“We all grew up with those activities, and just because this baby is going to be a royal doesn’t mean he won’t do all that fun stuff,” the insider added. (RELATED: Duchess Meghan Markle Reportedly Plans To Raise Royal Baby Gender Neutral)

“Like any father, he [Prince Harry] lights up when he speaks about his son and how proud he is of his wife,” close friend and former Invictus Games competitor JJ Chalmers shared. “I can see the buzzing smile on his face still.”

Last week, the former “Suits” actress and her husband made their debut as a family of three when they stepped out in front of cameras and talked about their new bundle of joy born May 6. He weighed in at 7 lbs. and 3 oz.

“Parenting is amazing,” Harry shared. “We are just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy and to be able to spend some precious times with him as he slowly, slowly starts to grow up.”

While Markle explained that being a mom is simply “magic” before gushing about the two men in her life.

“I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy,” the duchess said.

The royal couple will celebrate their one year anniversary on May 19th and clearly their whole world has changed since they tied the knot at a gorgeous ceremony at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in England.

Congratulations to all!
