Kensington Palace has announced that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first child together. The New York Times broke the news at around 4 a.m. this morning. 

The child will be the first for Markle and Prince Harry, and will be seventh in line to the throne. There aren't many details yet, just a bunch of excitement. 

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first baby together. 

Kensington Palace made the announcement late last night. 

CNN reports that the baby will be seventh in line for the throne. 

The couple married just five months ago at Windsor Castle in England. 

Meghan is 37, while Harry is 34. This will be the first child for both of them. 

"Hopefully we’ll start a family in the near future,” Harry told BBC News shortly after the wedding. 

People on Twitter are reacting to the big news. 

Some are already convinced Harry is going to be a splendid father. 

Some people don't even know why they care so much. 

Here's to seeing some very cute babies in the near future.
