Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank welcomed their first child, a baby boy, on Feb. 9, and quickly shared their first photo of the newborn.

"On behalf of everyone at The Anti-Slavery Collective, we want to say congratulations to our co-founder, HRH @princesseugenie, on the birth of her baby!" read the post.

The Royal Family also quickly took to its own Instagram account to announce the little boy's birth. Sharing a photo of Eugenie and Jack at their 2018 wedding, the account revealed the little boy wa

"Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie was safely delivered of a son today, 9th February 2021, at 0855hrs at The Portland Hospital. Jack Brooksbank was present.
