Andrea Casiraghi and fiancée Tatiana Santo Domingo have become parents for the first time after welcoming a baby boy on Thursday.
Princess Caroline“s press office confirmed the news via a statement which read: “Her Serene Highness Princess Caroline has the pleasure of announcing the birth of her grandson, born on 21 March 2013.
The missive added: “Both mother and baby are doing well”.
The newest member of the Grimaldi clan won”t be a potential successor to the Monegasque throne given that Andrea and Tatiana have yet to marry. This now leaves the path clear for any future children that reigning Prince Albert and his wife Charlene may welcome into the family.
The baby has arrived at a special time for Monaco. The Municipality is preparing to celebrate its annual Rose Ball, and all eyes will be on first time grandmother Caroline if she attends with her other children Charlotte and Pierre, as is custom.
