Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria Has a Baby Girl

Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria had a baby girl last week, and today the royal family released the first photos of the little princess! Princess Victoria, 34, is the eldest child of King Carl XVI Gustaf and her new daughter, Estelle Silvia Ewa Mary, is second in line after her.

In 1980, when Princess Victoria was only 2, Sweden altered its rules of succession to allow the eldest child to inherit the throne regardless of gender. So Victoria will become Sweden's monarch, instead of her younger brother Prince Carl Philip, and one day her newborn daughter will inherit the throne. Right now, Princess Victoria is the world's only female heir-apparent. In 2010, she married her former personal trainer, Daniel Westling, on her parent's 34th wedding anniversary, after dating for eight years. On Thursday, Daniel told reporters, "When I left the room the little princess was sleeping on her mother's chest and they were looking very cozy."
