Don Juan Valentín de Todos los Santos Urdangarín y de Borbón (born 29 September 1999), in Basque: Joan Balentín Urdangarin de Borbon, is the eldest son of the Infanta Cristina of Spain and Iñaki Urdangarín. Juan is seventh in the line of succession to the Spanish Throne, after his mother.
The newspaper ABC reported that, upon birth, he measured 53 cm and weighed 4.030 kg.
Three months after his birth in Barcelona, the young member of the Spanish Royal Family was baptized on 12 December 1999 in the city's Zarzuela Palace. ¡Hola! online magazine wrote that the baptism was performed by the Archbishop of Madrid, Cardinal Antonio Maria Rouco Varela. According to Royal Family tradition, the holy water used to baptize Juan was from the River Jordan.
Juan's godparents include his aunt, the Infanta Elena and his uncle Mikel Urdangarín. He was named Juan in honor of his great-grandfather, the Count of Barcelona and his grandfather, the King of Spain; and Valentín, after his father's great-grand-uncle, Saint Valentín of Berriochoa, or Berriotxoa, and "Todos los Santos" (English: "All Saints") as is customary among the Bourbons. ABC indicated that he was also named Juan to honor his paternal grandfather, Juan Mariá Urdangarín. Sometimes the family, and even the media, call him "Juanito", in line with the common practice for Spanish boys to have the affectionate "ito" added to their names.
