Royal baby watch! Kate Middleton goes into labor, gives birth to a baby boy and husband Prince William says they "could not be happier": See Us Weekly's top 5 royal baby stories from Monday, July 22, in the roundup!
It's show time! Pregnant Kate Middleton has gone into labor and has checked into the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital in London, a Palace rep confirms to Us Weekly in a Monday, July 22 statement.
Giving birth should be a teensy bit less stressful for Kate Middleton inside the historic, luxurious Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital. Checking into the Paddington, London facility early Monday, July 22 with Prince William at her side, the Duchess of Cambridge is giving birth in the same location that her late mother-in-law Princess Diana delivered Princes William and Harry; Prince Charles' sister, Princess Anne, also gave birth to children Peter and Zara Phillips inside Lindo, among other British royals.
Kate Middleton has the full love and support of her mum and sis -- but that doesn't mean Carole and Pippa Middleton will be coaching the Duchess of Cambridge in the birthing suite at St. Mary's Hospital. Contrary to speculation, Kate's mother Carole, 58, and sister Pippa will not be in the delivery room in the Lido Wing as Kate welcomes her first born. "Buckingham Palace denied rumors that they were going to be in the delivery room with Kate. She very much wants just her husband to be there," NBC News reported on Monday, July 22.
Sound the trumpets: at long last, His Royal Highness is finally here! The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton gave birth to a baby boy -- her first child with husband Prince William -- at St. Mary's Hospital in London on Monday, July 22, the Palace confirmed via Twitter.

Well-wishers from all over the globe rejoiced upon hearing that Kate Middleton had given birth to a son on Monday, July 22.

"We could not be happier," the Duke of Cambridge said in a statement shortly after his little bundle of joy was born.
