The Swedish royal family is about to get a little bigger!
Princess Madeleine, 32, is pregnant and expecting her second child with her 40-year-old husband, British-American banker Christopher O’Neill, the royal court confirmed on Friday, Dec. 19.
“We are very happy and look forward to welcoming a new member to our family,” the couple said in an official statement.
