Right now, I’m in Italy. Here, in my wife’s hometown of Rome, we happened to welcome our baby.” 

“It’s a healthy son… and both the baby and his mother are in very good health. As we welcomed our child in good health and joy, I am taking care of my family very happily, with a grateful heart,” he adds.
