Princess Beatrice recently became not only a new wife, but also a new stepmom.

Her new stepson is Christopher Woolf, nicknamed "Wolfie," the four-year-old shared by the princess's new husband, Italian property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, and his ex, architect and designer Dara Haung. Wolfie, born in 2016, played an important role in Edoardo and Beatrice's surprise Windsor nuptials last week serving as both the best man and page boy.

Per People, this would be the first time since Duchess Camilla and Prince Charles nuptials in 2005 that a member of the British royal family has become a stepmother. Princess Beatrice is also the first grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II to have the title of stepmother as well.

"Beatrice is a wonderful and very hands-on stepmom," a source told the outlet.

Reportedly, Beatrice has "embraced [Wolfie] as part of her life from the outset," even before her wedding to Mapelli Mozzi.

"Edo is easily one of the best dads, he is so involved, and Beatrice is already showing that she’s a fantastic step-mummy," added another source. "They’ve been on family vacations together [with his son]. They are really happy."

Princess Beatrice and Mapelli Mozzi married on July 17th in a small-scale ceremony near Windsor Castle. The couple were originally set to wed in May with a much larger affair at the Buckingham Palace Gardens, but scrapped their original plans due to government guidelines amid the coronavirus pandemic.
