Bring out the bubbly: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have welcomed a healthy baby boy!
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have just made their royal announcement via—yup, you guessed it!—their official Instagram account, which was launched only a month ago. “We are pleased to announce that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their firstborn child in the early morning on May 6th, 2019. Their Royal Highnesses’ son weighs 7lbs. 3oz,” it says in the caption. “The Duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their lives.”
In a video posted by Sky News, an elated Prince Harry has also given a short interview and even answered a few questions, including what they’ll name their firstborn. "We are still thinking about names. The baby's a little bit overdue, so we've had a little bit of time to think about it, but that's the next bit,” he says in the clip. "We will be seeing you guys in two days' time as planned, as a family, to share it with you guys so everyone can see the baby."
The royal newborn is the seventh in line of succession after Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and Prince Harry.
Congratulations to the happy parents!
