Princess Stéphanie of Luxembourg is still not ready for motherhood. The Belgium-born royal turned 32 on Feb. 18. The princess gave an exclusive interview to a French magazine where she revealed that she is not yet ready to become a mother.
“I don’t have any plans to become a mother. For the moment, I’m enjoying spending time with my husband,” said Stéphanie, speaking to French magazine Point de Vue on the occasion of her 32nd birthday. She was thought to be responding to recent speculation that she is pregnant.
European media reported that Stéphanie was expecting, after she was spotted wearing loose and baggier clothing. However, Stéphanie knowns as the Hereditary Grand Duchess shut off the speculations reported in the media saying that she and her husband Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg are not yet ready to have a baby.
Stéphanie and her husband Guillaume dated for around two years before announcing their engagement in April 2012. They tied the knot in October 2012 in a civil ceremony at the Town Hall. Their civil wedding was followed by a larger religious wedding at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Luxembourg.
Before their wedding, Guillaume, 34 and his wife said they wanted to wait a few years before starting a family. The blonde is the youngest of eight children; her father is Count Philippe de Lannoy and her late mother was Countess Alix de Lannoy. Meanwhile, her husband is expected to succeed his father Grand Duke Henri to the throne.
He has four younger siblings Prince Félix, Prince Louis, Princess Alexandra and Prince Sébastien although Louis, who has two sons with his wife Princess Tessy, gave up his succession rights and those of his children Gabriel and Noah upon his marriage. After Guillaume, Prince Félix is second-in-line to the throne, followed by baby Amalia who is third-in-line.
