gramme when he was born.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #30, 2010.
Han er stor og dejlig - He is big and lovely.
Written by Anna Johannesen.

Where Princess Benedikte talks about her new grandson.
He was born on Saturday at 18.45 measuring 58 cm and weighing 3.700 grammes.

Benedikte said: "He is a big and lovely boy with blond hair and blue eyes. I'm happy that the birth went well and that Prince Richard and I have had yet another lovely grandchild (barnebarn). I've visited my daughter at the hospital several times and both she and the child are fine.

The wedding between Nathalie and her Alexander took place at Berleburg on the 27. May in what the Germans call a Standesamtliche Trauung, I.e. a civil wedding.

Nathalie and her husband plus baby now live at Berleburg Manor.

Nathalie is a Danish citizen, her Alexander Johannsmann is a German citizen, he kept his surname after their wedding.

According to the article it is speculated in Germany that the boy's name will be Konstantin.

It has not yet been decided when the christening will take place.

You mean she looked different and not as good as she normally does,
but well, you have to think of the fact that a birth is a very extreme,
painful and debilitating process. You can see it in many women in their
first days and weeks after a birth, besides that it's also not the best
shot from the photographic aspect

I think we have to understand that Nathalie had just delivered a child to the world, she's probably very tired, a birth it's a very painful and strong thing to endure. Let's just give her a break and wish her and her new family the absolute best.

That's a very German/Danish name I like that they have kept with tradition.

Nathalie does look different after having the baby, but she has just had a baby so a little weight is expected. Shame she wasn't at Gratsen.

I think Nathalie looked absolutely okay. She doesn't seem to wear make up and the quality of the picture is a bit odd.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

The picture actually looks like its a mobile camera or some low mega pixel camera IMO.

So the baby was born via caesarean or was it natural?

Lilibeth77, I think it's been a natural birth.

Billed-Bladet has the first official pics and an interview with the new
parents. A very tiny pic can be seen on the cover of this week's
issue.

The cover picture comes that size. We will have to wait for the site to publish the pictures I think when the magazine comes out.

Summary of interview in Billed Bladet #31, 2010.
Interviewer: Anna Johannesen.
Her er vores Konstantin - Here is our Konstantin.

The interview took place at Berleburg a week after Nathalie gave birth. Konstantin slept soundly throughout the entire interview.
He is blonde and has blue eyes like his parents.
His full name will be Konstantin Gustav Heinrich Richard zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg-Johannsmann, on a day to day basis he will be called Konstatin, - or "lille skat = little treasure". (*)

The labour pains started around 05.00 and at 18.45 she gave birth. Alexander, her husband, cut the umbellical cord, without crying.

Nathalie thinks the baby "is a good mix of both of them".

He is an easy child (**) and sleeps almost the whole night through.
He sleeps in a cot in his parent's bedroom, so can easily be breastfed.

The whole family had of course at that time been presented to the little new one, with the exception Alexandra, who hadn't had time yet.

They expect to get married at Berleburg (church wedding) in May or June 2011, the christening will take place in the autumn but no date has been set yet. However as she will be ridning in Kentucky from the 25. September to the 10. October, it will not take place until after she has returned.
Nathalie is and was a very active rider, she rode until eight weeks prior to the birth and she expects to start riding again two weeks after giving birth.

Just like Princess Benedikte did with her and her siblings, Nathalie will speak Danish to Konstantin on a day to day basis. While he at the same time will inevitably learn to speak German.

(*) Skat is the most common word of endearment in Danish. Used about babies, children in general or spouses.

(**) The first child is easy. The second however....
