Samantha Hoopes gave birth to her first child, son George William Palella, only a few months ago, but she and her husband Salvatore Palella celebrated George’s second birthday on August 29. The Sports Illustrated model shared a photo of her son’s birthday party on Instagram.
She shared a slideshow of family images from her son’s dinosaur-themed birthday celebration. Her newborn daughter, however, was not included in the photos. The parents were overjoyed, and George appeared to be enthralled by the dinosaur decorations he adored. Hoopes wrote a touching note for her kid in the caption. He fulfilled her desire of becoming a mother, she said, and he taught her many lessons since he was her first child.

The birthday boy’s father also took to Instagram and posted a carousel. He kept the message in the caption short and sweet, emphasizing his love for his son.
Samantha Hoopes’ Wedding
Hoopes proposed to Palella in a rose-filled parlor in 2018, and the two became engaged in 2018. They met in the small village of Portofino on the Italian Riviera in 2017 and hit it off right away. Palella had different plans for the couple’s first anniversary, which they had returned to where they met.
Palella got down on one knee in the opulent Bulgari Hote Milano, surrounded by 381 flowers, reflecting the number of days they had been together, and asked Hoopes to be his happily ever after. The couple posted photographs of the proposal on Instagram, and it was quite stunning.
Samantha Hoopes’ Daughter
Hoopes and Palella received their first child, a daughter, in August of this year, following the birth of George. Despite the fact that she did not publicly announce the birth of her child, she used Instagram to share the news of her husband’s firm, Helbiz, going public, and she quietly dropped the news of her baby’s arrival.
Helbiz was the first micromobility startup to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NASDAQ). She raved in the caption about how hard her husband worked and overcome hurdles and obstacles that only behind-the-scenes people like her knew about.

She went on to say that he motivated her to believe that everything was possible, and that this was only the beginning. She also commended him for being a great role model for their children and concluded by expressing her pride in being a mother and wife. She later shared a photo with her daughter, in which the two of them were dressed alike in the same attire. She revealed that she did not hire a babysitter and was a full-time mother in order to devote her complete attention to her children.
And, like any other mother, she stated that she battled with dividing her attention between her two children after the birth of her second child. Hoopes, on the other hand, counseled mothers to try their best, even if it isn’t always ideal.
