Julia Restoin Roitfeld Gives Birth to Baby

Julia Restoin Roitfeld Is a New Mother (Update: It's a Girl)


br>
Congratulations are in order for Julia Restoin Roitfeld, the newest mother in the fashion industry.

Derek Blasberg tweeted that Julia gave birth to her child today but offered no details about the child's gender or name. "Congratulations to proud Momma @RestoinRJulia! (And thus, the chicest grannie ever: Carine Roitfeld!)" he wrote. "Can't wait to meet the beautiful baby!"

The new son or daughter will no doubt be beautiful: Julia once modeled for Lancome and recently posed for the Summer 2012 cover of i-D magazine. The baby's father is Swedish model Robert Konjic, who has been dating Julia for the past few years.

And while Julia's mother, Carine, is surely proud of the new addition to her family, she's already decided that she doesn't want to be called "grandmother." When her daughter announced that she was pregnant last November, Carine said, "I will be called 'Madame.'"

Update: Julia's publicist Katy Moseley revealed the gender and name of the new baby, Romy Nicole Konjic, to Vogue UK on Thursday. "We are delighted to confirm that Julia and Robert have had a healthy baby girl," Moseley said. "Both mother and daughter are doing very well and resting at home."
