There will soon be an addition to the Versace family as Francesca Versace has announced that she is pregnant with her first child with Cristhopher Meireles Leoni, a Brazilian model and actor.

The designer said that she is enjoying the mid stages of her pregnancy, and is "keeping in shape by swimming and doing yoga." She may be carrying a child, but the 32-year-old is not about to give up her heels. "I have opted for more comfy mid-heel versions for practicality," she said.

Francesca is the daughter of Santo Versace, CEO of the renowned Italian fashion company. Donatella Versace and the late Gianni Versace are her aunt and uncle respectively. Restoring faith in pregnant fashionistas everywhere, Francesca also shared that she is trying out maternity wear, favouring long V-neck cotton tunics, Adriano Goldschmied by Blossom jeans, oversized white shirts, Osman's floral embroidered tops and Peter Pilotto's floaty printed dresses.
