Just two days before Christmas, Prince Albert and Princess Charlene released the first photos of their newborns.

The French weekly Paris Match reports that the baby clothing chosen for the Christmas-themed pictures, with Princess Gabriella dressed in pink and Prince Jacques in baby blue, was inspired by what Albert’s late mother Princess Grace picked for her baby shoots.

“I was present in the operating room and assisted at their birth. I helped my wife as I could – that’s to say, by my presence. It was wonderful. I don’t have the words to describe how it felt then or the deep joy I feel now,” Albert told the weekly. “Having children – and twins at that – is an extraordinary experience. It’s unique. And it’s a challenge for us as parents.”

The newborns, who were born Dec. 10, will be presented publicly Jan. 7.

Everyone is welcome to come to the palace square on the special day. An official holiday was announced before the children’s birth to celebrate the event.
