Congratulations on the birth of your daughter, Crown Princess!
Crown Princess Victoria gives birth to baby girl. Victoria's husband, Prince Daniel, told media the girl, who is second in line to the Swedish throne, was born at 4:26 a.m. Swedish local time at the Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm. She was 20 inches (51 centimeters) long and weighed 7.23 pounds (3.28 kilograms).
