Thanks marezdote for the information. I noticed that Polfoto has some pictures of the new baby and the photocaption credits Willem, too. Kinda cute!

27 JUNE 2005

Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and his wife, Crown Princess Maxima, welcomed a daughter to their family over the weekend. And proud dad Willem-Alexander couldn't wait to share his joy with the world, introducing the newborn to press and well-wishers outside the hospital.

"Here she is," announced the crown prince as he showed off his beautiful girl, born one week early on Sunday at Bronovo Hospital in The Hague. The newest member of the family was bundled in the same dress that both he and Amalia donned when they were born.

"I'm proud of my wife, who again did an excellent job," said the grinning father-of-two.

As far as a name for the 7lb 7oz little princess, Willem-Alexander said he and his spouse "had not quite decided yet".

The new addition is third in line to the throne. Willem-Alexander and Maxima already have a daughter, Princess Amelia, who is 18 months old.

"Here she is," announced proud dad Willem-Alexander as she gave the world a first glimpse at the newest member of the Dutch royal family

There are rumours, that the name of the baby will be "Sophie Emma". You maybe remember, that we have heard of Catharina Amalia´s name BEFORE Willem registered her. Ppl in the dutch press have played with different names (as domains) and suddenly "Catharina Amalia" led them to the webpage of the court. This time this group in the press should have done the same:

IMO this would be a lovely name...but I would prefer "Sophia Emma" or (even better) Emma Sophia (sounds better for me). Well, we have to wait and see...

I suggested the names Maria Juliana Isabel Elise, but I guess that goes out the window now! Let's about Sophie Emma Juliana Maria.

Many congratulations to the Dutch Royal Family, especially W-A, M, and C-A (who is looking cuter every day, and I laughed at the very cute story of the swimming pool, ha ha)!

I think it's a lovely gesture that W-A shows his children so soon after their birth, it makes people feel involved.

The baby looks so cute, and I think Sophie-Emma would be a lovely name for her. I really like the name Catharina-Amalia too, W-A and M seem to have a good taste in names! However, I thought that after the death of Juliana, and especially with Mabel and Marilene not using the name for their little girls, perhaps they were leaving the name for W-A and M's little girl? I guess we'll have to wait and see.

The weirdest coincidence, I just heard today that my friend gave birth to a red-haired baby boy yesterday! I believe he will be named Sebastian.

Now I'm looking forward to hear the dutch baby's name. :)

Thanks to everyone who posted all the pictures, articles, and the tidbits.

My warmest congratulations to the couple and their families! The new princess looks exactly like her big sister (who is looking more adorable and cute as she grows older).:)
