Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s newborn baby boy isn’t even a day old yet, but he’s already amassed plenty of A-list fans. This morning, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced the birth of their first child together via their newly created social media account. Not long after, their celebrity friends started rushing online to greet the royal family’s latest addition.

Patrick J. Adams, who played Markle’s on-screen husband on Suits, was one of the first stars to chime in with a congratulatory message. (Adams and his wife, Troian Bellisario, welcomed a daughter of their own last October; both were also in attendance at the royal wedding in May 2018.)

“Just heard that the world just got heavier by 7 pounds and 3 ounces,” Adams tweeted. “Much love to him and his incredible parents. Learned first hand 7 months ago how transformational becoming a parent is and couldn’t be happier for Meghan and Harry as they begin this adventure.” He finished his note off with the best idea ever: “#playdatesoon.”

Sarah Rafferty, a second Suits costar, also took to Twitter to congratulate the couple.

“Hearts are leaping for a beautiful, wondrous and healthy baby boy!” she tweeted. “Sending much love and wishes for every blessing across the pond today and everyday!”

James Corden, another guest at the duchess and duke’s wedding, added his own well wishes to the mix—tongue-in-cheek ones, naturally. He retweeted a funny meme about the ceremonial baby announcement easel placed outside Buckingham Palace.

Ellen DeGeneres shared her congratulations in similarly hilarious form, writing: “The #royalbaby is here! Congratulations, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. The baby is 7th in line for the throne, which is crazy, because right now I’m 7th in line for the key-making kiosk at my grocery store. @RoyalFamily.”

Even Michelle Obama got in on the congratulations game, adding her own sweet sentiments.

“Congratulations, Meghan and Harry!” she tweeted. “Barack and I are so thrilled for both of you and can’t wait to meet him. #RoyalBaby.”

Official photos of the royal baby are expected to be released Wednesday.
