Princess Beatrice Gives Birth to a Baby Girl

·1 min read

There's a new British royal baby! Buckingham Palace just confirmed the happy news that Princess Beatrice gave birth to her daughter on Saturday at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London.

"Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are delighted to announce the safe arrival of their daughter on Saturday 18th September 2021, at 23.42, at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London," reads a statement released this morning.

"The family would like to thank all the staff at the hospital for their wonderful care."

The Palace then went on to share that both mother and baby are in good health following the delivery, and that the little girl weighs in at 6 pounds and 2 ounces.

While this is Beatrice's first child with her husband Edoardo Mapelli-Mozzi, she refers to Christopher "Wolfie," Edo's son from a previous relationship, as her "bonus son." The statement noted that "the couple are looking forward to introducing their daughter to her big brother Christopher Woolf."

Beatrice and Edo's relatives are understandably excited about the newest member of their family. According to a press release, "The new baby’s grandparents and great-grandparents have all been informed and are delighted with the news."

The child, whose name has yet to be released publicly, is the 12th great-grandchild for Queen Elizabeth, the second grandchild for Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, and the first cousin for baby August, Princess Eugenie's son who was born earlier this year.

A name has yet to be announced in keeping with royal tradition, but we'll share that news as soon as it is confirmed.
