Two years ago, Juan Diego Flórez had to dash off and sing at the Met just minutes after the birth of his first child. Second time round he could take it easy. He writes on Facebook:
"We are blessed and forever grateful to have witnessed yet again the miracle of birth of our second little angel, Lucia Stella.
She was born today, 1st of January, in the loving and calm atmosphere of our home in Pesaro, Italy.
With love and thanks to all for your kind support and good wishes,
Julia and Juan Diego Flórez"
