Bhutan’s royal couple King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Queen Jetsun Pema welcomed their first child on Friday, February 5.

“Our happiness knows no bounds, as we announce the Royal Birth of His Royal Highness The Gyalsey on 5th February 2016,” said a post on the queen’s Facebook page today.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday extended his greetings to the royal couple of Bhutan on the birth of their first child.

In the post, the royal couple also extended their gratitude to the Bhutanese medical team for their service.
The baby’s name has yet to be announced.

The post continued: “Their Majesties also expressed heartfelt gratitude to the Zhung Dratshang, Rabdeys, and other religious organisations who performed prayer ceremonies in all the Dzongs and Lhakhangs across the country for the wellbeing of His
Royal Highness, Their Majesties, and the people of Bhutan.”

Bhutan which is known as the land of the “last Shangri-La” in the South Asian kingdom, home to just 750,000 people. Bhutan measures its economic progress by the Gross National Happiness index, a scale they claim has worked for them.

The royal couple tied the knot in 2011 in an elaborate fairy tale wedding ceremony.
