Congratulations are in order for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank. The royal couple welcomed a healthy baby boy on Feb. 9, and they haven't been shy about sharing the news with the world. The first photo of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's baby arrived just hours after she gave birth.
According to Buckingham Palace, the infant was born in London. "Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie was safely delivered of a son today, 9th February 2021, at 8: 55 a.m. at The Portland Hospital," the palace said in a statement. "Jack Brooksbank was present."
The infant's arrival marks the ninth great-grandchild for Queen Elizabeth. The royal baby was born weighing 8 lbs., 1. oz, and Eugenie just couldn't help but share her excitement with the world. While royals tend to be remarkably private about their family lives, she took to Instagram with a photo featuring her baby boy. The black and white pic showed Eugenie and her husband holding their son's hand, and it was sweet as could be. The Princess captioned her celabratory post with three blue hearts.
