I am shocked!!!

The Luxembourg Royals appear to be a modern family, and it's glad to see the young couple has the support of their parents. They will need all the love, money, and guidance that any parents-to-be need. I imagine Tessy Antony will now be a celebrity in Luxembourg.

Well at least they will not face the tremendous financial pressure that comes with having a child at such a young age.

Josephine-Charlotte's ashes are probably spinning around in her urn

In www.rtl.lu, is a link in the called tv:place royale, but I don't see none, you can tell me if you have seen some video of place royale at some time, by the way, in the date 21 of September of the 2005, there is a video and it leaves that of louis a little.
The truth, is that it has surprised me, I cannot believe it that the prince Louis is father, so young, and the Dukes are very young to be grandparents, if they will be it in March, it will be of 3 months, then the family will already know it for already 2 months,
But are not they planned to not marry?, then they will live each one in their respective houses and after the birth it will already be seen,

Oh god, I'm only a year older than Louis and I could never imagine myself having a child at this point in my life. Nonetheless, congratulations (depends on how the both of them view it) to the couple.

*insert sound of Kara's jaw dropping*

Wow. I mean, just....wow.
Uh, congratulations? I hope he realizes what a huge step this is in his life, and that he's pretty young to be taking it. :(

I think that it takes a lot of maturity for a 19-year-old and a 20-year-old to stand up for their actions in such a manner. There are "easier" ways out of the situation, that many others their age might have taken if they had found themselves in the same situation. Accepting and acknowledging their actions by keeping the results, says to me that they are adults who are aware that sometimes actions have serious consequences, and are willing to face that.

I've been told that raising a child is never easy, and I don't think that is something that is different whether you are 20 or 30 when you get them. These two have the support of their families, and each other.

I suppose all that is left is wishing them the best of luck.

Apparently, Tessy Anthony has been in Kosovo with the Luxembourg army. I post a picture (I put a red bar on her) and a text in German. Those who can speak the language, please do a summary.

Source

Quote:
Nach vier Monaten Friedensmission kehrten am Donnerstagabend die 23 Luxemburger Teilnehmer des Kfor XIII/15-Kontingents aus dem Kosovo zurück.
Eine Woche früher als geplant hatte man sich am 17. März dieses Jahres in den Kosovo begeben müssen, um die dort stationierten Soldaten der Luxemburger Armee bei den schlimmen Unruhen vom 15. März zwischen Albanern und Serben zu unterstützen. Die 17 freiwilligen Soldaten und sechs Vorgesetzten der Kfor XIII/15-Truppe waren in Mitrovica im "Camp Belvédère" untergebracht, von wo aus sie der Bevölkerung Hilfeleistung boten, Patrouille fuhren und für die Sicherheit sorgten. Bei ihrer Ankunft auf Herrenberg am Donnerstag wurden die Soldaten von ihren Familienangehörigen sowie den beiden Lieutenants-Colonels Gaston Reinig und Roland Bombardella empfangen.
In seiner Begrüßungsansprache dankte Gaston Reinig den Soldaten für ihr freiwilliges Engagement, welches sie auch dann nicht in Frage stellten, als die Situation im Krisengebiet zunehmends gefährlicher wurde. Auch den Familienangehörigen galt der Dank des Lieutenant-Colonels für die wichtige moralische Unterstützung der Soldaten aus der Heimat. Die letzten Dankesworte galten dem "Etat Major" sowie den Ausbildern der Kfor-Mannschaft auf Herrenberg, dank deren Hilfe die Friedensmission unter den bestmöglichen Bedingungen hat stattfinden können.
Dem Kfor XIII/15-Kontingent gehörten an: Erster Leutnant Georges Campill, Adjutant Frank Schintgen, die Sergeanten Frank Antony, Jean-Claude Betz und Steve Van Hille, Caporal Joseph Rinnen sowie die freiwilligen Soldaten Laurent Adam, Tessy Antony, Joël Back, Mike Berkes, Jonathan Charpentier, Christian Colbach, Vincent Corti, Dan Dillenbourg, Andy Ewen, Steve Guelff, Pascal Koenig, Dany Nahrgang, Mike Petesch, Georges Praus, Gordon Simon, Gilles Weidert und Sacha Weckering.

Something about the third child.....remember, Prince Jean had a baby out of wedlock too [although he was not as young as Louis]. Must be a middle-child thing in that family.
I feel bad for him.....maybe I'm just cynical, but I'm picturing hasty marriages and divorce papers, and the loss of a right to the throne. Of course, they could be madly in love. But how likely?
They also could have been a bit more careful.

H! My thoughts exactly. If someone wanted to be very, very cynical though, one might think that by getting pregnant the girl has ensured herself a slice of that 5 billion € fortune of Henri's... It's also kinda sad in a sense that the child will always weight down the mother, but have little effect on the future of Louis himself. As long as they are not married and he in custody of the child (for some reason I'm thinking the kid-to-come as a boy), he will have the same freedom as always. Let's just hope his siblings have learned something :o

And oh, best of luck for all of them.

Probably! Their daughter's having a baby by a prince of one of the richest royal families in the world! *sigh*

I wouldn't bet on that being the reaction. For all we know they may not even like Prince Louis.

It takes two to make a baby, and to imply she somehow "trapped" Louis into fathering her child is wrong. No offense to you, but Louis had choices too- to abstain, use birth control, or take the risk of getting her pregnant. He chose the latter.

That is a cruel think to say imo. They are both the "guilties" of this situation, and we cannot jugde Tessy because we don't know her! I am happy for both, a baby is always a Blessing, and I'm sure they will marry after the child is born. Of course their lifes will be very different from now on but they have money and the support of their families. If they decided to have the child (the best decision of all) is because they are very happy with the new baby!
I wish them the Best!!

I hope they choose the right path for themselves....if its marriage...then hopefully it will be a happy one. Let's just hope they don't rush into marriage thinking that is what they need to do. Marriage might not be the best option for them....who knows what will happen in a year....or even six months.

wow, it seems like news which should draw a mixed reaction.. like: congratulations! and what were you thinking? i hope they have a cute baby... i know its kinda weird but i hope they get married... especially because if they dont and louis has a future wife and legitimate kids... it would really suck for the kid to be illegitimate.

Ooof. I think most people misread my comment about "marrying a prince". I didn't mean to imply that she trapped Louis in the corner with getting pregnant- it's just as much his fault as it is hers. I also wrote that they BOTH should have been more careful.
I do wish them the best. But, I for one, just cannot see them settling down so happily at such a young age. I hope they prove me wrong.
