Its a boy.
Prince William and Kate Middleton became parents of an 8 lb. 6 ounce baby boy late Monday afternoon.
Both mother and child were reported doing well and will remain in the hospital overnight.
Prince William was present for the birth at 4:24 p.m., according to a press release from the royal household. The release also said the name of the baby, the couples first, would be announced in due course.
The baby will be third in line to the throne after his grandfather, Prince Charles, and his father. Crowds massed outside Buckingham Palace where a formal announcement of the babys birth was posted to cheers Monday night.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at St. Marys Hospital where William and his brother Harry also were born early Monday morning.
It was not immediately clear how long labor lasted or whether the child was delivered by natural birth or caesarian section.
Prince Charles issued a statement Monday night saying, "Both my wife and I are overjoyed at the arrival of my first grandchild. It is an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their baby boy.

Triplets! Two boys have been born on two previous threads!
Congrats to the royal family. I just hope they don’t give the kid a weird name.
Some happy news for a change. Best of luck to the both of them in their new adventure as parents. :)
I was surprised to see that they named the kid Trayvon.
Just hope he doesn’t favor gramps...
Pray it won’t be Mohammed.
How about “Cletus?”
“Schlomo” is good too.
I genuinely believe the Queen's longevity is driven by a desire to not leave the throne in the hands of Prince Charles, the Capitulater. I think her sense of duty to country drives her to live on until maybe Charles decides to pass and leave the real work to William.
Then England would have a King that understands Islam a bit more, having dealt with them face to face while serving in a war against them.
Yes, I know the Monarchy is largely ceremonial, but it is a bully pulpit with the Brits and the UK in general. Imagine the damage Liberal Charles could do...
Loved the hat on the proclaimer guy......LOL
Like Prince or Duke?
Induecourse is a strange name for a baby.
RE: Congrats to the royal family. I just hope they dont give the kid a weird name.
PRINCE TRAYVON THE FIRST !!
Seriously though, my guess is George ( after Elizabeth’s father ).
Metro-sexual and politically correct = Sue!
OMG I just heard they were going to name him “South”
Even stupid ESPN had a watch on in this matter this morning. That Mike and Mike show had a big ta-do about it. Good grief. One, I ain’t English and don’t care. There were millions born today. This kid is another. He may or may not be king in the year 2525.
My vote is for “Cosmo”
