There's another royal baby on the way (but don't freak out, it's not who you think)

Congratulations are in order!

And before you all start jumping to conclusions, no, it isn't Will and Kate (this time) but rather the Swedish royals that are expanding their (gorgeous!) brood.

Princess Sofia, the wife of Prince Carl Philip, is pregnant with the couple’s second child, the Royal Court of Sweden has confirmed.

“We are happy to announce that we are expecting a child, a sibling to Prince Alexander. We are looking forward to welcoming a new little member to our family,” Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia said in an official announcement.

Prince Carl Philip, to those of you not entirely up to speed on Europe's young royals, is, of course, the second child and only son of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia. He married his long-time girlfriend Sofia Hellqvist in 2015, and the couple welcomed their first child, Prince Alexander, back in April last year.

The Nordic royals are busy with baby making these days; the King and Queen of Sweden have welcomed no less that five grandchildren in the space of the last four years.
