If Mathilde went into the hospital at 8 AM, my guess is they had a short night of sleep! No wonder Phillippe looks tired! Congratulations to this dear family!

On the news they told that the first picture's of Prince Emmanuel will come this weekend , when he goes home with his mother and father . Prince Phillipe was very emotional when the press asked him some questions . He also said he was very pround on his wife . Maybe the Prince will answer some questions in the following days , about choosing the names and things like that . Emmanuel means something like " God and all the people". And maybe they have chosen Francois because it's the nameday of Francois
The King and Queen , and Mathilde's parents already have visit their new grandchild . Princess Astrid and Lorenz are in Germany , but the Princess told she was verry happy for her brother and her sister-in-law
Emmanuel is born on a very special day . Today it's the 175 anniversary of the independent of Belgium

Thank you Emilia. Usually there was a photoshoot before they left the hospital.Nice to hear that also Mathilde´s parents visited their grandchild.(BTWMathilde´s children are the only grandchildren, or?)So Mathilde must feel very good,so many visitors on the day of the delivery.
Why are Astrid/Lorenz in Germany?

Prince Emmanuel Léopold Guillaume François Marie was born today at 13h06 at the Erasme hospital in Brussels.

Around 8h15 princess Mathilde was brought to the hospital, prince Philippe was of course with her all the time.

the baby weighs 3,900 grams and mesures 50 cm.

It was a natural birth, without anaesthesia. Prince Philippe said "It was a difficult birth, but my wife is fantastic". They didn't know beforehand whether it would be a boy or a girl.

Godmother is Mathilde's younger sister, countess Elisabeth d'Udekem d'Acoz and godfather is Philippe's (son of) cousin hereditary prince Guillaume of Luxemburg.

No photos yet of prince Emmanuel, the family wants to enjoy their privacy a bit first, we'll see the new prince when Mathilde leaves hospital. It hasn't been anounced yet when this will be.

Elisabeth and Gabriel have come to admire their new brother, just like Philippe and Mathilde's parents.

Emmanuel is born on the exact 175th birthday of Belgium's independance.

Emmanuel is fourth in line of succession to the throne.

The name Emmanuel isn't uncommon in Belgium, like Elisabeth and Gabriel it is a classical, biblical name that mostly appears in upperclass families.

Yes , Elisabeth , Gabriel and now newborn Emmanuel are the only grandchildren of Anne and Patrick ( parents of Mahtilde ).
Astrid and Lorenz visinting something in Germany. Tommorow they (the press)
also expect a visit of Elisabeth ( godmother) , and maybe this week also Emmanuel's godfather will visit him . I can't wait to see the picture's of the little prince ! On the news they also said that Emmanuel won't be the last child of Philliphe and Mathilde , I hope so , because i like this a lot !:)

Emmanuel means "God is with us".

Later on Philippe will give a press conference where it will probably also be explained why these specific names were chosen.
