[picappgallerysingle id=”866714″] Danish magazine Billedbladet had it confirmed from Princess Benedikte, the mother of Princess Nathalie zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, that her youngest daughter is pregnant. The child will be born in July this year. Princess Benedikte told Billedbladet: “Both Prince Richard and I are very happy for the young couple.”
Nathalie and the father of the baby, Alexander Johannsman became engaged on Christmas Day last year, but the engagement was not announced until January.
The couple were married in a civil ceremony just after the engagement announcement, but Nathalie says in a comment to Euro Dressage News that the religious wedding has been set for 2011, but that no definite date has been set yet.
Nathalie, at 6 months pregnant, is planned to have her last dressage competition before the birth of the baby today at the 2010 World Cup Finals. Her goal is to be back in shape by the World Equestrian Games, this year hosted in Kentucky, USA, in the end of September/start of October.
