It's a princess!
That was the happy news on Saturday morning, after the Duchess of Cambridge -- the British royal also known as Catherine -- gave birth to her second child.
The little girl came into the world at 8:34 a.m. (3:34 a.m. ET) Saturday at London's St. Mary's Hospital, Kensington Palace announced via Twitter. She weighed 8 pounds, 3 ounces.
The Duke of Cambridge, aka Prince William, was with his wife at the hospital. And within a few hours and before word got out to the public, the rest of royal family -- including Queen Elizabeth II, the Prince of Wales and Prince Harry -- learned of the delivery.
"Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well," the palace tweeted.
