Princess Sofia: ‘Motherhood changed my whole life’
Sweden’s Princess Sofia says motherhood has changed her “whole life”.
The royal welcomed son Prince Alexander with husband Prince Carl Philip on April 19 and while the pair have admitted that parenthood is “an adjustment”, they could not be happier.
Sofia told Sweden’s Svenskdam magazine: “Being a mother is amazing. It changes your whole life.”
And Carl added: “The first time does take some adjustment. But it’s still absolutely amazing and wonderful.”
Meanwhile, Sofia revealed Alexander is “very sweet and well-behaved” and sleeps “pretty well” at night.
She said that he changes every day and is a “mixture of us both!”
Alexander will be christened on September 9 at Stockholm’s Royal Chapel and last month the couple celebrated their first wedding anniversary.
The 36-year-old prince married the former reality star, 31, in Stockholm last June, and after a lavish honeymoon in Fiji, the brunette beauty fell pregnant with the couple’s first child.
During his wedding speech, the prince recalled to guests how he had driven to see Sofia’s father, who works in a job centre, to ask permission to propose and thanked her family for their support.
He also hailed the former model as his “role model” and praised the citizens of Sweden for accepting their union.
He said: “We never chose the tough way – it chose us.
“You fill my life with love and happiness. Today we prove that love conquers all.
“Sofia – you’ve enriched our family. Your family has received me with equally open arms. I’ve got another family.”
