Welcome, little one!

Congratulations to parents, grandparents and great-grandparents!

It's Princess Hisako debut as a grandmother, isn't it?
AFAIK, Noriko Senge doesn't have children.

And Princess Yuriko at least fifth great-grandchild?
At the moment of her husbands' death it was mentioned that they have had four great-grandchildren (probably their eldest grandson Tadahiro Konoe had fourth child).
Few months after the death of Tadahiro, Prince Mikasa their other granddaughter Makiko Sen married Munehiro Sakata, so she may already have a child of her own.

Yes, the baby is Princess Hisako's first grandchild.

From Tadahiro Konoe's Japanese wikipedia page, he has 4 children with wife Keiko Kuni.

ETA: Moriya baby boy is Princess Yuriko's 6th great-grandchild.

Makiko Sakata gave birth to a girl on August 21, 2019 (Reiwa 1) in Kyoto. First grandchild for Sōshitsu Sen XVI and Masako Sen.

Due to Ayako's baby news, we get more footage of the Moriyas and Noriko at the recent enthronement events. I don't know if it's normal for the IHA to announce news about a former royal. Maybe everyone's excited because it's been so long since the last ex-royal baby 29 years ago (Masako Sen's second son born in 1990).
