Sofia, who is the daughter of singing superstar Lionel Richie, previously discussed her and Elliot's excitement about welcoming their first baby. She wrote: "Our hearts are filled with so much love! So thankful for all of your support! Can't wait for this next chapter of life."

Announcing the news in British Vogue, the publication shared a photoshoot of Sofia showing off her growing baby bump. She told the outlet: "I found out very, very early. [Elliot] is such a sweet guy, he always wants to protect my emotions and expectations, so he kind of sat me down and said, ‘If these are negative, don’t be upset.

"Our moment will come.’ When we turned over all three tests at the same time, they were all positive."

Sofia also told Vogue: "We both really thought it was a boy, so it was a true shock. My dream in life is to have a daughter [though], and Elliot is really excited for a girl too."

Sophia married her beau Elliot in a lavish ceremony in the French Riviera. The pair's star-studded nuptials caused a stir on social media.

The ceremony was held at the luxury Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in France and was attended by numerous A-listers, including Paris Hilton, Cameron Diaz, and Sofia's famous sister Nicole Richie.

For the lavish wedding, rehearsal dinner, and afterparty, Sofia opted for three different dresses. Ahead of the big day she had spoken of how she came to decide on her style of dresses, as she said that she initially wanted to wear a 'princess dress' but ultimately decided to keep it simple.

Speaking in a video posted online, Sofia explained: "I'm keeping the makeup for the entire weekend super simple and clean. I just want it to feel timeless: I don't want to look back in like 20 years and be like, 'She's a glamazon.'"

Sofia and Elliot announced that they were an item back in 2021, with Elliot popping the question a year later while on a romantic getaway in Hawaii. Elliot is an entrepreneur and CEO of indie record label 10K Projects in LA, and his father is Lucian Grainge, the chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group.

Prior to tying the knot with Elliot, Sofia was in a relationship with reality TV star Scott Disick, and the pair were together for three years before splitting in 2020.
