Georgina Chapman has become a mother for the first time.

The Marchesa designer - who is married to movie mogul Harvey Weinstein - gave birth to daughter India Pearl in New York on Sunday (29.08.10) and both mother and baby are doing well.

A friend of the couple said: "They are absolutely delighted."

Georgina, 29, announced her pregnancy in April and said she was having fun dressing her ever-expanding stomach.

Speaking at the New Yorkers for Children gala, Georgina said: "We're so excited! I'm five months along, but this dress hides it pretty well!"

While India is the first child for Georgina, Harvey already has three daughters, Lily, Lucy and Emma, from a previous marriage.

In 2004, Georgina co-founded Marchesa with fellow Chelsea College of Art and Design graduate Keren Craig, with the label being named after socialite Marchesa Luisa Casati.

Investors of the brand include Giuseppe Cipriani and Steven C. Witkoff and in 2006, the label was named one of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund's top ten finalists.

In 2008, the designers created one of the year's most eagerly anticipated wedding dresses - that of Coleen Mcloughlin, who was marrying England soccer star Wayne Rooney in a beautiful Italian ceremony.
