Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark stepped out with all four of their children on Thursday for the christening of their twins in Copenhagen at Holmens Kirke.

The couple finally announced the names of the new prince and princess -- Vincent Frederik Minik Alexander and Josephine Sofia Ivalo Mathilda, Vincent and Josephine for short. The AFP explains, "The children were each given one Greenlandic name, Minik and Ivalo, in honour of Denmark's autonomous territory, according to Danish media."

Frederik previously joked that the little man would be called Elvis, since they were born on The King of rock and roll's birthday, back in January. Kind of glad they didn't go with that.

The babies were joined by the couple's other kids, six-year-old Prince Christian and four-year-old Princess Isabella. Also on-hand for the festivities were Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik and Princess Mary's sister Patricia. Mary opted for a royal blue sheath paired with cream-colored headpiece and matching pumps for the occasion.

Take a look at photos from the day.
