Hilfiger 'Couldn't Be More Excited' About Baby News
Fashion mogul TOMMY HILFIGER is overjoyed to learn his second wife DEE OCLEPPO is expecting the couple's first child.
Reports Hilfiger was to become a dad for the fifth time surfaced on Wednesday (25Feb09), and now the star's representative has confirmed his wife is three months pregnant.
The spokesperson says the couple, which wed in December (08), "couldn't be more excited" and began telling pals of its baby news during New York Fashion Week (ends20Feb09).
The rep adds, "They're sharing their joy with friends right now.
"She (Ocleppo) sat front row and so then they started letting some friends know. They couldn't be more happy."
And the rest of the Hilfiger clan, including the designer's four children from a previous marriage and Ocleppo's two kids from a past relationship, are delighted for the expectant parents.
The spokesperson continues, "It's a very tight-knit, family-oriented group so this is just good news all around. The kids couldn't be more excited about welcoming a new member of the family."
The designer's marriage to Susie Hilfiger ended in 2005.
