Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just welcomed a healthy baby boy, and now they’re excited to start their new life as a family of three!

After getting a chance to spend some time with his new baby, Prince Harry addressed the press for the first time as a father.

Smiling from ear to ear, Prince Harry said:

“I’m very excited to announce that Meghan and myself had a baby boy this early morning. A very healthy boy. Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It’s been the most amazing experience I could ever possibly imagine.

“How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension. But we’re both absolutely thrilled. And so grateful to all the love and support from everybody out there. It’s been amazing. So we just wanted to share this with everybody.”

When asked about the baby’s name, Harry admitted that he and Meghan are still choosing. He explained:

“[We’re] still thinking about names. The baby’s a little bit overdue, so we’ve had a little bit of time to think about it. That’s the next bit. But for us, I think we’ll be seeing you guys in probably two days’ time as planned, as a family, to be able to share it with you guys and so everyone can see the baby.”

Finally, Harry opened up about how incredible it was to watch his baby boy being born:

“I haven’t been in many births. This is definitely my first birth. But it was amazing. Absolutely incredible. And as I said, I’m so incredibly proud of my wife. And as every father and parent would ever say, your baby’s absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to die for. So I’m just over the moon.”

Congratulations to the happy parents! We can’t wait to get our first glimpse of Baby Sussex in a few days.
