LONDON (WKYT) - Buckingham Palace officials say Prince William's wife Kate has given birth to a baby boy.
Officials said Monday the baby was born at 4:24 p.m. and weighs 8 pounds 6 ounces.
The infant will become third in line for the British throne after Prince Charles and William. Kate checked into a private wing at St. Mary's Hospital in central London early Monday morning.
"The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news," said a statement from the British Monarchy posted on Facebook.
William spent the long hours of labor at her bedside. This is the couple's first child.
The Duchess and her child are both doing well and will remain in a London hospital overnight, according to the statement.
The baby is third in the line of succession after His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales and His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge.
