Here s hoping the Swedish palace has a few spare bedrooms!

After a busy year (which saw the birth of three royal babies!), Princess Madeleine s husband, British-American businessman Chris O Neill, has hinted that even more little ones may be on the way.

“We want to have more children. Both of us want a big family,” the proud father of two told the Swedish newspaper Expressen. “One or two more in future, absolutely!”

“But for now, we’ll wait. We’re focusing on Nicolas and Leonore,” he continued. “Making sure they get our time and 100 percent of our attention.

The royal family of four moved from Stockholm to London (where O Neill is the managing director of Wilton Payments Limited) last fall.

“Our priority is being home in the evening with the children, he said. We love family dinners, just being at home. Madeleine and I agree that life doesn’t get much better than this.

O’Neill revealed that his two young children, 2-year-old Princess Leonore and 1-year-old Prince Nicolas, have settled into life in what he describes as a “child-friendly city.”

“They’re such completely different characters. Nicolas is a sweet little boy. Leonore is a determined and confident young girl,” said O’Neill, who recently described his spirited toddler as a “wild monkey!”

And Nicolas is already on his way to keeping up with his big sis!

“Nicolas, who celebrated his first birthday on June 15, took his first steps the other day!” the proud dad revealed. “They might not have been the most sure-footed, but they were his first steps.

“Leonore started walking when she was 12 months old. But I read somewhere that girls usually walk before boys,” he said, adding, “Nicolas watches every single thing that Leonore does. He adores her.”

And the little prince already has one special trait in common with his race car-loving uncle and grandfather.

“Nicolas has inherited something from his uncle Carl Philip and grandfather King Carl XVI Gustaf,” O’Neill said. “He loves everything that has a motor – he’s completely obsessed with everything related to engines.”
