Oh my goodness!!! I am so happy for them. Dang, that was a BIG baby. She didn’t look like she was carrying a 8 lb. 6 oz. little one…I would have never have guessed a weight that large. I am so glad everyone is doing well. They both must be exhausted and excited and everything all put together at once!!!
I am incredibly happy for them. I’m also happy to hear the duke and duchess waited for four hours before announcing the birth to the press so they could bond with the little one. 🙂
Though I know it won’t happen, but I do hope the press will also give the new family some peace and quiet after they leave the hospital in the next day or two.
I am so happy! I have been waiting for this news all day. So exciting!!
Hope that you don’t mind that I shared this on my Facebook and Twitter!
Of course not. 🙂
She certainly didn’t look like she was carrying a 8 lb. 6 oz. baby…wow! Bless her heart. 🙂
I agree! 🙂
