I found out about your birth from the fireworks they made for you thus knowing that today November 25, 2023 has become the most important day of my life and in the midst of all this chaos you are my blessing.”

It was Shiva himself who announced the imminent paternity on social media when he posted a photo of an ultrasound of the child with the writing “New Prince of Milan” and the symbol of a crown. «I already love you madly and can’t wait to see you as soon as I get permission. This is the worst sentence and the worst lesson I could have received – concluded Shiva -. I will never forgive myself for this absence but it will be one more reason to make up for it with all the love I have».
