Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia of Sweden have just welcomed a baby boy. This marks their second child together, following Prince Alexander, who was born in April 2016. The royal couple, who wed in 2015, announced the arrival of their newborn on Instagram today.

"On Thursday, 31 August at 11:24 a.m., Princess Sofia welcomed a healthy and prosperous child at Danderyd Hospital. Both mother and child are doing well," the caption reads in Swedish, according to People.

The couple has not yet revealed their new son's name, but Prince Carl Philip did give a brief statement to reporters after the birth was announced. "We are really happy. It’s a very cute boy," he said.

We can't wait to see the young royal out and about with the rest of his family.
