Kate Middleton Baby Born: Duchess Of Cambridge Gives Birth!

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on July 23, 2013


Kate Middleton’s baby is finally here! Buckingham Palace confirms that the Duchess of Cambridge has given birth to a baby boy, the first child for her and Prince William.


President Barack Obama issued a statement Monday on Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton giving birth to a baby boy, her first child with Prince William.

Obama’s statement read:

Michelle and I are so pleased to congratulate The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the joyous occasion of the birth of their first child. We wish them all the happiness and blessings parenthood brings. The child enters the world at a time of promise and opportunity for our two nations. Given the special relationship between us, the American people are pleased to join with the people of the United Kingdom as they celebrate the birth of the young prince

Earlier Monday, White House press secretary Jay Carney said the first family had been waiting with “anticipation” for news on the birth.

Middleton, who was admitted to the hospital on Monday morning, gave birth at 4:24 p.m. London time. The child weighed 8 pounds, 6 ounces, according to palace officials.


Kate was admitted to St Mary’s Hospital on the morning of July 22. She and Prince William arrived via car through a secret side entrance.

The birth comes after an anxious waiting period. Beginning in early July, press and fans camped outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital waiting for the duchess to arrive on her speculative due date… only to be left waiting for days more.

The duchess’ pregnancy was announced in December 2012, following months of royal baby rumors perpetuated by the tabloids. The day of the announcement, Kate was admitted to the hospital for treatment for hyperemesis gravidarum. The illness, an acute form of morning sickness, was thought to be serious enough to affect her entire pregnancy, preventing her from making many public appearances.

But over the course of her second and third trimesters, Kate was as active as ever. Between engagements at schoolsmuseums and Buckingham Palace garden parties, Kate also made time to shopgo to Starbucks and walk her puppy in Hyde Park.

Now she’ll have to bring a stroller along! Stay tuned for more updates on the royal baby, and click over to our royal pregnancy page for more goodies.

With the whole world watching , July 22, 2013 was the day Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Without the whole world watching, thousands of other babies were born this day, too, and they are their parents’ whole worlds.

How Long Does Labor Take, Anyway?

First labors usually take a while. According to the Mayo Clinic, first-time moms are usually in early labor for six to 12 hours and active labor for up to another eight. Plus, recent research from the National Institutes of Health, moms take significantly longer to give birth today than they did 50 years ago. Altogether, as Laura E. Riley, the medical director of labor and delivery at Massachusetts General Hospital and the author of You and Your Baby: Pregnancy, told USA Today this morning, it takes about 12 to 24 hours for first babies to show up.
