Princess Eugenie has given birth to her first child, a baby son, with husband Jack Brooksbank.

The royal baby was born on February 9 at The Portland Hospital in central London weighing 8lbs 1oz (3.6 kilograms), a statement from Buckingham Palace confirmed. A name has not yet been announced.

The palace said the Queen, Prince Philip, Eugenie’s parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, and Jack’s Parents were “delighted” by the happy news.

“This is Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s first child, The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York’s first grandchild, and the ninth great-grandchild for The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh,” the statement read. “Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well.”

Following the announcement, Princess Eugenie also took to her personal Instagram account to share a first photo of her new son. The simple black and white photo shows the new parents holding the newborn’s hand.

The new parents are currently residing at Frogmore Cottage, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s home on the Queen’s Windsor estate. Eugenie and Jack, who married in October 2018 at a regal ceremony watched by millions across the world, were living in three-bedroom Ivy Cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace.

Princess Eugenie announced her baby news on her personal Instagram account last year. Taking to Instagram at the time, the princess posted a picture of small bear booties with the caption, “Jack and I are so excited for early 2021 …”
