Princess Eugenie Gives Birth To First Baby With Jack Brooksbank

Princess Eugenie has officially welcomed her first child with husband Jack Brooksbank.

The Queen's granddaughter gave birth to a baby boy on Tuesday morning, confirming the news with a sweet picture of the little one's hand and two blue hearts.

Buckingham Palace confirmed that Eugenie "was safely delivered of a son today, 9th February 2021, at 0855hrs at The Portland Hospital," adding: "Jack Brooksbank was present."

The new arrival comes after the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York announced her pregnancy back on the 25th September.

The pair tied the knot back two years prior, in October 2018, surrounded by loved ones at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The new parents first met when Brooksbank was working as a barman, crossing paths at the ski resort of Verbier in Switzerland, back in 2010. Eugenie was 20, while Brooksbank was 24.

After dating for a year, Brooksbank joined Princess Eugenie for their first official public appearance together at the Royal Ascot in 2011.

Later on, in 2013, Eugenie relocated to New York City to work at online auction house Paddle8, and the couple maintained a long-distance romance.

Two years later, in 2015, the princess moved back across the pond, and she and Brooksbank began building a life together.

Brooksbank popped the question while he and Princess Eugenie were holidaying in Nicaragua in January 2018 - but the pink sapphire engagement ring was designed later.

Apparently, the Queen took a shine to Princess Eugenie's beau from the off, with the young royal telling the BBC: "Granny actually knew right at the beginning [of their engagement]. She was very happy, as was my grandfather."

And the Queen isn't Brooksbank's only fan, because Eugenie's mum Sarah Ferguson once told The One Show that her daughter's then fiancé was "a bringer of light".

"Jack really is a sort of amazing bringer of light and he brings joy," she said.

Brooksbank is currently a wine merchant and also works as the UK brand ambassador and European manager for Casimigos Tequila - the brand owned by Rande Gerber and George Clooney.

Fergie has previously joked that she was a fan of her son-in-law's career choice.

"The good news is that Jack works as the European manager for Casamigos tequila, so I'm perfect," she enthused.

"He'll just hand me the tequila and say, 'Come on, mother-in-law, down it'."
