A new baby for Denmark's Royal Family!

Princess Marie has given birth to a baby girl in Copenhagen.

Princess Marie gave birth to a healthy baby girl on January 24th.

Prince Joachim was present and spoke to the waiting press an hour after the birth. Here is some of what he had to say:

That no one thought was possible, but it happened: It was a girl. She resembles her mother… she has dark hair. She is healthy and well shaped. When she was born it was a poignant moment. I shed a tear this time too.

Keeping with Danish tradition, the baby's name will not be revealed until the day of her christening.
