Hours after Meghan Markle gave birth, Prince Harry says the arrival of his new baby boy has been the most amazing experience he could ever imagine.
The 34-year-old was grinning ear to ear Monday morning when he confirmed to members of the media that he and Meghan had welcomed their son.
“A very healthy boy,” he added. “Mother and baby are doing incredibly well.”
Prince Harry revealed he hasn’t “been at many births” and this is “definitely” his first birth and added, “how any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension.”
