It's a boy! Why the obsession with the royal birth?

It's a boy!

The highly anticipated arrival of the newest member of the royal family arrived today at 4:24 p.m. local time in London.

After nearly 14 hours of labor, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge delivered a healthy boy weighing 8 pounds, 6 ounces.

The official announcement was posted outside Buckingham Palace where Queen Elizabeth II was the first to learn the news.

According to the statement:

"Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well."

Hundreds gathered outside the gates to witness the occasion. As for names, the world will have to wait at least a few more days before Prince William and Kate leave the hospital and reveal the name of their son who is now the third in line to the throne.
