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.

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."

Kate Middleton is in labor!

Yes, the Royal Baby may arrive at any minute, folks, as Prince William's better half checked into the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's hospital in London around 6 a.m. Monday, according to an official Palace rep.

Said this rep in a statement:

"Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted this morning to St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London in the early stages of labour. The Duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge."

As Royal Baby Watch 2013 drags on into yet another week, palace insiders say that Kate Middleton's due date may have passed 2-3 days ago.

Kensington Palace has been "operating under the assumption that the Duchess of Cambridge is two to three days late at this point," reports say.

The revelation comes amid conflicting reports surrounding Kate's due date, and whether she is indeed late (perhaps by a week or even longer).

Initial reports claimed that the royal baby was expected to arrive on July 11 or 13, a time frame that - as we know - came and went with no fanfare.

But the U.K.'s The Telegraph says Kate Middleton was really due Friday, July 19, and that they were asked to be on standby as early as a month before.

And being on standby means staying in top shape.

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.

A Royal Couple

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.

Queen Elizabeth II can't wait to be a great-grandmother and meet her youngest heir(ess) ... if only the royal baby would show up one of these days.

Asked by one of her adoring subjects yesterday if she's hoping Kate Middleton gives birth to a boy or girl, Her Royal Highness said "I don't think I mind."

“I would very much like it to arrive,” she joked, visiting a group of children.

“I’m going on holiday soon!” the feisty 87-year-old added.

The Duchess of Cambridge is due any day now, just as HRH is set to take her annual summer vacation at her Balmoral estate in Scotland.

We're all on pins and needles waiting for Kate Middleton to give birth ... but if Queen Elizabeth II can't motivate that royal baby, clearly it's got its own timetable.

What do you think it will be?

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 '13 is in full swing, but with Kate Middleton's due date having come and gone, we were starting to wonder if it was even the real due date.

Well, it looks like earlier reports of July 11-13 may have been erroneous.

Kate’s mom, Carole Middleton, has reportedly told friends that the baby will be a Leo, the fifth sign of the astrological zodiac ... which begins next week.

According to NBC, the grandmother-to-be allegedly told friends that the royal baby will be a Leo, meaning Kate would not give birth until at least July 23.

News of a later due date would make sense, given that the palace never officially announced the day the royal heir(ess) is scheduled to be born.
