December 19, 2022 will always play a role in the life of the winter sports dream couple Pellegrino and Laurent, because Alexis saw the light of day.
Aosta – For a winter sports dream couple, the run-up to Christmas brought a special gift, one that Amazon couldn't deliver.
According to legend, it was more of a stork.
The Olympic silver medalist and world champion Federico Pellegrino and his Greta Laurent have had a child.
Alexis was born on December 19, 2022.
Pellegrino, the twelve-time individual World Cup winner in cross-country skiing, showed his hand, that of his son Alexis and that of his Greta on Instagram.
The couple married in 2021, and now their son was born.
"Around 7:02 Alexis came, you are our greatest joy," they wrote under the photo.

The two cross-country skiers kept their fans up to date for weeks and months.
Greta's belly grew and grew and grew.
It didn't turn out to be a Christ Child after all, the "fear" was already in the room.
While Pellegrino won Olympic silver in the 2018 sprint in Pyeongchang and 2022 in Beijing and even gold at the Nordic World Ski Championships in Lahti, Laurent was less successful.
The two Italians can now look forward to their offspring and are congratulated by the winter sports world.
Congratulations from the winter sports world - Pellegrino recently won ahead of Klaebo
The 32-year-old recently celebrated a great sprint success in the World Cup with a sensational sprint against Norway's superstar Klaebo and can now thank many familiar faces with his 30-year-old wife.
The German biathlete Denise Hermann-Wick, the French ex-biathlete Martin Fourcade or Pellegrino's competitor Iivo Niskanen, who also recently became a father, are just a few examples of many well-wishers.
Will Alexis be able to repeat dad's successes?
What is certain is that he grew up in a sports-loving family.
Another winter sports dream couple also has every reason to be happy - because they both deliver top performances.
