Prince is Born: Swedish royal, Princess Madeleine's son

Sweden's Princess Madeleine has given birth to a baby boy, her second child with husband Christopher O'Neill.

The 33-year-old princess and her husband, financier Christopher O'Neill, welcomed their second child into the world on Monday afternoon and both mother and baby are doing well.

An official statement read: "The Marshal of the Realm is delighted to announce that HRH Princess Madeleine gave birth to a son on June 15 at 1.45pm.

"Both mother and child are in good health."

It has not yet been confirmed what the little boy - a brother for 15-month-old Princess Leonore - will be named.

The new arrival will be raised in Chris' native UK as the family are preparing to move to London by the end of 2015.

The couple moved to Stockholm last year from New York, where they first met.

Madeleine - who spent four years living in America and has resided in the UK before- has previously spoken of how much she adores being married to Chris.

She has said: "The sweetest feeling now that we are married is that we really are a team. It really brings a special bond."

The new baby was born just two days after the Swedish royals welcomed another family member, following Prince Carl Philip's wedding to Sofia Hellqvist.
