ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
STORY: Christopher O'Neill, the husband of Sweden's Princess Madeleine, announced the birth of their daughter in New York on Friday (February 21).
During a news conference at New York-Presbyterian / Weill Cornell Medical Center in Manhattan, where the child was delivered, O'Neill said, " We are just so thankful that at 10:41 last night (February 20), we brought a little girl into this world. And she looks like her mum, which is all I wanted," O'Neill told the media during a news conference at New York-Presbyterian / Weill Cornell Medical Center in Manhattan, where the child was delivered.
O'Neill did not reveal the child's name, but said she appeared to have brown eyes and brown hair.
The new father also showed the media his daughter's footprint, in faded ink, on his forearm.
Princess Madeleine, fourth in line to the throne of Sweden, was resting and did not attend the news conference.
O'Neill said he was present for the entire birth process, of which he has gained a new appreciation.
Thirty-one year old Madeleine, whose full title is Madeleine Therese Amelie Josephine, Princess of Sweden, Duchess of Halsingland and Gastrikland, married U.S.-British banker Christopher O'Neill in June last year.
The New York-based couple announced last September that they were expecting their first child.
