The photos you’ve all been waiting for are here—the first baby Sussex pictures! Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s new son was born at 5:26 a.m. on May 6, weighing 7 pounds and 3 ounces. But instead of taking traditional portraits outside the hospital right after birth, the couple chose to make tradition. They waited two days before stepping out publicly as a family today.
The newly-minted parents were glowing as they cradled their newborn, whose name they’ve yet to reveal. When reporters asked Meghan what she thought of motherhood, she gushed, “It’s magic. It’s pretty amazing.” She also gave her husband a sweet shout out: “I have the two best guys in the world, so I’m really happy.”
According to his mother and father, little Sussex “has the sweetest temperament.” As for who he takes after? “We’re still trying to figure that out,” Meghan shared. But Harry did joke that, like dad, “he’s already got a little bit of facial hair, as well. Wonderful!”
Meghan and Harry posed for a few quick photos before heading off to meet Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. “It’ll be a nice moment to introduce the baby to more family,” Meghan explained of the visit with their firstborn’s great-grandparents. Harry was happy to add that the royals now have “another great-grandchild!”
