Spain’s Crown Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia have become proud parents for the second time. The royal couple’s second daughter, who they have named Sofia, was born on Sunday at Madrid’s Ruber International Clinic by Caesarean section, weighing a healthy 7lbs 5oz.

The new princess, who is third in line to the throne after her father and one-year-old sister Leonor, is named after her grandmother Queen Sofia.

Speaking outside the hospital, Felipe said: “We are very happy. I truly didn’t know how I was going to react to the birth of another baby girl, but I think that one loves each child the same.” He added that he had been a little nervous during the birth but mother and baby are both doing well.

Felipe married Letizia, a former TV anchorwoman, in a lavish ceremony in May 2004. Their first daughter, Leonor, was born in October 2005.
