The new dad said:
“I’m very excited to announce that Meghan and myself had a baby boy early this 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 are 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.”
He then added how proud he was of Meghan:
“I haven’t been at many births. This is definitely my first birth, but it was amazing, absolutely incredible.
I’m so incredibly proud of my wife, and as every father and parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to die for, so I’m just over the moon.”
Harry continued by saying that he and Meghan still haven’t decided on a name yet:
“Still thinking about names. The baby is 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, we will seeing you guys in two days time, as planned as a family to be able to share with you guys, so everybody can see the baby.”

What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child. In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days: @thelunchboxfund @littlevillagehq @wellchild @baby2baby The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤️
As written on the royal family’s official website, “Her Royal Highness and the baby are both doing well.”
