Lia Lambrino, the wife of Paul Lambino, who pretends to the title of Prince of Romania, gave birth to a son today at a Bucharest Hospital. Carol Ferdinand Lambrino weighed 4.9 lbs.
Although Romanian news sources state that Lia is 56, she is actually 60 years old, and will celebrate her 61st birthday on February 23.
Paul is the son of the late Carol Mircea Lambrino, the first born son of the late King Carol. Carol Mircea was born after Carol's marriage to Zizi Lambrino was annulled.
In the late 1950s, Carol Mircea Lambrino was named in French and Portuguese rulings regarding King Carol II's property in those two countries. He was able to be named as a legitimate heir to these properties, along with his half-brother, King Michael. (The property in France was apparently a ramshackle house.) The court rulings established or defined Carol Mircea as a prince of the Royal House of Romania.The court rulings were solely for the late king's personal property in two countries.
Paul does not have dynastic rights in Romania.
It is unlikely that this baby was conceived in a natural manner, considering Lia's true age. It appears that a little medical tinkering was done to achieve the goal of giving birth at the age of 60.
"My wife and I a long time we wanted a child," says Prince Paul in a statement released to the media. "It is also a time of accomplishment and because our son was born in Romania, as we wanted. Birth of our son is one more reason to reaffirm my duty to honor our ancestors and to the generation to come, for him to know better and understand the history of the Romanian people, which they love so much."
This is the first child for Paul Lambrino. Lia Lambrino has a 37-year-old daughter, Melia, from her first marriage to lawyer Melvin Belli.
The Bucharest Herald's report has upped Lia's age to 58, which is still incorrect.
