Here's what we know so far.

It’s a boy! Early this morning, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed the newest royal baby to the family, according to an official Instagram announcement.

“We are pleased to announce that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their firstborn child,” the couple wrote. “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.”

The baby was born at 5:26 a.m. Monday morning, weighing seven pounds and three ounces. While the name has yet to be revealed, the Instagram post assured eager fans that more details will be shared in the next few days.

Keeping their first child’s birth private is something that Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, have been adamant about since the beginning. In a statement released in April, the palace said, “Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private. The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.”

The duo also did not disclose where the baby was born. However, both Kate and Pippa Middleton gave birth in the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, the same place where Princess Diana had her sons, too.

Meghan and Harry’s son, who will be revealed via a photoshoot at Windsor Castle in the coming days, is seventh in line to inherit the throne. He’s behind Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and Prince Harry.
