Both mother and baby, who weighed eight pounds and measured 22 inches long, are said to be doing well.

Nevertheless, Prince Daniel witnessed his little son being born and later left the hospital to address the press.

Meanwhile, the couple announced they were expecting their second child back in September, but decided to remain tight-lipped on the tiny tot's sex until the birth.
