And now the prince breaks his silence! Our dear Meghan Markle went into labor earlier today and gave birth to a royal baby boy, and although the new mom is staying out of the spotlight for the time being, Prince Harry was not afraid to gush about the newest member of his family in a breaking interview.

  • Prince Harry stepped out shortly after Meghan gave birth to their son to talk about how "absolutely thrilled" he is.

    The prince was all excitement and smiles while he spoke in front of the cameras at Windsor and remarked, "It's brilliant. I'm absolutely thrilled. We're really grateful for all the love and support shown to us."

    Meghan delivered a healthy 7 lb. 3 oz. baby boy earlier this morning, and according to the duke, mom and baby are doing just fine. "As every father and parent will ever say, you know, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to die for, so I'm just over the moon," Harry added.

  • Although Baby Sussex came very early in the morning, Prince Harry couldn't be happier about today's events.

    Prince Harry joked about getting just two hours' sleep, calling the birth "the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined." 

    The prince also mentioned that this was his first time witnessing a birth and noted, "It was amazing, absolutely incredible, and, as I said, I'm so incredibly proud of my wife. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension."

  • Of course, we're all just dying to see the Sussex crew all together as a family of three, and Prince Harry revealed that's all happening soon.

    He said in the interview that they are planning to step out in about two days so everyone can see Meghan and the baby. He continued, "That's the next bit (choosing a name), but for us I think we will be seeing you guys in probably two days' time as planned as a family to be able to share it with you guys and so everyone can see the baby."

    Well, that's much better than the Instagram reveal we all thought was going to happen.

    We've known for quite some time that Meghan had no intention of doing the photo op on the steps of the hospital like Kate has done for her three kiddos, so it makes sense that the Sussex crew is doing things their own way. We waited this long for Baby Sussex ... a few more days won't hurt us, right?

  • Harry also let us know that he and Meghan are still thinking about names for the new baby boy.

    The prince said, "The baby's a little bit overdue, so we've had a little bit of time to think about it." 

    We would have thought that nine months would be plenty of time to brainstorm some potential royal baby names, but take your time, Sussexes! Can't rush a decision as important as this one.

  • The prince kept his interview short (probably itching to get back to his wife and new baby), but we'll take any bits of information we can get!

    We're all itching for more details on how Meghan and the baby are doing, but patience seems to be a theme with this family. Like the duke said, we'll all have to wait a few more days to see the whole family together, so in the meantime, we'll just keep this Prince Harry video on repeat. 

    Cheers to Harry, Meghan, and the soon-to-be-named Baby Sussex!
