Gucci creative director announces pregnancy

Thursday November 29, 2012

Gucci's creative director Frida Giannini is pregnant with her first child.

The 40-year-old director of the fashion house is celebrating her good news with her Gucci CEO husband, Patrizio di Marco.

The power couple confirmed that they were in a relationship last year, branding their partnership as "serious".

"The relationship Frida and I have is very serious," Patrizio told the Financial Times.

"When in life, you choose someone to be with - someone you are looking to spend your life with - this is a match of minds and souls.

"We don't agree on everything. But you only really argue when you have something important to argue about. Otherwise you realise it's not worth it."

Frida will be the latest to join the fashion elite's baby boom. Alexander McQueen's creative director Sarah Burton will be expecting twins in February, whilst Gucci renovator Tom Ford announced the birth of his son Alexander in October.
