Another genetically and financially blessed baby is headed this way.

Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova is expecting her fourth child and first with boyfriend Antoine Arnault, CEO of luxury men's footwear maker Berluti.

Arnault, who is also the son of LVMH founder Bernard Anault (so luxury goods run in the family), announced the news on Facebook yesterday. 

"Giving a little brother or sister to Natalia's 3 wonderful children is something we wanted so much: AND NOW IT'S HAPPENING! :)))" wrote the very thrilled-sounding Frenchman. 

"We're going to have our first baby next year!!! #4 for her but #1 for me... I'm a little stressed! She was tired the first 3 months but is fine now..."

Arnault added: "I hope he or she gets Mommy's looks (and beautiful heart!!!) and Daddy's sense of humor!!! Pleaaaaase not the other way around!!! :))))"

He and Vodianova currently live in Paris.

The 31-year-old beauty separated from husband Justin Portman, whom she lived with on an estate in England that may be familiar to Vogue readersthough not as familiar as the former lady of the house, who has posed for the mag countless times—in June 2011.

They were married for 10 years and are parents to sons Lucas and Viktor, 11 and 6, and daughter Neva, 7.

Vodianova, who grew up in poverty in the former Soviet Union and has pretty much lived a real-life Cinderella tale at least on the surface, made the No. 3 spot on Forbes' 2012 list of top-earning models with $8.6 million.

Over the years, she has posed for brands such as Guerlain, Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, L'Oréal, David Yurman, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Versace, Diane von Fürstenberg, Chanel, Guerlain and Etam.
