AceShowbiz - British royal Princess Eugenie has given birth to her first child.
The youngest daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Sarah, Duchess of York welcomed a son with her husband, Jack Brooksbank, at The Portland Hospital in London on Tuesday morning (09Feb21).
She broke the news to fans via Instagram, sharing a close-up black-and-white photo of the tot's tiny fingers, intertwined with his mother and father's, and captioned it with three blue hearts.
An official statement was also released by royal representatives, expressing the joy of the new grandparents and Eugenie's own grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
It reads, "The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke of York, Sarah, Duchess of York, and Mr and Mrs George Brooksbank have been informed and are delighted with the news."
"Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well," the statement added.
The newborn is the Queen's ninth great-grandchild.
Eugenie and Jack wed in 2018.
Princess Eugenie announced her pregnancy in September 2020 as she exclaimed back then, "Jack and I are so excited for early 2021....."
The then-pregnant royal and her husband later moved into Frogmore Cottage, who was previously occupied by her cousin Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle.
When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex renovated the cottage as they moved into the estate back in 2019, they faced harsh criticisms. The couple later paid back the taxpayer's money that was used to refurbish the home.
As they resigned as senior royals and relocated to the U.S. in early 2020, it was reported that they still intended to use the Cottage as their UK base but, several months later, they had their personal items collected from the cottage so that pregnant Eugenie could move in. "Removal vans pitched up in the dead of the night and cleared out the cottage," a source said.
Despite claims that Eugenie was "delighted" to move into the estate, she and husband moved back into their old home in Kensington Palace after just six weeks at the cottage.
