  • Description

    FILM ACTRESS SOPHIA LOREN TODAY (SATURDAY) HELD A PRESS CONFERENCE AT GENEVA'S CANTONAL HOSPITAL TO ALLOW SEVERAL HUNDRED REPORTERS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS THEIR FIRST CLOSE LOOK AT HER WEEK-OLD SON CARLO. THE 34-YEAR-OLD STAR AND HER FILM PRODUCER HUSBAND, CARLO PONTI, SPENT 45 MINUTES IN A SMALL LECTURE THEATRE AT THE SWISS HOSPITAL AS THE PRESSMEN FIRED QUESTIONS AND FILMED THE BABY.

    MISS LOREN, PROPPED UP IN AN IRON-FORMED HOSPITAL BED, CRADLED THE BABY CARLO IN HER ARMS DURING THE HECTIC CONFERENCE.

    THE STAR TOLD PRESSMEN THE BIRTH OF HER SON WOULD CHANGE HER LIFE COMPLETELY. SHE WOULD NOW LIKE TO HAVE MORE CHILDREN.

    THE BABY, DARK-HAIRED, BLUE-EYED AND REPORTED TO BE DOING WELL, WAS DELIVERED BY CAESARIAN OPERATION AFTER MONTHS OF SECLUSION AND REST FOR THE ACTRESS. IT IS THE COUPLE'S FIRST CHILD, AFTER ELEVEN YEARS OF MARRIAGE.

    MISS LOREN SAID THE BABY WOULD BE CHRISTENED IN GENEVA, BUT NO DATE HAD BEEN SET. LIKE HIS PARENTS, WHO ARE BOTH NATURALISED FRENCH, CARLO JUNIOR HAS FRENCH NATIONALITY.

    SIGNOR PONTI SAID WORK ON HIS NEXT FILM - "GIOVANNA" - IN WHICH MISS LOREN WOULD STAR, WOULD BEGIN IN JULY.
