Princess Sofia gushes about being a first-time mum

Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia simply can’t get enough of their sweet new arrival!

The genetically-blessed royals, who welcomed their first child together earlier this year, have opened up about the changes in their lives since becoming first-time parents.
"It's amazing," the brunette beauty told Sweden's Svenskdam during a visit to Stenhammar Palace, situated just 120 kilometers south of Stockholm.
"He is very sweet and well-behaved," the former reality television star revealed as she looked adoringly into her son’s stroller, where he napped peacefully, sucking on a dummy.
The new mum just can't get enough of her sweet son.
When asked who the newborn takes after, mum Sofia quipped, "He's a little mixture of both of us! And it's different every day.”
And papa Carl couldn’t agree more! “The first time has been a shift, of course, but it is still absolutely amazing and wonderful,” he beamed to which Sofia agreed.
“Having children changes your whole life.”
The now family-of-three pictured taking their darling son for a stroll in the sun.
The new parents welcomed their sweet bub into the world on Tuesday April 19 at 6:25pm at the Danderyd hospital in Stockholm.
Just hours after he became a dad, the Prince spoke to reporters in a press conference at the hospital.
When asked if he had cried during the birth, he remarked, "Yes, actually. Of course. Couldn't stop."
"For me and my wife, this is obviously a great day with a lot of emotion," he mused.
"Words cannot describe."
The face of pure love!
After a few days spent enjoying the company of their new cherub, the oh-so-dashing Prince and his stunning wife revealed the name of their darling son.
An official announcement from the Swedish Royal Court confirmed that the mini-royal will go by the name of Prince Alexander Erik Hubertus Bertil, Duke of Södermanland.
The majestic name and title was announced by Carl Philip's father, King Carl XVI Gustaf at a cabinet meeting on Thursday April 21.
Prince Alexander is set to be christened on the 9th of September in Stockholm's Royal Chapel.
