Family Of 3! Princess Eugenie Welcomes Baby Boy With Husband Jack Brooksbank, Palace Confirms
And baby makes three! Princess Eugenie gave birth to baby No. 1 on Tuesday, February 9 — a baby boy, whom she shares with husband Jack Brooksbank.
"Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie was safely delivered of a son today, February 9 2021, at 8.55am at The Portland Hospital. Jack Brooksbank was present,” the Palace said in a statement. “The baby weighs 8lbs 1oz.”
The statement continued, "The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke of York, Sarah, Duchess of York, and Mr. and Mrs. George Brooksbank have been informed and are delighted with the news. This is Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's first child, The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York's first grandchild, and the ninth great-grandchild for The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well."
The tot is 11th in line to the throne.
The pair announced in September that they were expanding their family. "Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie and Mr. Jack Brooksbank are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in early 2021,” the palace said at the time.

The Queen’s granddaughter — who is 10th in line to the throne — and Brooksbank tied the knot in October 2019 in front of 800 guests at St. George’s Chapel.
Eugenie recently looked amazing while on video chat a few days ago. “Our co-founders, HRH @princesseugenie and Julia de Boinville, wanted to take the opportunity to remember the anniversary of the 2004 Morecambe Bay cockling disaster,” The Anti Slavery Collective captioned the video on February 5. “At least 21 Chinese undocumented immigrant laborers drowned by an incoming tide after picking cockles off the Lancashire coast.”
In the clip, Eugenie didn't show off her baby bump but sported a black lace shirt. Of course, fans couldn’t help but comment on Eugenie’s look. One person wrote, “She is glowing,” while another echoed, “Eugenie is an absolute gem!”
A third user added, “Good luck on the delivery Eugenie, you will be the most amazing mum!”
