The royal family has a lot to celebrate today as a new member of the family has made his entrance into the world. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, welcomed their first child, a boy, in the early hours of Monday morning.

Buckingham Palace shared the news that Meghan gave birth at 5:26 a.m. and that her mother, Doria Ragland, was with the new parents at their home, Frogmore Cottage. The newborn boy weighed 7 pounds, 3 ounces, the royal couple wrote on Instagram. The couple have yet to reveal the baby’s name.

Prince Harry also took the time to talk to reporters outside the family’s residence. “This little thing is absolutely to die for, so I’m just over the moon,” shared Prince Harry. “Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It’s been the most amazing experience I can ever possibly imagine. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, and we’re both absolutely thrilled.”

Harry also joked with reporters that he hadn’t “been at many births” and that his son’s was “definitely my first birth.” Harry also shared how he was “so incredibly proud” of Meghan. As far as when the public will get its first glimpse of the new baby, Harry shared  “I think we’ll be seeing you guys in probably two days’ time.”

The new baby is Queen Elizabeth’s eighth great-grandchild and the seventh in line to the British throne.

Congrats to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!
