This is too much.
Ever since Prince Harry showed off his parenting skills, jokily scolding a little boy for pulling his wife’s hair and then catching two-year-old Emily Henson stealing his popcorn at last year’s Invictus Games, fans have been waiting for the 33-year-old Prince to become a father himself.
And now it seems the time is here, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announcing the news that they were expecting a royal baby in Spring 2019, just a few months ago.
Since the announcement, the couple have voiced their happiness at their future arrival, with Meghan telling fans that they were excited to ‘join the parenting club’ while Prince Harry let slip a nickname for the future royal baby – ‘our little bump’.
This week, Prince Harry gave us all a look at his parenting skills as the expectant father excitedly met a newborn baby, and his reaction has unsurprisingly gone viral.
Harry was visiting The Scar Free Foundation in Birmingham this week, where he was spotted talking to his friend Paralympian JJ Chalmers who attended with his wife Kornelia and his five-week-old son James.
Prince Harry could be seen excitedly cooing over James, sweetly comforting him when the newborn started crying.
There's not long until he'll have a baby of his own!
