With Linda Evangelista about to take the stand Monday for the second day, lawyers reached a settlement in the nasty child-support case between the supermodel and French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, who's now married to Salma Hayek.
The terms of the surprise deal were not immediately known, according to the New York Post, which first reported the settlement. Outside the courthouse Monday, Francois-Henri Pinault's lawyer, David Aronson told reporters, "Everybody's glad for the sake and the benefit of the child that it's done."
A rep for Evangelista had no comment. After court Evangelista and Pinault, who had barely made eye contact during the trial, were seen talking to each other.

And the claims are flying.
The lawyer for supermodel Linda Evangelista, who is seeking $46,000 in monthly child-support payments for her 5-year-old son Augie with French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, reportedly asserted in a Manhattan family courtroom Thursday that Pinault "suggested she terminate the pregnancy."
Speaking in court, Pinault – since 2009 the husband of Salma Hayek – said he was "not involved in the decision" to have the child, but assured Evangelista he would "recognize the baby," reports New York's Daily News.
His lawyer later denied the claim that Pinault suggested the pregnancy be terminated.

Salma Hayek's husband has broken his silence in the big-money child support dispute over his child with supermodel Linda Evangelista.
François-Henri Pinault is refuting claims by Evangelista's lawyer that the French businessman has been "paying zero" toward raising the now-4-year-old boy. Evangelista is seeking $46,000 a month in support.

Salma Hayek's husband may soon be digging deep into his pockets for child support – $46,000 a month deep, if supermodel Linda Evangelista has her way.
A month after it was revealed that Hayek's husband, François-Henri Pinault, fathered a son with Evangelista, the veteran cover girl filed her support order Monday in Manhattan Family Court.
"That would probably be the largest support order in the history of the family court," support magistrate Matthew Troy, who is expected to mediate the decision, told the New York Post.

Salma Hayek's daughter, Valentina Paloma Pinault, 3, has a second half-brother.
According to court papers recently filed by supermodel Linda Evangelista, her son, Augustin James, 4, was fathered by Hayek's husband, François-Henri Pinault. Hayek and Pinault wed in 2009, but dated since 2006, around the time Evangelista got pregnant. (Pinault has two other children – a son and a daughter – from his previous marriage, which ended in divorce in 2004.)
Now Evangelista has filed a petition seeking support from the French businessman, 49.
"In the filing, it says the child 'was born out of wedlock to [petitioner] Linda Evangelista, 46, and that [Pinault] acknowledged [her] allegation,' " a source familiar with the filing tells PEOPLE. "It says, 'It is decided that Pinault is the father of [Evangelista's son], Augustin James.' "
