His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, celebrated his 73rd birthday last week.

It turns out it was an extra special day for the Dubai Ruler as he welcomed a new addition to the family, a grandson.

Sheikh Mohammed’s son, His Highness Sheikh Majid bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and his wife Hessa Beljafla welcomed their fifth child together on Friday, July 15.

As reported by Arabian Royal Agency, the couple named the newborn Maktoum.

Sheikh Majid and his wife wed back in 2014 and welcomed twins Mohammed and Dubai the following year in July 2015.

To mark the birth of his new son, Sheikh Majid shared a photo of himself with his five children on Instagram. The newborn Maktoum was being held by his eldest brother Mohammed.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid is known for being a family man, particularly when it comes to his grandchildren.
