Princess Mathilde is pregnant

The Belgian court just announced the Duke and Duchess of Brabant will be proud parents of four kids next spring if everything goes well. (see

The official statement:
“On Emmanuel´s second birthday Elisabeth, Gabriel, together with the birthday child and their parents Princess Mathilde and Prince Philippe, are very happy to announce that they will welcome a sister or brother in Spring 2008.
The King and the Queen, the entire royal family and the family of Princess Mathilde are sharing in their great joy.”
The new arrival will be the twelfth grandchild for King Albert and Queen Paola, and the fifth in the line of succession.

I dearly hope everything goes well for Mathilde and the little one and keep my fingers crossed for a female addition to the Brabant team.

I didn't believe my eyes when I first logged in today. I'm so happy for them! Boy or girl? I don't really have a feeling yet. If Elisabeth gets a little sister that would be great fun for her but it is also nice to be the only girl in a house full of boys.

I'm not sure why I'm suprised! I guess I'm just caught off guard?I don't know.
Does anyone know how many years apart each child is from each other?
You don't hear of too many families now a days that have more than 2 or 3 children, so this is a nice suprise. Congratulations to the entire family.
