From what I heard:

The medical team: it was almost a dream birth. They first heard from 'their patient' around 5 am; Mary's labour started spontaneously and she was well underway when she arrived.
Both children had full apgar score. The medical team seemed very pleased with the children's birth weights, said that for twins more than 2500 g is very good.
The head of the medical team said that yes, the 'official' due date had been end of January.

Frederik talked about how this was almost like becoming a dad for the first time again; the knowledge that now there were two little heart beating.

He started by saying that mother and children were fine - as was the father!

Official announcement from the the royal website (not yet in English)
Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well.

An article from Politiken: Lykkelig Frederik: »Et mirakel gange to« -

Lykkelig Frederik. Et mirakel gange to - Happy Frederik: A miracle times two.
Written by: Elisabeth Astrup.

The CP-couple knew the sex of the twins beforehand.

"We are very relieved and overjoyed. We couldn't be more happy than we are this time.
It's such a big moment. Both twins have dark hair and they both sounded off. I'm very impressed by women and for what you can accomplish
It was close to being unreal. You stad there with the first one and mother has to keep working, and then a girl comes. It was crazy".

The family was delighted as well and he added:
"What I have been thinking about the most is whether this will go well. There are two little heart one needs to keep an eye on all the time".

As to whether they are going to have more children:
"I won't stand here and say anything about that. I have to include my better half in that".

- And with this there will be no further posts from me for a while.
Congrats to M&F from me as well.

Some more washing and they might turn pink! Lille pige (the little girl) will like that, won't she?
Frederik seemed to be quite serious at the beginning of the press conference, as if he was concentrating on getting the facts and numbers right. When he switched to English after being asked by an Australien journalist he started to laugh more and his joy and excitement started to really show.
