Since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed Baby Sussex in private, fans are sharing their well wishes online. Tweets about Meghan Markle's royal baby show how happy people are for the new parents, and they already can't wait for more baby updates. On Monday, May 6, Markle gave birth to a baby boy, as confirmed on the Sussex Royal Instagram account.
Earlier on Monday, Buckingham Palace confirmed Markle was in labor, and that Prince Harry was by her side. And it wasn't long after that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced the arrival of the baby on Instagram, confirming that both mother and baby were doing well. The statement read:
"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."
