Prince William and Duchess Catherine have revealed the name of their baby just a day after showing him to the world.

“The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge,” the statement continued.

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, the new parents debuted their bundle of joy outside the Lido Wing at St. Mary’s hospital in London on Tuesday.

“Well, he’s got a good pair of lungs on him that’s for sure,” William told reporters and well-wishers outside the hospital.

“He’s a big boy,” the proud dad added. “He’s quite heavy. We’re still working on a name. We’ll have that as soon as we can.”
Catherine, or Kate as she known, said becoming a parent has been an “emotional” experience.

“It’s very emotional,” the new mom, who was wearing Jenny Packham, told the press on Tuesday. “It’s such a special time. I think any parent having [a child will] know what this feeling feels like.”

“It’s very special,” her husband added.

The Prince made a joke about his baby’s arrival, which came after many suspected Kate was due.

“I’ll remind him of his tardiness when he’s a bit older, because I know how long you’ve all been sat out here. … Hopefully and you guys can go back to normal now and we can look after him,” William said.

“He’s got her looks, thankfully,” William said.
