Terrific news! I had a feeling that they wouldn't wait very long but I hadn't expected an announcement this soon after Victoria and Daniel. I doubt it'll be a double christening though. After all, there's a quite significant difference in prominence between the two little ones – what with one being child of the future Queen and the other "merely" being a grandchild of the current King (now if it had been CP's child and Madeleine's child, I could easily have imagined a double christening.

Or they just wanted to start a family right away? Besides, Estelle didn't need a spare, she's "only" second in line to the throne and already has CP as "her spare".

This "baby explosion" happened to the other royal families to some extent. If you look at the Spanish or Dutch royals, the young generation is very close in age. This is quite reasonable, Victoria, Madeleine and CP married within a short time of diference between themselves, so the possibilities that more than one couple having a child at the same time (or around the same time) is higher.

This baby is a honeymoon baby, just like Madeleine and Chris. How wonderfull.

Congratulations to the couple!
The Swedish royal house may experience decrease in activities next year. Prince Daniel and Prince Carl Philip will have to pick the slack.

Kudos to all of us who thought she was pregnant and resisted saying so!
And hurrah for this lovely young couple and all their future offspring.

Wonderful news and congratulations to Sofia and Carl Philip.

Hmm, maybe that explains Sofia wearing Victoria's coat. Great time to share the gear.

Yes, these cousins are sure to play together, especially if they are of the same sex. This is extremely good news for the Swedish Royal family. Grandchildren are coming thick and fast for King Carl Gustav and Queen Silvia.

The municipality of Älvdalen is congratulating Sofia and Carl Philip:

Prinsessan Sofia och Prins Carl Philip väntar sitt första barn -

I had a dream: Let's connect our thoughts together, than we have a mission, let's connect our feelings together, than we have a mood, let's connect our dreams together, than we have a vision and let's connect our mission, our mood and our vision together than we have a perfect life.
