New dad Prince Harry is absolutely glowing as he announces the much anticipated arrival of his firs child. He and wife Meghan Markle welcomed their son early this morning.
“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.,” the couple announced in an Instagram post earlier this morning.
And now, we have follow-up video of Harry announcing the big news himself.
“Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It’s been the most amazing experience I could every possibly imagine,” he told a group of reporters outside Windsor Castle. “How any woman does what they do is behind comprehension, but we’re both absolutely thrilled.”
Harry says he and Meghan are still deciding on baby names. Baby Sussex takes Prince Andrew’s place as seventh in line for the throne. But he’s still behind his cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
Harry says he and Meghan plan to share more details in a couple of days “as a family to be able to share it with you guys so everyone can see the baby!”.
The couple announced last month that they’d be eschewing the royal tradition of posing with their baby on the hospital steps like both Kate Middleton and Harry’s mom, Princess Diana, famously did.
