Cool kid! Bee, 34 years old, updated her followers on Instagram with several precious photos. One of them was a smiley baby sporting sunglasses.
Bee wrote, captioning the photos: “One Month With Oliver,” which led to a family shot of Bee walking outside with Francesco, Oliver, and Francesco, with the autumn leaves visible in the background.
Another photo shows the baby happily tucked into, and another one showing Bee cuddling him in a sailboat topie.
Oliver was captured by his proud parents mid-yawn in one snap.
Comments have poured in from Bee’s friends, including Derek Blasberg, Huma Abedin, designer Joseph Altuzarra, Valentino designer Pierpaolo Piccioli, Architectural Digest editor-in-chief Amy Atley, W editor-in-chief Sara Moonves, and Bumble chief brand officer Selby Drummond.

Sozzani, who was the the editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia starting in 1988, served in the role until she assed away from lung cancer in December 2016 at the age of 66.
Bee wrote captions for the photos: “One month with Oliver.”

She and Wintour shared a longtime close friendship, and Bee and Francesco are thought to have met through their mothers as children.
Bee’s initial post about Oliver’s birth, earlier this month, was immediately flooded by congratulatory remarks from several of her celebrity friends. Sarah Jessica Parker wrote, ‘Wow !!!! I got chills I’m so happy for you all. Xxx’
Katy Perry also joined the celebration of Oliver’s birth by commenting on that she has a birthday in common with Francesco and Bee’s infant son.
“Omg! I love my twin birthday.” The singer sang, “Congratulations!”
Bee has worked in a backstage role at Broadway for many years. She was also sent sweet messages by musical stars Ben Platt from Dear Evan Hansen and Josh Groban.
Unsurprisingly, a number of high-profile figures from within the fashion world were also quick to offer their congratulations in the comments section, including designers Zac Posen, Joseph Altuzarra, and Jennifer Meyer — the jewelry designer ex-wife of actor Tobey Maguire.

A high-fashion family: Francesco Carrozzini and Bee are seen at the 2019 Met Gala
Bee was almost 4 months pregnant when it became public that Francesco was having her first child. She married Francesco in 2 wedding ceremonies. The first took place at her mother’s sprawling Long Island home, and the second was in her husband’s hometown of Portofino, Italy.
Francesco and Bee were first to share the information. Then, Bee and her husband took a photo of Bee with a baby bump while on their romantic getaway to Portofino.
But despite being seen on a number of occasions with her growing stomach, Bee did not officially confirm her pregnancy until several weeks later, when she posted a silhouetted photo of her bump on Instagram, along with a blue heart in the caption — teasing that she was expecting a baby boy.
Celebrities, socialites and designers sent well wishes to Bee.
The Met Gala was September’s highlight for her, and she was radiant in bright turquoise, highlighting her bump.
Bee, although she wasn’t accompanied by her husband to the event, had some good company in Elizabeth Cordry and Charles Shaffer her brother. The Cordrys have two daughters together, Ella & Caroline.
Anna, 71, was also in attendance at the event, which she hosts every year, and which was postponed this year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
This photo from Bee Shaffer confirms her pregnancy news.

Francesco and Bee met their parents through Anna and Franca. This was when they began a friendship, which then turned into romance. Rumours about the couple’s relationship surfaced in 2016.
The duo began to speculate about their relationship in October 2016 when they both attended Francesco’s film about his mother.
Friends: Anna and Francesco had a strong relationship. Franca, Francesco’s maternal grandmother, was Vogue Italia’s editor-in–chief until the end.
Francesco and Bee announced their engagement two months later in March 2017. This was just a few months after the bride-to-be wore her ring on the Met Gala red carpet.
Officially, they tied the knot at Anna’s Long Island home on July 7. Then, Anna flew from New York to Italy on the same day to be married again in Portofino the next morning.
Bee chose a white wedding dress for the ceremonies. She did however choose a different look depending on where she was getting married. They included a classic silhouette to say her first ‘I do,’ then a more summer-friendly Dolce & Gabbana alternative for her second time tying the knot.
The details of the weddings were not revealed. Bee refused to make her nuptials public in her mother’s mag, like so many of the high-society women who have made this decision in the past.
It is understood that the couple implemented a strict no-social media rule at their weddings, echoing the same regulations that Anna insists upon at the Met Gala — although those restrictions have become increasingly lax over the years.
Francesco, Bee and their lives have been kept very private. Three years after their wedding, Bee only shared a handful of photos on social media, one of which was a funny photo of Bee hamming things up for her camera, that she posted last September, his 38th birthday.
