AceShowbiz - Prince William might just drop hints at his second son's name, two days after the birth of the newest member of the royal family. The Duke of Cambridge gave the press an update on his new baby boy when he stepped out for a royal engagement along with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
When asked about how the royal baby is doing, 35-year-old William said, "Very well, thanks." He added that everyone "is in good form, luckily," before revealing that the baby is already sleeping well. "Sleeping is going reasonably well so far, so he's behaving himself which is good," he said.
William then appeared to drop a clue about the royal baby's name when Alexander Downer, the Australian high commissioner, told him that he liked his own first name as a choice for the new little prince. "Funny you should say that - it's a good name," he replied. "Prince Alexander does have a nice ring to it."
After that, Sir Jerry Mateparae, New Zealand's high commissioner, joked that his name should also be in consideration for the little bundle of joy. William then answered, "Jerry is a strong name, absolutely."
William and Kate Middleton are expected to announce the name of the new prince sometime on Thursday.
Kate gave birth to their third child on Monday, April 23 at 11:01 A.M. local time. He weighed at 8lbs., 7oz. Seven hours later, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge debuted their son to the world when they prepared to go home.
Kate was pictured wearing a red shift dress with a white lace collar as she held the newborn, who was clad in a white gown and matching cap. Meanwhile, William wore a shirt, dark pants and blue suit jacket for their first public appearance together.
