#New Proud Dad😍😭 "I'm very excited to announce that Meghan and myself had a baby boy this morning, a very healthy baby boy. I'm so incredibly proud of my wife. It's brilliant, I'm absolutely thrilled. We're really grateful for all the love and support shown to us. It's been overdue so we have had a little bit of time to think about names so that's the next bit. I haven't been at many births. This is my first birth. It was amazing and absolutely incredible. I'm incredibly proud of my wife. Every father and parent will say your baby is absolutely amazing but this little thing is absolutely to die for. I'm over the moon". #britishroyalfamily #britishroyals #princeharry #dukeofsussex #meghanmarkle #duchessofsussex #harryandmeghan #instaroyals #royalcouple #royalbaby #royalnews #babysussex #itsaboy
The Duke of Sussex has expressed his desire to have children in several interviews. Prince Harry told Katie Couric in 2012 that having kids in the near future was a matter of finding “someone who’s willing to take on the job” of being his wife. The Duke of Sussex further shared his hope of having a family during an interview with Good Morning America in 2016.
“I hope [my mum is] looking down, you know, with tears in her eyes, being incredibly proud of what we’ve established,” Prince Harry said. “I’m sure she’s longing for me to have kids so she can be a grandmother again. … I can’t wait for the day…it will be fantastic,” he added. “I adore kids. I enjoy everything that they bring to the party. They just say what they think.”
