    Congratulations! I wonder exactly how you pronounce her name. People’s website states the birthdate as May 21 in the evening.

      the name’s French: you pronounce it Lee-O-nee. Personally I like it!

    congrats to Monica and her husband on the arrival of their second daughter Leonie god bless the family

    Other sites show an accent mark over the first e, that’s why I wondered if it’s pronounced LAY-o-nee.

      It’s Léonie not Leonie, so yes that’s how it’s pronounced, not Lee-oh-nee!

        No, Marylin is right, it’s Lay-o-nee. I’m french, so I’m sure of it, unless the parents decide they will pronunce it another way, but that’s not likely.

          that’s what I was saying, not Lee-oh-nee, so Lay-o-nee…
