Pavlos and Marie-Chantal of Greece welcome fifth child

07/01/2008 at 03:30 PM ET

Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece, 41, and his wife, Princess Marie-Chantal, 39, have welcomed their fifth child, a son. The baby boy, who’s name has not been announced, arrived at 6:45 a.m. at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Sunday, June 29th. He weighed in at 8 lbs, 8 oz, and mother and son are doing "very well," according to a rep.

The new baby joins siblings Princess Maria-Olympia, 11 ½, Prince Constantine Alexios, 9 ½, Prince Achileas-Andreas, 7 ½, and Prince Odysseas-Kimon, 3 ½. The pregnancy was announced in January.

The family continues to use their courtesy European royalty titles; however, the Hellenic Republic abolished the monarchy in 1974.

They had the baby in CA? Why? Do they not live in Greece?

Lynsey on

No, they don’t live in Greece. Only recently did King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie get the right to move back to Tatoi Palace in Greece, but AFAIK, none of their children live in Greece. Pavlos & Marie-Chantal live in London, Alexia lives in Spain (more specifically the Canary Islands) Nikolaos and Theodora live in London and Philippos is a student at Georgetown in the US.

The reason they probably went to Cedars-Sinai is because when Marie-Chantal had Odysseas-Kimon, she experienced a lot of blood loss, and both she and Odysseas nearly died, so this time, they wanted to take extra precaution and had the baby at a well-respected and state-of-the-art hospital in case of an emergency.

Aww I was so hoping for them to have a second daughter. They have beautiful boys though so I’m sure this one will be no different. I can’t wait to hear is name.

Thanks Lynsey :-)

Nice to hear they are still together. Of the three sisters (Pia, Marie-Chantal and Alexandra), Marie-Chantal’s marriage is the only one that has worked out.

congratulations CBB for finally including the fact that Greece NO LONGER has a royal family and that it was abolished in the 70s. as a proud greek i am not denying our history and the fact that we had a royal family but it kinda annoys me that a lot of media outlets continue to use their titles without adding the fact that they’re not legitimate royals anymore. totally off topic i know but thanks CBB for getting it right!
