This is all very exciting!
The Official Instagram of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have just announced it's a... BOY! He weighs 7lbs 3 oz. Both mom and baby are healthy and doing well. Welcome to the world sweet baby boy!
When Prince Harry and Meghan launched their Instagram account the other day, they set a record, attracting one million followers faster than anyone ever before, including the Pope and a Korean pop star. I am willing to bet that we will see the first pictures of the new baby there.
As previously reported Prince Harry and Meghan made the decision to keep the birth plan of their child private, noting that the announcement of the birth would be made after they have had time to celebrate as a new family.
Meghan decided not to give birth in the Lindo Wing at St Mary's hospital and will not be posing with the newborn and Harry on the steps as previously done by Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and the late Princess Diana.
The first glimpse of the baby "“ who is now seventh in line to the throne "“ plus more details including the baby's name is expected to be revealed in the next few days.
People are VERY excited about this:
