GAUHATI, India - The tiny Himalayan nation of Bhutan has a new crown prince.
The Royal Media Office in capital Thimphu said Saturday that the baby boy was born on Friday to King Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck and his wife, Queen Jetsun Pema.
Wangchuck married Jetsun Pema in a Buddhist ceremony in 2011.
The child, the royal couple's first, was delivered by a medical team at the Lingkana Palace in Thimphu.
The media statement says that King Wangchuck was by the side of the queen during the delivery.
