Princess Eugenie has shared the name of her baby boy.
In an announcement on Saturday morning, the 30-year-old daughter of Prince Andrew said: "We wanted to introduce you to August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.
"Thank you for so many wonderful messages. Our hearts are full of love for this little human, words can't express. We are excited to be able to share these photos with you."
She added: "[Photos] by our wonderful midwife. Thank you to the wonderful essential workers including our midwife who came to discharge our boy."
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."
Eugenie, who is the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York, announced her pregnancy back in September.
The couple tied the knot back two years prior, in October 2018, surrounded by celebrities and royalty at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.
The new parents first met when Jack was working as a barman, crossing paths at the ski resort of Verbier in Switzerland, back in 2010. Eugenie was 20, while Jack was 24.
After dating for a year, Jack joined Eugenie for their first official public appearance together at the Royal Ascot in 2011.
Jack 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 boyfriend 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."
Congrats to the happy couple!
