Baby Sussex Is Here! Everything We Know About Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s First Child

It’s official: He's here.

On May 6, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first child together, a baby boy. The Duchess of Sussex, 37, gave birth in the early morning on May 6, 2019, according to the @SussexRoyal Instagram. Their Royal Highnesses’ son weighs 7 pounds, 3 ounces, and the "duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their lives. More details will be shared in the forthcoming days," the caption reads.

Buckingham Palace announced Markle had gone into labor "in the early hours of Monday morning," according to the BBC.

We previously reported that the couple might have the baby closer to their new home, though no word on whether Markle gave birth at the couple's new home of Frogmore Cottage or at nearby Frimley Park Hospital has been released yet.

Baby Sussex is the seventh in line to the throne behind Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis and Prince Harry. NBD.

Congratulations to the new parents! May your days be filled with nappies, bottles and night nurses.
