Britain is about to be overrun by Georges now that the Royal Baby name has been announced, with a surge in popularity of at least 32 percent expected.

Kate Middleton, Prince William and Baby

Royal baby names are always trend-setters, and George - just as William and Harry were three decades ago - will likely be no exception in 2014.

The UK can expect at least 1,400 more baby Georges to be born this coming year, reaching approximately 5,740 in total, versus the past year.

That would push George, the son of Kate Middleton and Prince William, from 12th to fourth place on the list of most popular boy names nationwide.

A tabloid is under scrutiny for a cover story about Kate Middleton's alleged post-baby weight loss regime ... released the same day she gave birth.

The UK version of OK! came out Monday with a photo of the new royal mom on the cover and the headline "Kate's Post-Baby Weight Loss Regime."

  • Kate Middleton Post-Baby Dress

Promoting an interview with someone described as her trainer, the story claims Kate Middleton is "super fit ... her stomach will shrink straight back."

Many people felt that the story was a little too soon (to say the least) and puts pressure on new moms to instantly lose the baby weight they put on.

The cover quickly sparked a Twitter backlash, including from TV and radio presenter Katy Hill, who tweeted a photo of her own post-baby body.

Not before providing us with some precious Royal Baby photos, fortunately.

The couple confirmed the Royal Baby's name on Twitter moments ago:

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son George Alexander Louis," Clarence House confirmed.

Reporters and fans cheered loudly as William, 31, emerged out of the large double doors of St. Mary's Hospital with a Britax car seat in hand last night.

The good-natured prince hopped around the back of a waiting black Range Rover, securing his precious cargo in the back behind the driver's seat.

Kate Middleton slid into the back next to her son.

New parents Kate Middleton and Prince William debuted the Royal Baby just moments ago, posing outside the hospital door with the young one.

One day after his birth, the as-yet-unnamed Prince of Cambridge made his global debut outside the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital in London.

Palace reps confirmed that "the Duchess is to be discharged from the hospital."

The new family are expected to briefly go back inside the facility, put the newborn in his car seat, and then head home to Kensington Palace this evening.

Royals. They're just like us.

Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed the Royal Baby Monday.

Maybe you heard that. It's a healthy baby boy, weighing 8 lbs., 6 oz.

As for the little heir's name, that has not been released at this time.

Royalty

It's unclear when it will be, or if they've even chosen one, but bookmakers say George has the best odds (yes, people have placed bets on this for months).

Other fan favorite choices so far include James, Phillip and Edward.

While it's still anyone's guess what the Royal Baby name is, you can assume it will be traditional. No Apple, Cricket or North West for these two. Call it a hunch.

Until we know for sure, it's up to you to vote, THGers! Tell us below:

What should Prince William and Kate Middleton name their son?

A healthy eight-pound, six-ounce boy born at 4:24 p.m. at St. Mary's Hospital in London today doesn't even have a name yet, but he needs no introduction.

He's the Royal Baby, people. A few hours ago, Kate Middleton gave birth to HRH Prince of Cambridge and future heir to the throne! Bow down!

The first child of Kate and Prince William is instantly third in British line of succession, behind William and his father Prince Charles (sorry Harry).

The British royals aren't the only ones celebrating Kate Middleton and Prince William's new addition. Celebrities on both sides of the Atlantic are ecstatic.

Or at least turning to Twitter for their best one-liners. See some of the reactions below:

The royal baby is here! The royal baby is here!

After many weeks of keeping the masses waiting on pins and needles and keeping us guessing as to her due date, Kate Middleton has given birth.

She and Prince William have welcomed a baby boy!

Pregnant Kate and Prince William

A royal aide just announced the joyful news moments ago with a proclamation signed by the doctors who delivered the little HRH Prince of Cambridge.

Well, not SO little. His weight (8 pounds, 6 ounces) and the time of its birth (4:24 p.m.) were confirmed, along with the gender, via press release.

An official gun salute in London's Hyde Park is expected shortly, and the bells of St. Paul’s Cathedral are already ringing in honor of the future King.

Ever since Kate went into labor early Monday morning, Royal Baby Watch 2013 reached a fever pitch outside London's St. Mary's Hospital and worldwide.

Now that it's over, it's finally cause for celebration.

Kate Middleton and Prince William did not find out the gender beforehand, setting off a national guessing game (and online betting frenzy) for months.
