A cleft lip or palate occurs when the parts of a baby’s face do not join properly during its development in the womb. 

Gianluca told US Hola: ‘When they told me, my head, my soul and my heart immediately went with Blu, but also with all the children who can have the same condition and who are not lucky enough of having resources like us.

‘The operation consists of opening the palate and suturing the muscles that did not close naturally during pregnancy. But, of course, it is a surgery that involves anesthesia, and Blu is only a few months old.

‘Although the doctors have explained to us that once the problem is corrected, she will be able to lead a completely normal life. Thank God, she looks a lot more like her mother.’

What is a Cleft Palate? 

A cleft lip or palate occurs when the parts of a baby’s face do not join properly during its development in the womb.

Around 1,200 babies are born with the condition every year in the UK. 

Cleft lips can range from a small notch in part of the lip to complete separation of the upper lip up to the nose.  

In some cases surgery is needed to close the gap left by the cleft, which usually takes place when the baby is under one-year-old. 

Treatment may also be required to aid speech, teeth growth and hearing.

The millionaire and his model girlfriend went on talk about Blu’s birth, with Sharon explaining she had to have an emergency C-section after three days of labour. 

The model said Gianluca ‘could only cry and cry,’ when he saw his daughter for the first time and managed to say to Sharon: ‘She is doing well and she is beautiful, amore.’

Gianluca also expressed his hopes of ‘combining my work with dedicating as much time as possible to my daughter to see her grow up and be with her’.

Last month, Sharon revealed that she has stopped using her phone and even forgets to drink water as she recovers from her c-section.

She wrote on Instagram: ‘Thank you guys for the love we have received.  

‘I don’t lie if I tell you that this is the first time in a week I put on clothes other than my pjs, and that I haven’t used my phone the whole week, or sometimes I forget to even drink water, while recovering from a c-section. 

‘But honestly, I’m enjoying every little second of it. It’s been a week… and I feel nostalgic that time is flying already!!’ 

The happy couple are enjoying parenthood following the birth of their daughter, with Sharon proclaiming that Gianluca is the ‘most amazing father’.
