The Swedish Royal Family Gushes Over New Addition
The Swedish royal family was quick to gush about the new addition to their family. Who can blame them at such an exciting time in their lives? “Today is a day of great happiness and thankfulness,” King Carl and Queen Silvia of Sweden said after the birth of their beloved granddaughter. They continued, “We are filled with great joy.”
Christopher’s mother, Eva-Maria O’Neill, also joined in the doting-over-new-baby fun. The new grandmother’s official statement read: “I am thrilled and very excited to have a new granddaughter and I can’t wait to meet her! I send my son Christopher and Princess Madeleine all my love and my heartfelt congratulations to their first child.”
Though no name or pictures have been released just yet, we are sure the little baby will be a stunner. Congratulations to the royal couple!
