We're always up for a good dose of royal baby news, and this bit comes at the perfect time. Far enough out of Will and Kate's spotlight, Princess Madeleine of Sweden and her New York banker husband, Christopher O'Neill, announced that they are expecting their first child!

Just this past June, the couple exchanged vows in Stockholm, and clearly didn't waste any time trying to grow their royal family.

If you're a little rusty on your Swedish monarchy, we don't blame you. A little refresher: Swedish royalty primarily serve as public figures, with limited actual power in the country. Fun fact: The Swedish monarchy is one of the oldest in the world—the country has had a king for more than 1,000 years!

The happy couple is expecting a boy or girl in March of next year. Congratulations!
