Another royal baby has arrived!

Swedish officials confirm that Princess Madeleine gave birth to a daughter on Thursday.

The 31-year-old is currently fourth in line to the throne of Sweden, but currently resides in New York City with her American banker husband Christopher O'Neill.

Princess Madeleine and Christopher welcomed their first child into the world and according to the Swedish court, "both mother and child are in good health."

A statement added that, "The Office of the Marshal of the Realm is delighted to announce that HRH Princess Madeleine gave birth to a daughter on 20 February 2014 at 10:41 p.m. local time in New York."

NEWS: Zara Phillips names her baby girl Mia Grace

The new mother—whose full title is Madeleine Therese Amelie Josephine, Princess of Sweden, Duchess of Halsingland and Gastrikland—tied the knot last June.

The couple announced that they were expecting back in September, much to the delight of the Swedish royal family.

The exciting news comes less than one month after Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughter, Zara Phillips, gave birth to her first baby.

The Olympic equestrian welcomed a baby girl, named Mia Grace, at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital in England on Friday, Jan. 17.

The newborn royal is sixteenth in line to the British throne. Her mother, however, does not hold a royal title and is not referred to as Her Royal Highness.

But royal or not, there's no doubt that Prince George has a few new pals to play with!
