Well we could not be happier that's what Prince William said tonight after his wife Kate.
Gave birth to their first child the future king of England.
Our sister network sky news reports the prince called his grandmother the queen to tell -- about the baby and then word went out to the crowds.
You've been waiting outside the hospital for days.
Thought a lot of yeah.
But I don't.
And with the traditional pomp and circumstance there it is a spokesperson for the royal family says the baby was born at 4:24 PM London time.
Weighing eight pounds six au Prince William was in the room with -- for the delivery and he's reportedly spending the night in the hospital.
We have team fox coverage Jonathan Hunt our expert on everything British.
At first though let's go to Amy Kellogg live outside the hospital in London -- -- we expect to get our first look at the new prints.

Parents you know I'm curious as to what was going on behind the scenes because just moments before the announcement they change the process in which they would do it.
We know parents this is a country that is very tradition bound and and very proud of all its traditions and we had been told.
From many weeks ago that we would hear when she went into labor and then we wouldn't know the results until a announcement was posted on the four quart of Buckingham Palace in this lovely gilded -- -- That was the drill and then it all changed at the last minute Harris of course.
The -- still was relevant but I think that Buckingham Palace was very much worried that some sort of tricky tweet -- trumped tradition and they want it to control that they control the release of the announcement so what went out from them first.
It took off before the -- men left the hospital here to post that announcements.
Again it was all unveiled in the east -- in the end that there was a change the last minute because social media really has become so powerful on the palace wanted to be the one.
Put up the news first parents completely understandable there so what other rituals can we expect to see is they welcomed -- -- Well the there will be a baptism and something called the -- Fontana traditional christening road that every member of -- every royal baby wears that is.
Probably some months down the road I think that we're waiting for the photo op which we presume will be tomorrow when we get to meet the little prince.
And see the duchess and the duke and then we don't really know whether they will be spending their time in Balmoral in Scotland with the queen or whether there will go to parks here.
