Meghan Markle’s BFF Misha Nonoo and her oil tycoon husband Michael Hess were spotted boarding a private helicopter in New York City for a weekend getaway.
Exclusive pictures obtained by DailyMail.com on Friday show Nonoo, pushing a stroller, and Hess preparing to board the chopper with their one-year-old son, Leo.
The family was accompanied by two women, presumably the nannies, and were believed to be traveling to East Hampton. Employees were seen loading the family’s luggage into the helicopter.
This is the first time Nonoo has been seen cince she announced she was pregnant with a baby girl back in April.

This is the first time Nonoo has been spotted publicly since announcing that she and Hess are expecting their second child
On April 6, the British-Bahraini fashion designer posted a snap on Instagram of her blossoming baby bump with a caption reading: ‘My journey into motherhood has been one of the most rewarding and beautiful experiences of my life.’
In the same post, Nonoo said she was celebrating her growing family with the launch of her new maternity line.
‘To celebrate, we’re launching a new collection of maternity styles, inspired by the wardrobe heroes I missed wearing the most during my pregnancy. Effortless pieces designed to be worn before, during, and after pregnancy—this is maternity wear for whatever the future has in store,’ she touted.
‘Whether you’re already a Mum or an expecting Mum-to-be, I hope these pieces bring you the comfort, style, and ease you need to tackle one of life’s most incredible experiences.’
While the couple has not publicly announced the arrival of their daughter, photos captured Friday from the jet-bridge suggest that Nonoo, who no longer appears to have a baby bump, has given birth.
In May 2020, amid the coronavirus pandemic, the designer, known for her eponymous clothing line, was spotted returning to her Manhattan residence just hours after she told fans she was ‘not going anywhere’ and was working from home.
Exclusive photos showed the doorman pushing a luggage cart loaded up with bags and boxes inside the building. A nanny in a face mask was carrying a L.L. Bean baby tote bag monogrammed with baby Leo’s initials.
Both employees were seen retrieving the items from the trunk of Nonoo’s packed SUV.

Nonoo and Hess were married in a ceremony in Rome in September 2019 that was attended by Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.
The pair had their first child, Leo, last March, less than a year after the Duke and Duchess welcomed their son Archie in May 2019.
Nonoo revealed she was expecting baby number two just weeks after Markle and Prince Harry revealed to Oprah Winfrey that they are also expecting a baby girl later this year. Their daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, was born on June 4.
Nonoo has been close to Markle for many years and is rumored to have set up the former actress on her first date with the Duke of Sussex in 2016, although this has never been confirmed.
During her first pregnancy, Misha told People, that the Duchess of Sussex had been sharing her advice about becoming a first-time mother.
The designer revealed: ‘As with all friendships, you share lots of tips and everything.’

Markle has continued to show her support for Nonoo by publicly wearing her designs. She donned the famous ‘Boyfriend shirt’ for her first appearance alongside Prince Harry, and she wore another of Nonoo’s designs for her final day of meetings in the UK before she jetted off to Canada earlier this year.
Nonoo, who worked with the Duchess on her Smart Works charity line, opened up to DailyMail.com earlier this year about her friendship with the royal.
Reflecting on the experience of working together, Nonoo described Markle as ‘the ultimate professional’ and very ‘considerate’ of the women the collection was helping.
‘It was such an ideal, incredibly easy collaboration,’ she said. ‘It was, from start to finish, wonderful, thoughtful, considerate, as is she.’
