I voted for a girl. A new Danish princess.

I think two boys. :-DWith identical twins, it's not something you enherige, it's just a coincidence. About 1 of 100 pregnancies will result in twins. So there is a chance, just like with any other woman in the world. Fraternal twins are often something you inherige. And even if Joachim was a twins, his mother, his grandmother, etc. the fraternal twins gene would have to run in Maries family, :-DTwins, why not?

I voted for a girl,it's my desire to see a mini-Marie too. But probably it will be a boy again. I noticed Marie has already a big tummy, even if she's pregnant for a few months. It will be nice they'll have twins but I think it isn't, because probably they would have already announced it

I voted for a girl as well. I'd like to see another Danish princess. Of course I hope whatever the sex is, the child is happy and healthy.

I voted for an adorable little princess for Joachim and Marie to cuddle and spoil! She would have two protective big brothers to look after her, and another little princess cousin to show her the ropes. :)

What were the choices again?

Boy. I'm not a big believer in "he's due for a girl" in that his first two were boys.

Personally, I think another boy would be nice for the two older boys, making them feel a bit less "different" than their father's second family. A girl would really underscore the "new" versus "old" kids in the family.

Well I have a science academic background so I'll make a stab at being semi-pseudo-scientific.

The number of children per birth is influenced by the mother's maternal line, but the sex of the child is determined by the father's paternal line.

I'm not aware of any fraternal twins in Marie's maternal-line history. For instance, if her mother has a twin / has twin siblings, this will increase the likelihood that Marie will bear twins. As far as I know, there is no evidence of this being the case (please correct me if I'm wrong!). Identical twins are products of chance, but are relatively rare compared to single pregnancies. Since single pregnancies is the norm and there is no evidence of multiple pregnancies in Marie's maternal line, it's more likely there will be only one child, not two.

As for the sex of the child: her husband Joachim has two sons already. He himself only has one sibling - a brother. Fred has one son and one daughter. I'm not sure how many siblings their father Henrik has, or their gender. So based on this limited information, it appears the family has a slight preponderance towards boys.

Furthermore, I've been told that women carrying boys have tummies that stick out more. Women carrying girls have tummies that are broader / wider. I think her tummy is sticking out quite a bit.

I therefore semi-pseudo-scientifically conclude that Marie will have one baby boy.

But I would like her to have a girl.

So I voted for one girl.
