Mazeltov !
Explanation:
If I were to translate this in North American English, this is how I would translate it, with a yiddish word which is also used at weddings.
The Italian phrase is used as a greeting to newlyweds at weddings as an incitement to be happy and procreate! It means good wishes and male children, to which it has recently been added \"and femmine\", that is \"female children\".
This is the literal translation, you will have to find an appropriate rendering in English.
