Ottavio got a bit of happy news just before he passed away. His granddaughter Margherita Missoni, who has become one of the brand's most visible faces, is pregnant with a baby boy.
"It was like a miracle or something that I would become pregnant at that time. Everyone especially my grandmother is going crazy for the baby," she said. "Not only is he the first of the fourth generation, but with everything with my uncle and the fact that he's a boy. It's like he's the baby Jesus!"
