Kate Middleton Baby Photos: First Precious Look!

by at .  Updated at .

Talk about a Royal welcome!

Just seven hours after she gave birth for the third time, Kate Middleton stepped out on Monday with her husband by her side and her brand new son in arms.

As previously detailed on The Hollywood Gossip, Middleton gave birth at 11:01 a.m. British time to a boy who weighed in at 8 pounds, 7 ounces.

We did not immediately know the royal baby's name (we NOW do!) but it was clear from the start that he's precious and adorable and so very loved.

Just hours after giving birth, Middleton appeared on the steps of the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital on Monday evening to show the bundle of joy off.

Kate donned a lovely red dress for the occasion - but, for once, eyes were not on the Duchess' fashion choice.

Instead, they were all fixated on the tiny human being held close and guarded safely.

Check out the adorable photos now!
