It’s a boy! Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia of Sweden have welcomed their third child. The royal couple’s baby boy was born on Friday, March 26, at Danderyd Hospital in Stockholm. The Swedish Royal Court released a statement that read: “The Office of the Marshal is pleased to announce that HRH Princess Sofia on Friday, March 26, 2021 at 11.19 gave birth to a healthy and prosperous son at Danderyd Hospital. Both mother and child are well.”
In a statement, the proud dad of three said, “We are so happy and grateful to be able to welcome our third son to our family. Princess Sofia and I, and his two big brothers, have all been longing for this day. And now we are looking forward to getting to know this new little member of our family.”
Sofia and Carl Philip, who wed in 2015, are also parents to sons Prince Alexander, four, and Prince Gabriel, three. The Princess’ pregnancy was announced in December. “We are happy and expectant and look forward to welcoming our third child, a sibling to Prince Alexander and Prince Gabriel. A new little member of our family,” the royal couple said.
The newborn Prince is seventh in line to the Swedish throne. Sofia and Carl Philip’s sons were removed from the Swedish Royal House back in 2019. At the time, Sofia and Carl Philip said, “We see this as positive as Alexander and Gabriel will have freer choices in life.”
