Royal Baby Boy Arrives, Twitter Reacts With Joy, Humor

by at .  Updated at . Comments

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:
