LONDON -- A beaming Prince William and his wife, Kate, emerged from a London hospital Tuesday with their newborn baby boy, presenting the world with a first glimpse of the prince who is third in line to the British throne.

The royal couple, both 31, looked happy and relaxed as they waved at the crowds of journalists and onlookers gathered outside London's St. Mary's Hospital, posing for photographs and joking with reporters.

Kate, wearing a baby blue polka dot Jenny Packham dress, smiled and waved as she stepped out from the hospital doors with the future monarch in her arms.

"It's very emotional. It's such a special time. I think any parent will know what this feeling feels like," she told journalists.

Kate then gave the baby to her husband, who, cradling their child, said: "He's got her looks, thankfully. He's got a good pair of lungs on him, that's for sure."

William added: "He's a big boy. He's quite heavy," and laughed when a reporter asked him about the baby's hair.

"He's got way more than me, thank God," he said.

The couple also revealed that William has had a go at changing the infant's first diaper. "He's very good at it," Kate said.

The new parents drew whoops and excited applause from well-wishers as they revealed the newest member of Britain's royal family. William said they're still trying to decide what to name the little prince.
