Following the bub's arrival yesterday, Harry confirmed to reporters that Meghan and the baby were in good health, saying, "I'm very excited to announce that Meghan and myself had a baby boy this morning, a very healthy boy. Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It's been the most amazing experience I can ever have possibly imagined."

"How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, but we're both absolutely thrilled and so grateful for all the love and support of everybody out there. It's been amazing, so we just wanted to share this with everybody."

Harry also added that they were “still thinking about names” for their baby boy.

“The baby’s a little bit overdue, so we’ve had a little time to think about it. That’s the next bit,” he said.

The news of the royal baby's arrival also came via Instagram, which read:

“We are pleased to announce that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their firstborn child in the early morning on May 6th, 2019. Their Royal Highnesses’ son weighs 7lbs. 3oz."

According to reports, the Duke and Duchess will likely give us our first glimpse of baby Sussex on tomorrow.
