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.

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:

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.

Kate Middleton is in labor, Great Britain is on edge... and Twitter may explode before the day is through.

Indeed, while British Prime Minister David Cameron says this news marks a "very exciting occasion" and that the nation is "hoping for the best," other social media messages get more to the funny point of such crazy coverage.

Royal Kate Middleton

"The Starbucks at St Mary's hospital in London has turned into a working international newsroom!" Tweeted ABC correspondent Amy Robach soon after Kate was admitted.

Adds British comedy star and writer Peter Serafinowicz: "Royal babies are tricky to deliver because of the whole silver spoon thing."
