FYI, Justin’s brother Alexandre (Sacha) Trudeau, who’s a documentary film maker, also has a new daughter. Gala Simone Trudeau was born Dec. 24, 2008, joining big brother Pierre, 2.

Yeah, I was wondering how come CBB didn’t report on Alexander’s daughter who was born in December (another Christmas baby for the Trudeaus!). Now both brothers have a son and daughter each, and quite close in age all around!
