Denmark’s Princess Marie & Prince Joachim Welcomes Baby No. 2

Denmark’s Prince Joachim brought his sons, Prince Henrik, Prince Nikolai, and Prince Felix, to Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen to see their new baby sister on Wednesday (January 25). The boys’ uncle Prince Frederik and his wife Princess Mary also showed up for a visit.

French-born Princess Marie gave birth to a baby girl on Tuesday at the hospital. The baby weighed in at 6.45 lbs. and was born at 8:27 am (CET). The baby’s name will not be revealed until after her christening ceremony.

Prince Joachim, who attended the birth of his daughter, held onto Henrik’s hand as they posed for photographs. The 1 1/2-year-old is his child with Princess Marie. Prince Nikolai, 12, and Prince Felix, 9, are his sons with ex-wife Alexandra.

The prince must be really happy. Last year he admitted, “With three boys already, I would like a little girl”.

    Hi 🙂

    There’s a mistake in the article:

    The uncle (and husband of princess Mary) is not Henrik, it’s Frederik 🙂
    Henrik is the grandfather of the newborn baby 😉

    In my opinion it’s sooooo silly to keep the childrens names a secret in that royal family.

      It’s a sweet tradition; I don’t think it’s silly at all.

      I think waiting until the christening to officially name
      the baby is a sweet tradition. Early American settlers (1600-1800) often referred to their children 3yrs of age and younger as “sister” or “brother”. Because life was so hard on the praries, babies and young
      Children often didn’t make it to the age of 3 (whether it was suffocation,disease,fire etc). Once the child turned 3, the
      children were officially given and called by name. It was believed that if
      the child didn’t have an official name & died, the mourning process would be easier. (which obviously proved to be untrue.)

      There’s another mistake as well. Little Prince Henrik was born 4 May 2009. Making him 2 years, 8 months, 19 days older than his sister.

    for me is that not a sweet tradition, just silly.
