Prince William and Kate Middleton are the proud parents of a baby boy, and the couple are full of gratitude for the people that helped bring him into this world!
- "We would like to thank the staff at the Lindo Wing and the whole hospital for the tremendous care the three of us have received. We know it has been a very busy period for the hospital and we would like to thank everyone - staff, patients and visitors - for their understanding during this time," the pair said in a joint statement.
The Prince's uncle and Princess Diana's brother couldn't be more elated with the baby news, either!
- "We're all so pleased. It's wonderful news," Charles Spencer said in his own statement.
The baby's grandfather Prince Charles is busy fulfilling royal duties in Yorkshire with wife Camilla, but he still found time to speak out on the newest heir to the throne!
- "I'm thrilled and very excited," he said after the birth.
Congrats are rolling in from the U.S. President, as well!
