Congratulations to Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel on the arrival of their second child, a baby boy. Sweden's newest prince was born on Mar. 2 at Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm weighing 8 lb, 1 ounce. The proud father, who was present during the birth, made the announcement during a press conference on Wednesday evening.
An official notice was then posted on the Royal Family's website, which reads, "The Marshal of the Realm is delighted to announce that HRH Crown Princess Victoria gave birth to a son on Wednesday, March 2, at 08.28 pm. Both mother and child are in good health." The child's name will reportedly be announced tomorrow morning.
During the press conference, Prince Daniel revealed that the couple's four-year-old daughter Princess Estelle was sleeping and doesn't know she is finally a big sister. When asked how it feels to be a father of two, the royal said, "I have had no time to think about how it feels to be a father of two, but it clearly feels good."
The baby's grandparents King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia have yet to make a statement on the arrival of their fourth grandchild.
The palace shared news of Victoria's pregnancy back in September, saying, "Their Royal Highnesses Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel are happy to announce that The Crown Princess is expecting their second child. The birth is expected to take place in March of 2016."
