The newborn baby boy, who will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge, was born on July 22 at 4:24p (London time), weighing 8 lbs. and 6 oz. After the reveal of the child, proud father William informed the public, “We’re still working on a name, so we’ll have that as soon as we can. It’s the first time we’ve seen him, really, so we’re having a proper chance to catch up.” Fortunately, for those that have been obsessed with all things Royal Baby since its conception in December 2012, the news of its moniker came sooner rather than later.
Prior to the name release, celebrities began flooding the Twittersphere with their congratulatory messages for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Or just messages in general:
Congratulations to Will and Kate on the birth of their baby. A king is born.

Honestly, I am more impressed with Kate's blow-out than the #RoyalBaby which looks just like a human baby. But that hair!

I don't understand how I'm still doing phone interviews when Kate Middleton is in labor. Don't they have to go cover the crowning?!
