Princess Victoria & Prince Daniel Of Sweden Expecting Their First Child

Posted: Updated:

As if European royalty hadn't had enough family milestones this year, Princess Victoria of Sweden and her husband Prince Daniel have announced that they are expecting their first child.

Reported by Hello!, the news comes about a year after the couple married in what the Daily Mail then called the "biggest royal wedding for decades" (little did they know...).

Princess Victoria, daughter of Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, did what Zara Phillips would do a year later by marrying an athletic commoner, gym owner and personal trainer Daniel Westling who now goes by the title Prince Daniel.

Over a year into their marriage, the prince and princess have announced their good news via a palace statement, which also added that the baby is expected in March of 2012, writes Hello!

The stylish princess, who is first in line for the Swedish throne, said, "With Daniel by my side I feel secure. You have probably noticed that in recent years I have seemed stronger and happier. And now the time has come for us to begin building something together and starting a family."

The couple sure does seem happy -- take a look at the chic pair (we especially love Daniel's sorta hipster glasses) over the past several months!
