Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia of Sweden couldn't be happier since becoming first-time parents. The royal couple, who welcomed their son Prince Alexander back in April, have opened up about their baby boy in a new interview. "It's amazing," Sofia told Svenskdam, as little Alexander lay peacefully in his stroller. "Having children changes your whole life." She proudly added: "[Alexander] is very sweet and well-behaved."

Asked who her son most resembles, the 31-year-old replied: "He's a little mixture of both of us... [He's] different every day."

And thankfully for the Swedish royals, their little Prince sleeps "pretty well" at night, according to his mum – unlike Prince George, whom Prince William famously said "never slept" when he was young.

Just like his wife, Carl Philip is in his element as a new parent - though he did admit: "The first time does take some adjustment, of course. But it is still absolutely amazing and wonderful."

The happy couple, who celebrated their first wedding anniversary on 13 June, recently spent a weekend apart; Carl Philip hit the circuit at the Swedish Touring Car Championship in Falkenberg on Saturday 9 July, while Sophia was spotted at the Walk in the Park music festival with her brother-in-law Prince Daniel.

However, things took a scary turn for Carl Philip when he lost control of his vehicle, and inadvertently ran rival driver Mattias Andersson off the road. "He came and apologised afterwards," Mattias told Swedish newspaper outlet Corren. "[Carl Philip] explained it be saying that he lost control of the car."
