The Crown Prince Family welcomed their Twins into the World today. The little Prince was first and then followed by the little Princess a half hour later. Both are 5 pounds and respective ounces (saw it, but don't remember it) and they and their Mother, Crown Princess Mary, are all doing fine.

We won't know the names until after they're Christened in around three months time, as per Danish Royal Family tradition.

Been waiting all week for this announcement and so happy everything went well and everyone is doing well.

Congratulations to Fredrick, Mary, Big Brother Christian and Big Sister Isabella!!!

Welcome to the World Little Ones!!! :)

Great news! Both over 5 pounds is fabulous for twins.

And only one week before the due date - excellent! Glad mother and babies are in good health :)

Yipeee, more twins! I just love twins, having one set of my own. And just like these two, my son made his appearance first -except in my case, he's older by ONE whole minute :)

As for their early appearance, is it true that they are only a week early but only something in the five pound range? Just curious because I was just under 4 weeks early and my two came in at 6-9 and 5-0 respectively and I'm not a large person.

Congrats to the proud parents.

Yes, it's true. They were due next week, and the girl is 46cm and weighs 2554 grams while the boy weighs 2674 grams and measures 47cm. I think that means the girl is about 5.6lbs and the boy 5.8.

A friend of mine had a baby last year, on time and only the one baby, and she was around the same weight.

Congratulations, to the happy family.

Hello has finally caught up w/things...

'We call him Prince Elvis' jokes Prince Frederik as he announces arrival of twins (http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty/201101104744/princess-mary-of-denmark/twins/names/1/)

BTW...Over at the Royalty MB I belong to, that triggered us "adopting" that as a name for the little boy. Someone thought it wasn't fair that the little Prince had a nickname, while his little sister didn't, so she looked up to see if there were any really well known female singers celebrating their birthday on Saturday. Turns out it was also Shirley Bassey's Birthday on Saturday.

Due to that, until the Christening and official naming, we're calling the Twins Elvis and Shirley over there. :D

Christian and Isabella visited their Mother and new siblings yesterday, but I haven't seen any pictures of them arriving or leaving. Which is a good thing IMO.

Also looks like a visit to Australia this year is in the works, but that's no big surprise. Of course they'd want to show off the newest members of the Family to the side that's Down Under. :)

Still haven't heard when they're leaving the hospital, but I'm guessing Thursday at the latest.

Prince Elvis and Princess Shirley are FABULOUS nicknames! :lol:

Mary and Fred, you listening? Name 'em Elvis and Shirley! Come on, HMQ Marge is totally hip and groovy, she'd probably love it. ;)
