The Swedish royal family is plagued with baby fever: After Princess Madeleine gave birth to her son Nicholas in June, Crown Princess Victoria with his Daniel and Prince Carl Philip of Sweden with his girlfriend Sofia Hellqvist are still waiting for the birth of their offspring.

But that’s not all: it seems that both of them only want to know this at birth. “It will be a surprise,” Sofia Hellqvist said cheerfully when she arrived in the United States, according to People magazine. In any case, the pregnancy seems to be doing the 29-year-old well, so she can survive the voluntary waiting period well: “It feels great.”
Sofia Hellqvist and Carl Philip from Sweden get tips
The couple doesn’t have to worry too much anyway. After all, Sofia Hellqvist and Carl Philip von Sweden are in the palace with Madeleine and Victoria, two seasoned mothers who seem to have some valuable advice for future fathers. “We talked about it,” admitted Prince Carl Philip of Sweden. “But I won’t reveal any details about what they told me.”
Sweden’s Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist still have a bit of time before they have to find their way into their new role. At least building the nest should be a bit more difficult. After all, pink and blue are no longer applicable …
