives its meaning from the Italian city of Siena in Tuscany.
The name announcement comes 13 days after the baby’s birth on 18 September.
