George and Charlotte, we love you BUT there is another royal baby on the way that we’re getting pretty excited about. Sweden’s Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip just announced they are expecting their first baby together.


The unlikely couple’s story isn’t actually all that different from Will and Kate’s. Sofia was born in a normal Swedish family and actually spent some time in NYC working as a certified yoga instructor at Yoga to the People before returning to her homeland. The dreamy 36-year-old Prince met Sofia in the summer of 2009 while they were both on holiday in the southern Swedish town Båstad. The two married just last year in what looked like a fairytale royal wedding.

As if this news wasn’t enough of a Thursday treat, the baby is expected to arrive in April of 2016, which means we don’t even have to wait all that long to meet this new prince or princess. People reports the couple may have delayed announcing the pregnancy to avoid distracting attention from the christening of Prince Nicolas earlier this month. And while, of course we would love to have known ASAP, we get it. You don’t want to show up to a wedding announcing your engagement, after all.

That being said, we’ve still got six months to wait which is plenty of time to start brainstorming what this new royal baby’s name will be.
