A new royal baby has arrived, and it's a boy, reports CBS News. Meghan Markle, more formally known as the Duchess of Sussex, went into labor early Monday, and the birth was announced about 9:45am Eastern. "This little baby is absolutely to die for," says dad Prince Harry. "I'm just over the moon." Mother and child were both doing fine, with the boy weighing in at 7 pounds, 3 ounces, per the AP. This is the couple's first child, and he will be seventh in line to the throne, the BBC reports. No word yet on when his name will be announced. (Read more Duke and Duchess of Sussex stories.)
