First post-baby appearance for Andrea Casiraghi and Tatiana Santo Domingo

Monegasque royal Andrea Casiraghi and his beautiful fiancée Tatiana Santo Domingo have made their first public appearance since welcoming their first child into the world.

The couple, who became parents for the first time in March when Tatiana gave birth to a baby boy, stepped out for the Dior Cruise show in Monaco on Sunday.

The glowing new mum beamed as she turned up to the fashion event with her equally happy fiancé. She had opted to cover up in a red cape and baggy black trousers. Andrea, meanwhile, was dapper in a blue suit and red tie.

The pair were joined on the front row by fellow Monegasque royals Princess Charlene and Prince Albert.

Charlene was as elegant as ever, showing off her statuesque physique in a tight-fitting black dress with navy panels. Her cropped hair had been swept to the side and natural make-up completed the look.

Later in the evening, the beautiful blonde attended a cocktail party wearing a different outfit. She had changed into a colourful dress that boasted orange, blue, black and silver panels.

 



Charlene rubbed shoulders with many A-listers at the stylish bash including Jessica Biel, Marion Cotillard and Liv Tyler.

Andrea and Tatiana became parents back in March. Princess Caroline's press office confirmed the news via a statement. "Her Serene Highness Princess Caroline has the pleasure of announcing the birth of her grandson, born on 21 March 2013," the missive said. "Both mother and baby are doing well".

The newest member of the Grimaldi clan isn't a potential successor to the Monegasque throne given that Andrea and Tatiana have yet to marry. Any future heir will be the child born to Prince Albert and his wife Charlene.

 



The arrival of a royal baby in Monaco normally merits some fanfare: For Princess Caroline's baptism in 1957, four bishops and 15 priests presided. The ceremony took place amid the splendour of the principality's cathedral, which had been filled with 10,000 lilies and tulips for the occasion.

But new mum Tatiana's style is more low-key, and such a lavish display of pomp and circumstance is unlikely to surround her first child.

Instead, the family base will be in Paris, far away from the media spotlight. It was there that Andrea and his fiancée first fell in love while studying.

Tatiana is the granddaughter of the late Colombian mega-mogul Julio Santo Domingo, and is set to inherit an estimated $6bn fortune which she will share with her younger brother Julio Mario Santo Domingo III.

Despite her vast wealth she has worked hard to establish ethical fashion brand Muzungu Sisters, which she co-founded with business partner Dana Alikhani, daughter of the late Iranian businessman Hossein Alikhani.
