Kate Hudson Cheekily Jokes about the ‘Breaking News’ Coverage of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Newborn

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their first child, a baby boy, into this world on the 6th of April. Thousands of people around the world rejoiced over baby Sussex’s arrival, and actress Kate Hudson was no exception.

Kate, 40, posted a rather hilarious video on her Instagram account wherein she addressed the “breaking news” coverage of the Royal Baby’s arrival in a humorous way. Sipping her morning coffee, the actress said it is a “big day” because baby Sussex has arrived.

Just one week ago, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex asked that you kindly consider supporting various organisations around the world in lieu of sending gifts for the upcoming arrival of their first born. Not only did many of you lend your support, you took action. Their Royal Highnesses wanted you to know the impact of your support – the direct effect your donation, energy, and action made! YOU chose to be part of the collective good, and you have made a real difference. Whether a $5 donation, £1000 contribution, offering to volunteer, or spreading the word – you’ve played your part. And on behalf of The Duke and Duchess (and Baby Sussex), we thank you so much. YOUR IMPACT: @thelunchboxfund will now be able to provide a minimum of 100,000 additional hot nutritionally fortified meals to children in dire need across South Africa @littlevillagehq received donations from all over the world (from UAE to Hong Kong and the US), they’ve increased their monthly donors, had a surge in volunteer applications, and re-energized their hard working team of 200+ staff and volunteers @wellchild can now provide 300+ additional hours of specialist care by a Well Child Nurse for a child with serious health needs, allowing families to stay together at home vs in hospital @Baby2Baby have received over 5,000 products to disperse to children in need, including cribs, books, backpacks, diapers and have received monetary donations from around the globe - from Guadalajara to Italy.

“They could go nanny, they could go manny, because they’re super progressive,” she joked. “I'm sure it's going to be a pretty good day of people repeating they don't know what the name is yet.”

The “Almost Famous” star further quipped how she might get back to her fans with the breaking news of “not knowing what the name is.”

Returning to her Instagram story, Kate said: “Breaking news! There's speculation that it might be an American nanny.”

Meghan and Prince Harry announced the big news via their official Instagram account. Shortly after the announcement, Prince Harry made a short public statement about being a new parent. 

“We have a very healthy boy. Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. It has been the most amazing experience I could have ever possibly imagined,” the Duke of Sussex gushed.

Harry further exclaimed how a woman does what she does is “beyond comprehension” before thanking everyone for their love and support. 

Talking about the possible name for the baby, Harry said they were still thinking about the names.

What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child. In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days: @thelunchboxfund @littlevillagehq @wellchild @baby2baby The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤️

Baby Sussex is on the lighter end as compared to the babies of Prince William and Kate Middleton. While Prince Louis wins the weight game with an 8lbs 7oz, baby Sussex ranks at the bottom with 7lbs. 3oz.

The new Royal family member is seventh in line for the throne behind Prince Charles, Prince William, and his three cousins, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louise.
