Crown Princess Mary gave birth to her twins babies this morning on January 8, 2011. The first little baby to meet the world was a little boy, who weighed in at a grand 2674 grams and measured no less than 47 cm. Then a little girl saw the light of day. She weighed 2574 grams and was 46 cm tall. Very impressive measures for twin babies. The 38-year old Australian beauty had been admitted to the hospital early this morning. Her husband Crown Prince Frederik was sitting by his wife’s side throughout the labour.
Frederik announced the arrival of the new prince and princess outside the Danish National Hospital, Rigshospitalet, in Copenhagen. Both mother and children are doing well, he said. Journalists and press photographers from all over the world were present to interview the happy father. The press had literally been waiting by the phone for days to be ready for the birth.
During the Crown Prince’s official appearance in front of the hospital, the press asked if the royal couple had thought of any names for the two little guys. Frederik responded that they were still considering names but that he had heard that the birthday was also Elvis’. “So for now, we can call the little Prince Elvis”, he added with a smile.
The royal twins will be fourth and fifth in Denmark’s line of succession after their father, their brother Christian, five, and their sister, Isabella, who is three.
