Prince Harry couldn’t wait to be a dad, and it really shows now that he’s welcomed a son! Shortly after his wife, Meghan Markle, gave birth, the proud father stepped out to gush about the “amazing” experience to reporters.
“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.”
The new dad went on to awe over the beauty of childbirth and his wife’s (and all mothers’) remarkable strength. “It’s been the most amazing experience,” he shared with a giddy laugh. “How any woman does all that they do is beyond comprehension,” he added with a hilarious “mind blown” gesture.
The child arrived just before 5:30 a.m. local time and weighs 7 pounds and 3 ounces. As for the little boy’s moniker? Harry had this to say: “We’re still thinking about names.” He did joke, however, that “the baby’s a little overdue, so we did have some time to think about it.”
For now, the royal is just overjoyed to be a father. “As I said, I’m so incredibly proud of my wife … This little thing is absolutely to die for, so I’m just over the moon.”
