Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Give the World a Precious First Look at Baby Sussex

The couple plans to bring the baby to meet the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh this afternoon.

In the days leading up to the big reveal, oddsmakers in the UK were taking bets on what names the couple might choose … with Spencer a strong favorite. Spencer was the maiden name of Princess Diana, Harry’s mother.

Other names heavily favored included the more traditional Alexander, James, Arthur and Philip.

Oddsmakers were uncertain if the couple would go with a traditional name … or buck tradition and go their own way as they have in other ways. For now … everyone waits. As we reported … Meghan gave birth at 5:26 AM Monday, London time to a healthy baby boy weighing in at 7 lbs. 3 oz.

Harry announced the happy news, telling the media he was thrilled and in awe over what women go through during childbirth. He said they were still thinking about the name even though they had some extra time, and also … he couldn’t stop smiling.
