Princess Beatrice and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, recently announced that they named their daughter Sienna, and now a family friend of the couple has revealed the sweet meaning behind the moniker.
"They were looking for an Italian name which started with an S for Sarah, to honor the Duchess [Sarah Ferguson], and also reflected the golden rust color of both the Duchess's hair color and Beatrice's, which the new baby shares," they told HELLO! magazine.
Meanwhile, Beatrice, 33, decided to honor her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, too, as the tot's middle name is Elizabeth.
Beatrice and Mozzi announced they were a family of three in mid-September. "Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are delighted to announce the safe arrival of their daughter on Saturday 18th September 2021, at 23.42, at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London," the palace shared. "The baby weighs 6 pounds and 2 ounces. The new baby’s grandparents and great-grandparents have all been informed and are delighted with the news."
"The family would like to thank all the staff at the hospital for their wonderful care. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well, and the couple are looking forward to introducing their daughter to her big brother Christopher Woolf," the statement continued.
A few weeks later, Mozzi spilled the beans about his daughter's name.
"Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi 👶🏼Our life together has just begun, and I can’t wait to see all the amazing things that await us," the handsome hunk wrote via Instagram. "Feeling so much love and gratitude for my amazing wife, baby Sienna and Wolfie. These are the days I never want to forget. This week, a friend said to me the sweetest saying….that with every child you grow a whole new heart 💖A massive thank you to the Midwife and the amazing team at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. 🙏🏻 x."
