HALIFAX -- The Shambhala royal family grew by one with the birth of a baby girl in Halifax.

A statement from the IWK Health Centre in Halifax says Khandro Tseyang, the Sakyong Wangmo, gave birth to her third daughter at the hospital on Friday.

Mitchell Levy, the family's physician, says the mother and daughter were doing well.

The baby, Dzedron Okar Yangchen Ziji Mukpo, was born at 4:49 a.m., weighing seven pounds, 15 ounces.

The statement says the child will be known as Jetsun Dzedron, which means Lamp of Beauty.

The couple's first child, Jetsun Drukmo, was born at the IWK Health Centre in 2010, as well as their second child, Jetsun Yudra in 2013.
