Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg surrogacy: Gustav & Carina become parents at 54 via surrogacy


The Royal Baby: A Love Story

The first royal baby born through surrogacy has arrived. The son of Prince Gustav and Princess Carina of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, both 54 years old, the baby, a boy, arrived on May 26th, although the Danish Royal House took a few days before announcing it officially. “The prince was born in the United States,” reads a note issued by the Palace. “Both Prince Gustav and Princess Carina were present at the birth.”

The Wait for a Family

That the baby would arrive in May was already known, as well as the fact that it would be a boy, whose name is still unknown. This story has caused many perplexities in the country: surrogacy in Denmark is legal, but not in Germany, where the two live. The couple’s choice to have a child so late in life has precise motivations. In fact, the princes had to wait a long time before fulfilling their dream of family. Blame the laws of his house. According to a hereditary clause established by the prince’s grandfather in 1930, his descendants would lose their title if they did not marry a Protestant, noble and Aryan woman (Gustav Albrecht was an officer of the Wehrmacht, hence the explanation of the last point ndr) and Carina, former American model and writer with Mexican blood in her veins did not possess these “qualifications”. but love is love, and the two, together since 2008, have always been considered a de facto couple, until the green light for the wedding, on June 4, 2022.

A Law to Avert Danger

If a female had been born, the house would have passed to the closest male relative of the prince. A “danger” averted. With a surrogate in the middle, however, the baby’s gender may not be random.
