LONDON - Prince Harry told reporters shortly after announcing the birth of his first child with Meghan Markle that he is "just over the moon."
The new dad spoke Monday outside of Windsor Castle to say that both the new baby boy and mother were doing "incredibly well."
"It's been the most amazing experience I could've ever possibly imagined, and how any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, but we're both absolutely thrilled and so grateful to all the love and support from everybody out there," The Duke of Sussex said, beaming. "It's been amazing so we just wanted to share this with everybody. "
The new royal baby has yet to be named and was born a bit overdue, Harry said.
"The baby is still a little bit overdue so we've had a little bit of time to think about it," he told reporters regarding the baby's name.
Harry said more details will be shared in the coming days as the new family makes their debut together.
The new baby, weighing 7 pounds 3 ounces, will be seventh in line to the British throne and Queen Elizabeth II's eighth great-grandchild. The child will also be eligible for dual British-U.S. citizenship if Meghan and Harry want to go through the application process.
Smiling, he called the experience "absolutely incredible."
"I haven't been at many births. This is definitely my first birth but it was amazing, absolutely incredible," he told reporters. "As I said I'm so incredibly proud of my wife and as every father and parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to die for, so I'm just over the moon."
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also shared the exciting news on their Instagram account.
