Named Guilia Florentina Alessandra, De Rossi and husband Jules Ledesma–a former Negros Occidental congressman–welcomed their firstborn into the world at a San Juan City hospital, and nicknamed her Fiore. Meaning flower in Italian, the baby’s pet name is a nod to De Rossi’s father’s roots.
The couple had earlier said that De Rossi’s unexpected pregnancy was a wonderful and “miraculous” blessing since they had been trying to conceive for nearly two decades.

De Rossi’s sister Alessandra, excitedly shared the first photo of mother and daughter on Instagram with the caption:

“This is the most beautiful photo for life! Little Fiore and tears of joy in my sister’s eyes. Almost 20 years in the making! Miracles happen everyday, and this one is the best! Congratulations @assuntaledesma @julesledesma and of course, to the new granny na mas oa pa sa naganak, @ermatsko. Thank you Lord.”

According entertainment columnist and talent manager Jun Lalin, De Rossi delivered Fiore via elective cesarean section at 38 weeks due to her delicate condition known as myoma uteri. Fiore weighed 5 lbs 12 oz.
It was in May when Assunta revealed she was carrying a “miracle” baby, 16 years after marrying Ledesma.
In September, Assunta posted how extremely challenging her pregancy has been.
“It’s tough to be experiencing shortness of breath, pregnancy rhinitis plus I’m claustrophobic pa (also). Mabuti at napakabait ni bagets, hindi ako binibigyan ng problema (It’s a good thing my baby is so good.  She didn’t give me any problems.). Ang swerte-swerte ko (I am so lucky)! Everything’s good kaya (that’s why) smile pa rinKonti na lang (Just a little more),” she wrote on Instagram.

Assunta and Ledesma were wed in civil rites in San Carlos City in December 2002 and had their church wedding at Sanctuario de San Antonio in Forbes Park,  Makati City in March 2004.
