If you thought the Internet would only be talking about Game of Thrones this morning, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are here to ruin your plans. Because in the early hours of Monday, May 6, Meghan went into labour and she and Harry are now the proud parents of a healthy baby boy. Woot woot!

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. 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.
And it looks as though Meghan — who is also doing well, FYI — got her wish and was able to have a natural home birth, as no ambulance or helicopter was spotted whisking her away to a nearby hospital. All is good though; Meg had her mother on hand and Doria Ragland is equally “overjoyed by the arrival of her first grandchild” and with the family at Frogmore, according to a statement from the Palace.
You know who else is pumped? Everyone. And Twitter was happy to share in the excitement.

I like that this alert makes it sound like the source for the royal baby news is the royal baby pic.twitter.com/6QnlpcAGHm

Meghan Markle is gonna be criticized for not giving birth the right way, isn’t she?

Don’t care about the royal baby or Game of Thrones, but Twitter is a little more pleasant when everyone else is talking about it.

Thinking of Princess Diana today, who would have been grandmother to #BabySussex. She would have been be so proud of her little boy #PrinceHarry and #Megan and their new #royalbaby. They could honour her memory by calling him “Spencer”. pic.twitter.com/M81fLcE1lc
