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.

As the Royal Baby Watch enters its final hours with Kate Middleton in labor, onlookers across the world are wondering how they will know when the child is born.

Assuming all goes according to plan with the delivery, Queen Elizabeth II will be the first person to receive word that the royal heir has been born.

Unless she's asleep, in which case no one will find out until she awakes.

Pround papa Prince William will call his 87-year-old grandmother on an encrypted phone to let her know that Kate Middleton has given birth, reports say.

But if the birth is in the middle of the night, he will not wake her up.

Kate has been in labor since early Monday at St. Mary's Hospital in London. Experts estimate that first-time mothers are generally in labor 12-24 hours.

Is the Royal Baby finally on the verge of its joyous arrival?

After about a week away in the comfort of her family's home in the English countryside, a pregnant Kate Middleton and Prince William are back in London.

She is due to give birth in the city's St. Mary's Hospital.

The duo departed Bucklebury with police escorts around 3 p.m. local time on Friday. It's unclear if a delivery is imminent, or if they just want to be closer.

As for the whereabouts of Kate Middleton, we have no clue.

Prince William wants to be present when Kate Middleton gives birth to their little prince(ss), and who can blame him. But bailing on guys' night out?

Backing out of plans with his mates, which he did last night, is "quite unexpected," adds a source, so it seems he might have some father's intuition.

Or we're just at a loss for what to write about at this point!

The Duke and the Duchess

He may be onto something. Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, let it slip Monday that she was "hopeful" that Kate will give birth "by the end of the week."

"We are all just waiting by the telephone," she said.

Kate's own mother, Carole Middleton, is okay to wait a little longer. She reportedly expects the baby to be a Leo, meaning a due date of July 23 at the earliest.

Royal Baby Watch 2013 is in full effect as Kate Middleton's due date is upon us, but there's no imminently arriving regal heir(ess) just yet.

On the one hand, all the pomp and circumstance surrounding one 31-year-old about to give birth seems silly. On the other hand, why not celebrate it?

It's a rare celebrity gossip story that is 100 percent positive, as well as world history in the making, as Queen Elizabeth II will have a third living heir(ess).

For the first time, the rules of ascension have changed so that Prince William and Kate Middleton's first-born will inherit the throne, regardless of gender.

As for when the royal baby will arrive ... it's still anyone's guess.

As the Royal Baby Watch continues today, Prince William has apparently left Wales for London, where his wife Kate Middleton is due to give birth.

Earlier this week, Prince William was putting in extra time as a search-and-rescue pilot at RAF Valley in Anglesey before he takes paternity leave.

The standby helicopter ready to rush the 31-year-old heir to her side has now departed, however, fueling speculation that the big day may be upon us.

Local sources do not believe the newly-missing helicopter necessarily indicates that the soon-to-be mom is ready to give birth imminently, however.

The very pregnant Kate Middleton is due July 11 or July 13, depending on what you read. It matters little at this stage. Either way, that's any day now!

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."
