Monaco Gets Its Own (Jewish) Royal Baby

Finally, a royal baby frenzy we can get in on!

Mazel tov to Monaco royal Charlotte Casiraghi and comedian Gad Elmaleh on the birth of their son, Raphael.

The Morrocan-born French funny man and the daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco have been together since 2011. Rumors of a pregnancy started flying in August, when it was reported that the two were engaged. And boy do they make a cute pair.

Elmaleh recently told People magazine that his baby mama is “a smart and very intelligent girl who has a lot of humour” and makes him the “happiest man.”

Adding: “You can talk about philosophy and make stupid jokes with her.”

This is Casiraghi’s first child, while Elmaleh has a 12-year-old son named Noé from his relationship with actress Anne Brochet.

But royal enthusiasts shouldn’t get too excited about seeing a Jewish ruler of Monaco any time soon. As the second child of Caroline and the late Italian businessman Stephano Casiraghi, Charlotte is fifth in line for the throne.

But still — Grace Kelly’s granddaughter just had a Jewish baby. Win.
