Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, and her husband Prince Harry have officially become royal parents! Meghan has given birth to a son. This is her first child with husband Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex.

The newborn prince was born at 5:26 a.m. local time and weighed 7lbs, 3oz.

The royal couple confirmed the news via their official Instagram on Monday.

“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.”

“The Duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their lives. More details will be shared in the forthcoming days.”

The duchess went into labor “in the early hours of this morning,” the palace said. In a break from royal tradition, the duke and duchess said last month that they would be celebrating the birth privately, which means royal fans should not expect for Meghan to pose on the steps of a hospital like Kate Middleton did after the birth of each of her three children.

However, royal fans will get to see the happy couple with their new baby soon after the birth. Within a few days after welcoming their first child, Meghan and Harry will take part in a photo op with their new baby on the grounds of Windsor Castle.
