Prince Harry's Joke About His Newborn Son Will Leave You In Happy Tears
Baby Sussex is finally here and no one could be happier than his parents. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry introduced their newborn to the world on Wednesday morning, glowing as they posed with their first child, who is just two days old. As the happy couple smiled for the cameras and talked about the joys of parenthood, Prince Harry cracked a joke about his newborn son and it caught us all by surprise.
When asked to pose by reporters, Prince Harry turned the couple's little bundle of joy toward the cameras, joking, "He's already got a little bit of facial hair as well, wonderful. It's in the family."
While the baby may have taken after his father in the facial hair department, the couple says they are "still trying to figure out" who the baby looks like. "Everyone says that babies change so much over two weeks," Prince Harry added. "We're basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really. But his looks are changing every single day, so who knows."
The new father also described parenting so far as "great." "Parenting is amazing," he told reporters, beaming. "It's only been two and a half days, three days, but we're just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy."
Markle, who was glowing beside her "two best guys in the world," said that being a mother to her newborn was "magic." "It's pretty amazing!" she told reporters. Markle also described their son's personality in the past two days. "He's calm, he's just been a dream," she said.
This is the first time the two have introduced their first born to the world since his arrival earlier this week. The couple welcomed their first born into the world on the morning of Monday, May 6, weighing at 7 lbs. 3 oz.
Prince Harry was by his wife's side during the birth, according to an announcement made by the royal family shortly following the baby's arrival. The announcement also said that the baby's great grandmother Queen Elizabeth, along with other royals from the family, were "delighted with the news" of the baby's birth.
Prince William and Kate Middleton, along with many others around the world, also congratulated the couple on the happy news. According to The Daily Express, the Duke of Duchess of Cambridge even had some wise words for the new parents. "I’m very pleased and glad to welcome my brother to the sleep deprivation society that is parenting!" Prince William reportedly joked, as noted by The Daily Express.
Shortly following the birth, Prince Harry told reporters that he was "very excited" to be a new dad. "It's the most amazing experience I could possibly imagine," he said in his first post-baby interview. "We are both absolutely thrilled." The new father was beaming with pride as he spoke of his wife, who he said was also healthy after giving birth.
Now that the wait for the newborn's arrival is over, the beaming new parents have some important decisions to make, facial hair aside. What the baby's name will be, which is yet to be announced, is just one of the many decisions facing the couple as they finally enter parenthood.
