Princess Sofia shows off her new mom-bangs and her three growing sons

I totally blanked on the fact that Prince Carl-Philip and Princess Sofia had a lil’ pandemic baby too. Of course they did! These two are a total smokeshow and he seems to like keeping her knocked up. They’ve had three kids in five years’ time! Sofia and C-P welcomed Prince Julian Herbert Folke back in March of this year. They posted photos of Julian soon after he was born, but we haven’t seen him since… until now! Look at him, sitting in his daddy’s lap.

Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip of Sweden are sharing their first photo as parents of three! The son of King Carl XVI Gustaf and his wife welcomed their third child, a baby boy they named Prince Julian, in March at Danderyd Hospital in Stockholm. That made their sons, 5-year-old Prince Alexander and 3-year-old Prince Gabriel, big brothers!

They marked their first summer as a family of five with a new photo shared on Instagram Sunday. In the portrait, baby Julian takes a seat on his father’s lap, while Sofia holds Gabriel. Alexander gives a big smile as he sits on the outdoor couch between his parents.

“A summer greeting from our family,” Princess Sofia, 36, and Prince Carl Philip, 42, captioned the sweet snap.

Princess Sofia also showed off her new look: mom bangs! She shared the first glimpse of her new haircut two weeks ago in a new portrait with her husband of six years.

Y’all know how much I hate bangs, but I have to say, Sofia is one of those women who can pull off bangs. Or more like, bangs are a chaotic neutral on her. She mostly looks tired – again, three boys under the age of six – and like she was tired of her hair and tired of all of it. She needs a vacation away from these children! Too bad Carl Philip is trying to get her pregnant again, I’m sure. I wonder if either of them wants “the girl.” With three boys, you never know. They might try for the girl.

    She is so pretty. I love the bangs on her. She didn’t look tired to me. Although, I’m sure she is.

  2. Becks1 says:

    They’ve only been married 6 years? LOL they have been busy I guess.

    And yes I like the bangs on her. I think she can pull them off.

    • Seraphina says:

      I agree. And she has a very 70s vibe going on. I like it.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Seraphina, she does!! I didn’t notice that until you called it!! Spot on!! The bangs look fabulous on her!
        They do make a beautiful family too!!

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        Yes…the 70’s vibe and I like her bangs. When I saw the picture (especially the one of her & her easy on the eyes husband) I was happy to see the revival of the bangs Suzie Quatro & Nancy Wilson had for awhile.

  3. Seraphina says:

    Kaiser, I thought we always saw eye to eye (no pun intended) but NO BANGS???? It’s either bangs or botox and I feel nauseated just seeing a needle.

    Adorable family pic. And thanks for covering the other royal houses.

  4. Robin says:

    That man is stunning.

    • ArtHistorian says:

      Fortunately, he got his looks from his mother.

      • North of Boston says:

        Reminds me of the John Hiatt song, written for his baby daughter. It ends with

        “Lucky for you, child, you look like your momma”

    • Nomegusta says:

      That man is Fiiiiine. Good gracious he’s good looking and out here flaunting that stable hairline. I stan

      • Meg says:

        ‘out here flaunting that stable hairline. I stan’
        explains why theyve had so many kids in so little time he is good looking

    • TabithaD says:

      He has a good head of hair. And he’s a few years older than Prince William, although you wouldn’t believe it to look at them.

    • Oona says:

      I don’t find him attractive at all and it’s because I know so much about his fake designer career etc etc etc. Such a turnoff!

  5. TeamMeg says:

    What a handsome family. Evidently, long bangs are what she loves. I’m looking at you Prince C-P. 😉

  6. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Picture perfect family in every sense lol. They make those pics from that other family look mechanical.

  7. Hazel says:

    They are a good looking couple

  8. lux says:

    What are mom bangs? Are they different from regular bangs? Can we just call things what they are?

    • elle says:

      Came here to ask the same thing!

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      Anything which doesn’t require constant and consistent upkeep ends in a ‘mom’ pile lol. It is a bit of overreach because anyone with an incredibly busy life most likely seeks out quick, easy and comfortable as well.

  9. Charfromdarock says:

    Cute family. I guess they won’t be getting any environmental awards!

    I don’t like bangs generally but she’s is pulling them off.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Ha! I hate that was my first thought too, but that award really rubs me the wrong way. I don’t have any kids but to some people that’s a selfish choice because I’m not raising future tax payers/consumers. But me? I think people who have *both* the emotional and financial stability (not wealth just stability) to raise multiple children have at it. The problem is that so many women globally lack the resources to not have too many children. Okay I wasn’t intending to soap box when I started this post and then I lost control. 🤦🏻‍♀️

      • BothSidesNow says:

        BettyRose, I agree with you in regards to the award.
        But you have every right to decide what is best for you and if someone doesn’t like it, they can STFU and sit down! I applaud your decision. There are men and women who do not want to have children and unfortunately, women face the biggest challenges and are always susceptible to criticism, wanted on unwanted.
        And of course you ran on about it. You have probably faced unwanted criticism from those who you love and those who are only acquaintances. It’s utter bullshit!

      • JaneBee87 says:

        @BettyRose – I don’t know that these guys do have the resources? If I were a Swedish taxpayer, I would rather irritated by this…

  10. Over it says:

    These two are hot, Willy and Kate not,

  11. sunny says:

    What a gorgeous family and a hot couple. Seriously both of them are sexy. I also love that when you see them in pictures you get the sense that they are just very attracted to one another.

    Congrats to them on their pandemic baby!

  12. molly says:

    I hate those curtain bangs. Kate Middleton tries them every couple of years, wears them for two weeks, and then spends the next year growing them back out.

  13. BayTampaBay says:

    What makes anyone think Carl Philip wants a fourth child?

  14. Green Desert says:

    These two are gorgeous and their children are adorable! I am currently enduring an Arizona summer so I have total place-envy as well; I would love to be in Sweden like right now.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ Green Desert, I am so sorry about what is happening to you and the entire SW/NW region of the US right now. It is only becoming worse and I don’t know how people survive this type of heat. I am in Texas, NE of Houston about 100 miles, and the heat here is unbearable but we are used to it. But in the NW, they aren’t and they are not prepared for it. I don’t know how anyone, especially you, can prepare or handle 117++ weather, no matter how accustomed you are to it.

      • Green Desert says:

        @BothSidesNow – I’m totally late with this reply. 🙂 I’m in Tucson so we’re not quite as bad as Phoenix. We did have a week of about 111 every day, but now the highs are back down to the upper-90’s (lol) and the monsoons are starting. We’re actually getting rain which is amazing! You’re so right about what the NW is dealing with though – I know a few people in the Pacific NW. So many up there don’t even have air conditioners, they never need it. It’s really heartbreaking.

  15. Mina_Esq says:

    They are a hot couple, so it saddens me to see such a severe case of bangs trauma.

  16. Mee yo says:

    Ahhhh if that was my husband, I’d be pregnant ALL THE TIME. He’s yummy

  17. Thirtynine says:

    I like the fringe, its soft and pretty. They look happy together. I like to see a bit of coverage of other royals.

  18. Eddee says:

    They suit her but it could also be to cover up postpartum hair loss. My baby is a month older and I’m practically bald at the temples. It’s my first and I had no idea it would get this bad. 😂
    I have been contemplating getting bangs cut in again to hide it even though I prefer my hair without bangs. My hair is also similar to hers so maybe I’ll take the first pic to the hairdresser and be ‘bangs like her please!’
