The Italian bombshell makes headlines as a new mother

When screen siren Sophia Loren gave birth to her first son, Hubert Leoni Carlo Ponti, Jr. in 1968, the media interest was so intense the actress and her film-producer husband held a press conference at the hospital. Hosting a room full of reporters just after enduring labour is not a situation many women would envy. If the legendary beauty was daunted, she didn’t show it. Loren made her debut as a mother in a ruffled white gown with perfectly coiffed hair and her signature cat-eye liner. Leave it to the Hollywood icon to make childbirth look impossibly glamorous.
