Princess Charlene of Monaco is expecting twins with Prince Albert II, confirming rumors that two new bundles of joy would be welcomed by the royal family.

"I feel absolutely great," the princess told Hello! magazine during an interview in New York. The magazine reported Princess Charlene and Prince Albert were in New York for a number of charity events.

People magazine noted the babies will be the first for Princess Charlene, 36, a former Olympic swimmer from South Africa. She married Prince Albert, 56, in 2011. He had two children from previous relationships – Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, 22, and Alexandre Coste, 11.

"I want motherhood very much, but everything is in God's hands," Princess Charlene once told Italian Vanity Fair, according to OK! magazine.

Prince Albert, the son of Prince Rainier III and the late Hollywood actress Grace Kelly, and Princess Charlene first met in 2000 during a swimming competition, reported Us Weekly.

Hello! reported that while in New York, Princess Charlene attended the Clinton Global Citizen Awards, where she met Chelsea Clinton, who recently gave birth to her first child.

"(Chelsea Clinton) and the princess had a chance to have a meaningful conversation about philanthropy," a source told Hello! "Chelsea was also happy to chat with the princess about her impending motherhood."

The royal couple was spotted at the annual picnic in 'Le Parc Princesse Antoinette' in Monaco in September, reported the Daily Mail.

"The 36-year-old royal certainly seems to be enjoying an early pregnancy glow, looking tanned and radiant at her husband's side holding a delicate bouquet of pink and white roses," noted the Daily Mail's Katy Winter.

Princess Charlene, the daughter of Michael and Lynette Wittstock, was born in what is now Zimbabwe and the family moved to Transvaal, South Africa, in 1989, according to her biography. She was a member of South Africa's Olympic swimming team at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

She competed in the 4x100 medley relay for the South African squad and retired form competitive swimming in 2007.
