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.

Kate Middleton is nervous to give birth. But she's feeling great at least!

The Duchess, whose official due date is July 11, is "full of energy and really rather used to the bump," according to sources close to the royal family.

That said, the mother of England's future King or Queen is anxious.

"Naturally she is a little nervous about the big day, what new mum wouldn't be?" points out the source ... although Kate is more closely watched than most.

Indeed, last week, media have already set up camp outside St. Mary's Hospital in London, where Kate Middleton plans to give birth inside the Lindo Wing.

Kate Middleton is due to give birth on July 11, but will she go into labor early?

Obviously, we have no way of knowing that, but there's a plan in place if so.

If the baby shows signs of coming earlier than expected, she will be flown by helicopter from Anglesey, Wales, to London's St. Mary's Hospital.

Once checked in, she hopes to give birth naturally. However, should she run into delivery complications, an insider says "she will have a C-section."

The baby will be announced via a bulletin behind the gates of Buckingham Palace reading "Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a child."

According to a palace aide, "There will be gun salutes, flag flying and bells. It's very exciting."

For Kate Middleton, it's the final countdown. Ba-da-DA-da!

Due on July 11, the Duchess of Cambridge is "really enjoying her final weeks of pregnancy," as she hunkers down and anxiously awaits the big moment.

She's still marveling at the wonder of it all, says a source.

"Kate finds pregnancy fascinating," an insider claims. "She still says, 'I simply can't believe it' when you talk to her about a baby being inside her.'"

The father-to-be is just as transfixed, the source adds.

Kate Middleton is due to give birth to the royal heir(ess) in just a few weeks ... which makes this celebrity gossip tabloid cover nothing short of amazing.

Kate Middleton Delivery

Promising ALL THE DETAILS of the royal birth, Life & Style omits just one:

  1. Kate Middleton hasn't actually delivered the royal baby yet.

Despite this minor discrepancy, her family and security team have "rushed to the hospital," while Prince William has been "torn" from his wife's side.

Life & Style has taken up writing some historical fiction, apparently.

Prince William was the best man at the wedding of his friend Thomas van Straubenzee over the weekend, but his wife Kate Middleton was a no-show.

The reason was obvious: Kate is due in a matter of weeks and did not want to risk going into labor early (a la Kim Kardashian) at such an occasion.

Prince Harry, as an usher, was there along with his girlfriend Cressida Bonas and Kate's sister Pippa Middleton, so Kate not coming was notable.

Because the nuptials took place at Alnwick Castle, a 300-mile drive from where Kate and William live, she decided to take it easy. Probably smart.

Will Kate Middleton have a c-section or a natural birth?

Will she welcome a boy or a girl? With what color hair?

When will he/she arrive? And what will the name be?

For royal watchers - and gamblers - worldwide, there's a lot riding on these questions, as sports books say they've seen a surge in action since December.

"The second we found out that she was with child," in December 2012, said Rupert Adams of William Hill, one of the largest bookmakers in the U.K.

Reports that the pregnant Kate Middleton will give birth to the royal baby this summer via Caesarian section surfaced this week, but may be exaggerated.

The Duchess is open to having a C-section but is leaving all decisions about the logistics of her childbirth to the royal physicians overseeing her pregnancy.

So basically she's not diametrically opposed to having the procedure, but isn't booking the date either. In fact, she's willing to leave that call to others.

Royal correspondents say Kate Middleton won't even have - or want - the final say in whether she goes the natural childbirth or the painkiller route.

"She's taken advice from the royal doctors already," says a source.

Tradition will be changed in that Prince William will be in the delivery room to witness the birth of their child, and an announcement will come via Twitter.

What do you think they're having?
