The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William have welcomed their first child, a baby boy!
Kate went into London’s St. Mary’s Hospital early Monday morning, some four hours after the Duchess, 31, gave birth.
The message was delivered in a press release, stating that a son was born at 4:24 p.m. (LONDON TIME), weighing 8 lbs., 6 oz. (That’s FOUR HOURS before the announcement was made to the public.)
The birth news will be placed on an easel on the Buckingham Palace forecourt. A gun salute in the royal parks in London is expected to follow.
The new arrival is third in line to the throne, following the baby’s father, William, and (first-in-line) grandfather, Prince Charles, 64.
Here’s how some of the celebs reacted to the news:
