Joran van der Sloot now a father
Joran van der Sloot's (27) wife Leidy (25) gave birth to a little girl named Dushi Trudie. It was a difficult delivery, but both mother and daughter are doing well, De Telegraaf reports. On Monday van der Sloot was not yet aware of the baby news, according to RTL. Leidy chose the name Dushi, which means "sweet" in Papiamento. Van der Sloot chose the girl's second name, Trudie, after his grandmother. Joran van der Sloot is currently imprisoned in the infamous Challapalca prison in Peru. In 2012 he was sentenced to 28 years in prison for the murder of Stephany Flores in May 2010. According to his lawyer, Van der Sloot has been on a hunger strike since late August in protest against his transfer to Challapalca prison.
