The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are FINALLY proud parents to a bouncing baby boy, and they couldn’t wait to share their good news with the world on July 22! Read their emotional statement.
Prince William has spoken out after welcoming his and wife Kate Middleton‘s bundle of joy, and it’s clear that they couldn’t be any more excited! As the world welcomed the new heir to the throne, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge revealed a heartwarming message about their little boy.
Prince William & Kate Middleton Release Statement
Kate, 31, gave birth to a 8 pound 6 ounce healthy baby boy on July 22 at 4:24 p.m. local time, and the couple officially released the following statement to the public.
“We could not be happier,” said Prince William immediately following the birth. And he is not the only one who is excited!
In an official press statement following the news of the birth of his first grandson, Charles, Prince of Wales shared some touching words of pride:
Both my wife and I are overjoyed at the arrival of my first grandchild. It is an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their baby boy. Grandparenthood is a unique moment in anyone’s life, as countless kind people have told me in recent months, so I am enormously proud and happy to be a grandfather for the first time and we are eagerly looking forward to seeing the baby in the near future.
As excited as we all are for the royal baby — there was even celebration in the streets of London after the birth announcement — it’s obvious there’s no joy like parents experiencing the birth of a child.
Royal Baby Born — Prince William On Paternity Leave
After his little bundle of joy arrived, the new dad is breaking tradition, and embarking on a much-needed paternity leave from his duties as a rescue pilot in the Royal Air Force. The time away from his high-stress job will ensure that he will not only get to bond with his baby, but that he’ll also be a loving helping hand to his wife!
We love that Kate and Will are so modern, and are doing a great job of being hands-on parents. What do YOU think of their statement, HollyMoms? Are you excited for the new parents?
