You think, hasn’t she just got a haircut.
To me sweet Josephine is all Mary.
I can’t tell who sweet Vincent resembles. Maybe a perfect mix between Frederik and Mary.
But then it is most important they look like themselves

It’s not Frederik we can hear in the video, is it ?
I’m pretty sure it is Christian.

Fine and Phine are pronounced similarly in Danish.
So because Josephine is spelled with ‘ph’, her nickname will be Phine.
I agree with Muhler:
We have heard Vincent is called Vincer.
Isabella is often called Bella.
I haven't heard Christian’s name be shortened neither.
But both Frederik and Mary are often heard calling their children 'skat'. It is the Danish word for honey/sweetheart.
We have heard Frederik call Mary the nickname Maz.
We hear him call her 'skat' and he often refers to her as ‘my wife’.
I've only heard Mary say Frederik or ‘skat’ to Frederik.
But she often refers to Frederik as 'my husband'.
'Skat' is a very common word for your loved ones here in Denmark, and you can easily call your whole household ‘skat’. Both your spouse and children. It's pretty easy when you call at someone... they all answer
Unless they are teens... then they are not answering at all.
