OSLO (Reuters Life!) - Norway's Princess Martha Louise gave birth at home to a baby girl on Monday, to be named Emma Tallulah Behn, the royal palace announced.

Martha and her husband Ari Behn already have two daughters, Maud Angelica born in 2003 and Leah Isadora born in 2005.

"The birth took place in the couple's home," the palace said in a statement, adding that the mother and baby were both well.

Martha Louise, age 37, is the daughter of King Harald and Queen Sonja and fourth in line to the throne after her younger brother Crown Prince Haakon and his two children.
