STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria gave birth to a daughter in Stockholm Thursday morning, the royal family announced.

The daughter of Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, and granddaughter of King Carl Gustaf, was born at the Karolinska hospital in Stockholm, the Stockholm News reported.

"The crown princess feels radiant, she is so happy. Everything has been great," the prince told reporters at a news conference at the hospital, adding the "very cute princess" was born at 4:26 a.m.

"As I walked down from the room, the little princess rested on her mother's chest, and seemed to have it very cozy, so it was hard to tear oneself away," he said. "Both the little daughter and the crown princess are doing great."
