Queen Fabiola expects a child

June 9, 1961

Pope John XXIII has disclosed that Queen Fabiola, the wife of King Baudouin, is expecting her first child, reports United Press International.

The pontiff told several Belgian newsmen in a special audience that he was delighted to learn of the "coming birth of an heir to the Belgian throne."

King Baudouin and his Spanish-born queen told the Pope the news during a private audience during a state visit to the Vatican last Thursday.
