"We are delighted with the new addition to our family," O’Neill said. "Leonore and Nicolas have their long-awaited sibling. They can’t wait to meet their new baby sister."

Madeleine, 35, delivered baby No. 3 at Stockholm's Danderyd Hospital after she recently flew home to prepare for the birth rather than deliver in London where their family currently resides. Their firstborn, 4-year-old Princess Leonore, was delivered at a private New York Hospital, while 2-year-old Prince Nicolas was also born at the same Stockholm hospital.
