King Jigme Khesar and Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan share first photos of their baby boy

By Zach Harper

Meet Bhutan's new prince! The little boy was born to King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan in March, and they've just shared the first photos of him.

While his mom and dad haven't revealed his name yet, they took to Instagram to share gorgeous photos of him that were taken in the gardens at their Lingkana Palace in Thimphu, Bhutan on May 29. They're being released to coincide with Queen Jetsun's 30th birthday on June 4.

In the gorgeous set of photos, the mom and dad are seen with their newborn son and firstborn son, Gyalsey Jigme Namgyel, 4. The baby's dad holds him and gazes lovingly into his son's face while the King's elder son and Jetsun look at the camera.

The second photo shows Jetsun holding her son, who appears to be cooing in her arms. The third shows the King holding his baby, while his eldest son smiles at something off camera. The two are seen giggling in a fourth image, and the final photo in the series shows the whole family together on a settee, marvelling over the new addition.

It's not unusual for the Bhutan royals to wait to announce a baby's name. Gyalsey Jigme Namgyel's name wasn't revealed until two months after he was born, and that was done in a Buddhist ceremony. The same will likely happen with the couple's younger son.

King Jigme and Queen Jetsun married in 2011. Jigme has been King of the Himalayan country since 2006, two years after his father, Jigme Singye Wangchuck, abdicated the throne.
