A spot of GOOD news in an otherwise gloomy family situation.

If you follow this link, you can see video footage of Count Jefferson von Pfeil giving reporters an update on the birth of his daughter and a few words from little Richard, who got a scooter from his new baby sister! (Love how Count Jefferson said that she already knows how to be a good shopper! :P ) Count Jefferson conducted the interview in English though the news reporters spoke in Danish. And he gives us hope that there will be more babies from this lovely couple!

She named her son after her father, so maybe her daughter will be named for a family member as well.

I don't know anything about her husband's family, but here are some names from both sides of her family,

Alexandrine
Astrid
Benedikte
Charlotte
Ingrid
Luise
Madeleine
Marguerite
Margrethe
Marie

My bet would be her grandmother Ingrid, but then I have never been right on a baby name guess.

All the royal babies this year have been girls, haven't they?

Tv2 said that the baby's name is Ingrid. We'll probably learn the rest of her names at the baptism.

I know some women with that name

when I hear that name, I don't think of a countess - she's a countess, isn't she?


I like the dutch royal-baby-names (Isabella, Anna/Anastasia, Lucas, Eloise)

Ingrid seems very old fashioned to me. But that's just my North American imposition! :P Maybe it's popular and enjoying a re-birth in the Scandinavian nations? It would've been nice if Alexandra and Jefferson could've honoured the baby's maternal great-grandmother while giving her a less old-fashioned name however. Like Ingrid as a middle name.

www.dr.dk - Little Richard at the hospital.

18. august 2003 16:17 Indland

Nyfødt komtesse skal hedde Ingrid

Den kongelige familie får nu igen en Ingrid i familien.

Prinsesse Alexandra af Berleburg opkalder sin lille ny datter efter sin mormor: Dronning Ingrid.

I dag forlod prinsesse Alexandra af Berleburg Rigshospitalet med sin lille nyfødte datter i armene.

Sammen med sin mand, grev Jefferson, og parrets tre-årige søn, grev Richard, talte prinsessen smilende med pressen og viste sin nyfødte frem. Her fortalte hun, at den lille pige skal hedde Ingrid.

Den velskabte pige, der vejede 3690 gram og var 53 centimeter lang, kom til verden kl. 02.22 natten til lørdag.

Barnebarn nummer to
Barnets far, grev Jefferson von Pfeil, var til stede under fødslen, der blev ledet af overlæge, dr.med. Jørgen Starup med bistand fra afdelingsjordemoder Birgitte Hillerup.

Den lille nye komtesse er prinsesse Benedikte og prins Richards andet barnebarn. Storebror grev Richard von Pfeil blev også født på Rigshospitalet, det var i 1999.

Prinsesse Alexandra af Berleburg blev dansk statsborger i 1999, men er ikke med i arvefølgen til den danske trone.

Hun blev gift med Jefferson-Friedrich von Pfeil und Klein-Ellguth ved et stort bryllup i Gråsten Slotskirke i 1998. Til daglig bor parret i Paris, men den sidste tid op til fødslen har familien opholdt sig i Gråsten.

www.dr.dk - Storebror grev Richard havde et godt tag i sin mor da han fik øje på pressefolkene.

www.dr.dk - Prinsesse Alexandra og grev Jefferson tager afsked med personalet på Riget, overlæge Jørgen Starup og afdelingsjordemoder Birgitte Hillerup.

www.dr.dk - Og så skulle pressen have svar på de mange spørgsmål.

www.dr.dk - Parret blev gift i 1998. De bor til daglig i Paris, men den sidste tid op til fødslen har familien opholdt sig i Gråsten.

www.dr.dk - Og sådan ser en lille ny komtesse ud.

(Little Ingrid close up.)

www.dr.dk - Grev Richard og hans ny lillesøster er prinsesse Benedikte og prins Richards to eneste børnebørn.

www.dr.dk - Prinsesse Alexandra spænder sin søn fast i bilen.

Glad to see that Princess Alexandra is using a baby seat to take little Ingrid home in. So many royals (and non-royals) take their newborn babies home in their arms, which can be so dangerous.
