The sweet, never-before-seen snaps include several of the couple's children, including their eight-month-old baby son, Prince Gabriel. In one photo taken by Princess Sofia, their two-year-old, Prince Alexander, can be spotted fussing over the new baby, and the couple captioned the snap: "Three weeks ago our beloved son Gabriel, Alexander's little brother, came," accompanied with a love heart emoji.
