Danish princess gives birth to a daughter
COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) – Denmark’s royal palace says French-born Princess Marie has given birth to her second child, a girl.
The palace says the 35-year-old princess and her daughter are doing fine.
The father, Prince Joachim, was present during the birth Tuesday. The baby weighed 6.45 pounds (2.930 kilograms) and measures 19.6 inches (49 centimeters).
Joachim and Marie married in May 2008. The newborn is the couple’s second child and is 10th in line to Denmark’s throne.
The 42-year-old prince already has two sons from his previous marriage with Hong Kong-born Alexandra Manley. The couple divorced in 2005, the first split in nearly 160 years in Europe’s oldest monarchy.
Joachim is Queen Margrethe’s youngest son.
