A new Royal Baby has entered the world.
Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden gave birth to a baby boy at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, the palace has now confirmed.
Prince Daniel, the boy’s very proud father, simply could not hold back his emotions in confirming the arrival of the couple’s baby prince, either, who was born at 8 pounds and who measured 22 inches.
With as tears pouring down his face, Daniel told reporters tonight that he and Victoria had kept the baby’s gender a secret and that he could not be happier to welcome a little boy.
Daniel also revealed that he cut the umbilical cord and assisted during the birth.
"They are doing great and have been really well-cared for," Daniel told the press. "I have not had time to feel just yet how it feels to be a father of two.
"But it feels good so far!"
The name of newborn prince will be revealed on Thursday.
He is now third in line to the throne, behind older sister, Princess Estelle, who turned four years old in February.
We send our very best wishes to this newly-expanded family and we also send a early message of congratulations to Victoria’s younger brother, Prince Carl Philip.
He and wife Princess Sofia are expecting their first child next month.
