Can I ask a bit of an unrelated question. I just went to that Yahoo! link and it brought up a question. Is calling her "Princess Christina" really correct? I had always thought that the English translation of Infanta Christina was something along the lines of "Child of Spain" or something close to that. I was just curious.

On another note, this is such happy news. I have always liked them as a couple...they just seem SO in love.

Hi, Megknight!
To speak correctly, Cristina and Elena are not "Princesses" in title. Only the heir of the throne (Felipe) and his wife (Letizia) are named "Princes"; i.e. the Prince and Princess of Asturias. The other sons and daughters of the King and Queen of Spain are named "Infantes" and the English translation would just be... "Infants"!...
By the way, neither Cristina's, nor Elena's children are given any title. That's a specific rule of the Spanish Royal House, as Spain has not a Court...

Diez minutos has a piece about Cristina's pregnancy
http://www.diezminutos.wanadoo.es/re...es/2507_1.html (in Spanish)

*I tried to translate it, any corrections are welcomed

Cristina: 'We would like it to be a girl'

After three boys, the dukes of Palma would like the baby they expect for the next summer would be a girl. For that, they could move to a bigger house that can accomodate the big family they have formed.

When leaving the Fundación La Caixa, where she works, the Infanta, smiling and happy, said that the news of her new pregnancy is "a joy for all the family"

On the last 12/9, a spokesperson for the Zarzuela Palace announced oficially the fourth pregnancy of Infanta Cristina

On that day, the Infanta attended her work and afterwords, she went to pick her kids up at school.

Cristina and Iñaki had already given the news to Juan, Pablo and Miguel about a new sibling arriving at the beginning of next summer

After three boys, the dukes of Palma would like the baby they expect for the next summer would be a girl. That confirmed by doña Cristina when asked while leaving her workplace

It will be born at the beginning of the next summer

"To me and my husband it would be fantastic to have a girl, but, if not, there is no problem"

"Your Highness, how's the pregnancy going?"
"I'm feeling very well and the pregnancy is going wonderfully."

"When the baby will be born?"
"At the beginning of the next summer."

"Have you thought about names yet?"
"No we haven't"

"You seem very happy."
"It's natural. I'm happy, my husband and all my family are very happy."

"The boys already know that they'll have a sibling?"
"Yes they do, we've told them."

I would love it if it was twins. Cause there's doble the chance of getting a girl. Plus, the Spanish Royal Family would be delighted as the parents to be.

but I say that if is a girl they would put Cristina Sofia and if is a boy I say that they would put him Carlos Ignacio

Great names!
Sofia is a wonderful name, but I love Cristina.
And I prefer Ignacio than Carlos.
Btw, where have you heard that?

They make such a beautiful family. If it's a girl it wouldn't surprise me if they perhaps named her Sofia or Mercedes (after the King's mother Maria de las Mercedes)
