Delighted Felipe and Letizia present new daughter Sofia

4 MAY 2007

Proud parents Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia showed off the latest addition to their family in Madrid on Friday evening.

Greeting the large crowd of well-wishers who had gathered outside the hospital, the beaming parents presented five-day old baby Sofia to the world. Their daughter, dressed in white and with ribbons at her wrists, slept soundly in the arms of her mum, who was the picture of health after giving birth on Sunday by cesarean section.

While 34-year-old Letizia, elegantly attired in a smart rose-pink suit, cradled the newborn - who is named after her grandmother, Queen Sofia, Felipe carried their elder daughter Leonor. And the 18-month-old youngster was evidently not going to let her little sister steal too much of the limelight, amusing onlookers by grasping a pair of media microphones, much to the delight of those present.
