It's a princess

HRH Princess Marie of Denmark gave birth today to her second child, a daughter.  The princess is the wife of Prince Joachim of Denmark, younger son of Queen Margrethe II.  The infant princess, whose name will not be announced until the christening, joins older brother, Prince Henrik, and two older half brothers, Princes Nikolai and Felix, who are Joachim's sons by his first marriage to Alexandra Manley.

The princess was born at Copenhagen's University Hospital.  She weighed 6.5 lbs and measured 19.3 inches.

i can't believe it! thought for sure it'd be a prince... i guess joachim DOES carry the ability to produce a girl! ;-) :-P

bet denmark will be celebrating this news! can't wait to see the princess in a few days & hear the name in a few months! aside from britain, denmark's royal family & history is by far my favorite. :-)
