Not the most figure flattering outfit for a new mother but she can be forgiven. The first weeks after both can be a jumble.

Cute baby
He seems to be very calm child and both parents seem to be really proud of him.

May the decision of giving him that surname (and family names) indicate that the Sayn-W-B family is starting to think about the possibility that Gustav will never have children? Then we could be in front of the next heir of the big estate of the family!

I'm not sure what the surname has to do with anything?
Because they didn't just name him Konstantin Johannsmann, you think the SWB's think Gustav won't have children?

Yes, I have the feeling that, even if the law gives many possibilities, usually a baby is given his father's surname only. Usually when the mother's surname is given, it's to avoid an historical surname to be extinct.
Of course, the Sayn-W-B surname (like the title) is not going to be extinct (because of the other branches of the family) but the concern here can be that the (future) owner of schloss Berleburg etc retains the surname (with its historic and aristocratic sound).

I don't think it's that, I think it's just a gesture. But from the articles i've found and on wiki which I know is not the best. Konstantin is just Konstantin Johannsmann.

Yeah, bt I would have worn a girdle for the photo session. I don't understand are they married or not? She is wearing a wedding ring, yet her son carries her surname?!

Maybe Nathalie is happy with the way she looks.
And yes she is married, her son carries both her name and his name. But in some articles he only carries his fathers surname.

They are civil married, which is according to the law in Germany. The religious Wedding will take place in May or June next year. As for the names both have keept their names after the marriage. And for the names of chidlren there are many options here and they apparently choose to combine the name of both parents.
