PRINCE William is speaking out after the birth of his first child.
The British royal’s wife, Kate Middleton, welcomed their baby boy on Monday, July 22.
The little bundle of joy, whose name is not yet known, was welcomed into the world at 4.24pm and weighed a healthy 8lbs 6oz.
In a statement Monday, William revealed his joy at becoming a daddy.
“We could not be happier,” the Duke of Cambridge said.
Most of the world heard the news of the royal baby’s birth when the Palace confirmed it in a press release and then sent a town crier to the steps of the hospital. But select members of the royal family heard the news directly from Prince William himself.
According to Us Weekly, the Duke personally called his father, Prince Charles, his younger brother, Prince Harry, his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and his in-laws, Michael and Carole Middleton, after the birth of the royal baby.
“The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry & families have been told and are delighted,” the Twitter account for Clarence House stated. “Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well and will remain in hospital overnight.”
Meanwhile, Prince Charles has ssued a statement expressing his excitement.
“Both my wife and I are overjoyed at the arrival of my first grandchild,” he said. “It is an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their baby boy.”
