Move over, Prince George and Princess Charlotte! There’s a new little royal here to win our hearts.

Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia of Sweden welcomed a baby boy just two days ago, and now they’re revealing his name and first photo. The new royal baby will be called Prince Alexander Erik Bertil Hubertus, Duke of Södermanland.

“It’s an unexpected choice,” royal nomenclature expert Herman Lindqvist told a Swedish media outlet. “No Swedish royals have been called Alexander, although during the 1800s, some princes had it as one of their names.”

Personally, love it. I was hoping for a little Prince Alex when Kate Middleton was preggers with George, but this modern yet regal title definitely fits the very contemporary Swedish royal family.

Just look at the happy gang!

Everyone is healthy, and the growing family has already left the hospital to head home.

Prince Alexander is fifth in line to the throne.

And if you’re obsessed with Kate Middleton, Prince William, and company, you should definitely keep up on the gossip around Sweden’s royals. I’ve already argued that Sofia is like a more relatable Kate, and the young family is just as stylish.
