Like many other first-time parents in 2019, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared the joyous news of their bouncing baby boy on Instagram earlier today. The couple posted the announcement on their personal IG page @SussexRoyal, which they started just over a month ago. 

Already, there are a ton of congratulatory comments and warm wishes for the royal family and the new baby, with more to come of course.

The post’s caption reads “We are pleased to announce that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their firstborn child in the early morning on May 6th, 2019. Their Royal Highnesses’ son weighs 7lbs. 3oz. The Duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their lives. More details will be shared in the forthcoming days.”

And I don't think there's a better way to usher in the birth of a new baby than with a bunch of choice memes.

There were tons of people who just couldn't wait for the baby to finally get here.

It’s been the most amazing experience I can ever possibly imagine. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, and we’re both absolutely thrilled.”

It just seemed like everyone and their mother with a journalism degree was piling onto Meghan unfairly.

Many brought up allegations of Prince William cheating on Kate Middleton.

And highlighted that Meghan was being unjustifiably held to an impossible human standard.
