It's been a minute since there was any royal baby excitement but Prince Christian of Hanover and Alessandra de Osma just welcomed twins! Yes, royal twins! This news just revived me, so obviously I gotta share it.

If you don't know Prince Christian and Alessandra, here's a crash course: Prince Christian is the heir to the Kingdom of Hanover Germany. While being the heir to a throne that's described as "defunct" sounds less than ideal, trust that he and his family are doing absolutely fine. As for Alessandra AKA the Princess of the Andes, she's a former lawyer, model, and a designer who comes from a super prestigious family in Peru. Prince Christian and Alessandra married in a cvil ceremony back in November 2017, tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony filled with some iconic celebs (Kate Moss, Princess Eugenie, and Princess Beatrice) in March 2018, and on July 7, 2020, they welcomed twins.

According to Hola! Spain, Alessandra gave birth in Madrid, and everyone is healthy and happy. As for their names, the royal couple named their son Nicolas and named their daughter Sofia, likely after Queen Sofía of Spain.

The family hasn't released official portraits yet, but that will likely come in due time. Congrats to the new parents!
