Pregnant Margherita Missoni reveals her beautiful baby nursery
22 AUGUST 2013Margherita Missoni, who is expected to give birth this week, has given fans a glimpse into her baby's nursery and her house in Italy, in a series of photos she posted on Twitter.
The heavily pregnant heiress to fashion house Missoni has been updating her tweets using the hashtag "#waitingforotto," alongside the gorgeous photos of her beautifully-decorated home.
Margherita and her racing driver husband Eugenio Amos seem to have already chosen their baby's name — Otto Amos, with Otto referring to Margherita's late grandfather, Ottavio Missoni, who founded the clothing brand.

"Grazie @cocobrandolini! Otto Amos will be so happy with his pillows!" tweeted Margherita, alongside a photo of the two pillows embroidered with "mamma" and "papa" stitching.
The fashionista posted another photo of a 1950s vintage wooden crib with an adorable blue polka dot canopy. The baby's nursery has been decorated with an interesting variety of picture frames, including a Santa Claus riding a sleigh and some children's drawings.
Margherita showcased her eclectically designed house in more snapshots, with one particularly endearing caption that said, "Marriage is compromise #africanart & #trophies #pictures & #motors #varesetheplacetobe #waitingforotto," as both her and her husband influenced their home decor.
While the Missoni family have kept mum on the tragic events that they have gone through this year, including the January disappearance of Vittorio Missoni, CEO of the family's fashion house, followed by the death of Ottavio, Margherita recently opened up about the difficult times.
"It has helped us a lot that there are so many of us and we are so tight," she said, speaking to The Times. "It's easier than if you were having to face it all on your own.
"Of course it was hard for me, especially because I'm pregnant. I've had a very intense pregnancy, with all the things that have happened."
Margherita, who is reportedly past her due date, has her baby's arrival to look forward to. She will also no doubt be celebrating when her close friend Tatiana Santo Domingo weds Monegasque royal Andrea Casiraghi at the end of this month.
