Prince William Confirms Royal Baby is Sort of Sleeping, May Be Named Jerry

ROYAL BABY UPDATE ALERT! ROYAL BABY UPDATE ALERT!

Mere days after Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed their third child into the world, the Duke of Cambridge attended an Anzac Day service at Westminster Abbey in London.

This was an event meant to honor the military.

Wave from William

After paying his respects (along with future sister-in-law Meghan Markle), however, William spoke to reporters briefly and answered a few questions about his son's first few days.

"Sleeping's going reasonably well so far," the Royal Hunk told The Daily Mirror's Victoria Murphy, quipping as a follow-up:

"So, he's behaving himself, which is good."

LOL. We're glad to hear that a three-day old is on his best behavior.

William also said that his son and his wife are "doing very well," prior to touching on the only subject matter anyone cares about right now.

What will he and Middleton name their kid?!?

And Baby Makes Three

When Australian High Commissioner Alexander Downer asked William if he's considered the name Alexander for the little one, William responded:

"Well, it's funny you should say that. It's a good name."

Alexander actually is a leading contender for the baby's name.

From there, The Dean of Westminster joked that Sir Jerry Mateparae, New Zealand's High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, would like the baby's name to be Jerry.

How did William reply to this suggestion?

"Jerry is a strong name, absolutely."

(Yes, this was a joke. Ain't no way we'll soon be greeting Prince Jerry.)

Based on William and Kate's first two kids, we can expect to learn the child's moniker by the end of this week. Maybe even by the end of today!

Middleton, of course, gave birth to the fifth heir to the throne at St. Mary's Hospital in London on April 23. Kensington Palace announced the news on Twitter as follows:

Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs. The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz.

The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.

Upon debuting the infant to the public on Monday (below), Middleton paid tribute to her late mother-in-law by wearing a dress similar to the one donned by Princess Diana back when she debuted Prince Harry.

Pretty cool, huh?

As for how four-year old brother George and two-year old sister Charlotte are responding to the arrival of their small sibling?

"Will and Kate [are] making sure [the children] felt included in everything," an insider tells Us Weekly.

Of course they are. We'd expect nothing less from such amazing parents.

We continue to send our best wishes to Kate, William and all their kids.

We cannot wait to watch them all grow up!
