33-year-old American model Maggie Rizer and her Iranian businessman husband Alex Mehran welcomed their first child into the world on Wednesday – a bouncing baby boy called Alexander Rafahi Mehran III… Zander for short!
“I am so proud to tell you that we welcomed our son, Alexander Rafahi Mehran III this afternoon,” Maggie proudly wrote on her blog. “Zander was born at 5:30pm near San Francisco, weighing 7lbs 13 oz. He has 10 fingers, 10 toes, sandy hair, deep blue eyes and is practically perfect, in every possible way!
Zander is just the latest of Maggie’s achievements – of which there have been many. From covering Italian Vogue to appearing in Sex and the City to receiving the VH1/Vogue ’Model of the Year’ award to being an ambassador for Operation Smile and raising awareness for AIDS (from which her father died) the list is almost endless.
“Alex and I are very proud parents and incredibly excited to get to know our new little lad. We feel tremendously blessed this Thanksgiving!”
That sounds like a perfect present to us.
Oh, and before we forget, Happy Thanksgiving to all our Stateside readers!
