It's a boy! As of Monday morning (April 23), news has arrived that Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William welcomed their third child to the family. It is the second boy for the couple, giving Kate and William another son to go along with their one daughter. While the newest baby has yet to be named, or at least yet to be officially announced, he'll be a sibling to Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Here are more details about Kate Middleton's latest special delivery for the royal family.

Royal baby update, details

A tweet was sent out by the Kensington Palace account on Monday morning to announce the birth of Kate and William's new baby.

The announcement indicated that the birth occurred at "1101 hours" and that the newborn baby boy weighed in at 8 lbs and 7 ounces. It also gave the news that Kate Middleton and her newest child were doing well after the birth with no health complications to report.

It was first announced that Middleton was pregnant back in September of last year. Reportedly, she arrived at the hospital on Monday morning "in the early stages of labor." The delivery of the couple's third child occurred in the Lindo Wing at St.

Mary's Hospital located in London. That's also is the site where Middleton gave birth to their first two children as well. While there has not been any name announced, a report from BBC News suggests a few options. They speculate that Arthur, Albert, or Phillip may be the favorites. However, the name may be chosen by using a more traditional route which William And Kate have used with their first two children's names.

That means it will likely be a popular boy's name with some links to the family.

Fifth in line for the throne

While Prince William and Kate's new baby boy has yet to receive a name, he will be the fifth in line for the British throne. The newest boy follows a line in the royal family that includes his grandfather Prince Charles and his dad Prince William.

There's also his older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, in line for the throne. Prince George is currently four and Princess Charlotte is three. Of the two children, Prince George just began attending school, and Princess Charlotte will be doing so in the next year. Both children are rarely seen in public due to the couple's strict attempts to keep them out of the sights of the paparazzi.

The newest addition will have several weeks to make headlines until the royal family's next big event. Actress Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will get married on May 19. They'll probably steal just a bit of the new baby boy's spotlight, although if he's there, he might just grab some more attention.
