August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, born Feb. 9, has made his public debut; Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank showed off their new bundle of joy in a carousel of Instagram photos over the weekend, and we learned all about his name.
"He is named after his great grandfather and both of his great x5 grandfathers," Eugenie wrote in an Instagram Story on Saturday. According to People, August and Philip come from Eugenie's side: Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert, was called Franz Albert August Karl Emanuel (Eugenie's own name comes from Queen Victoria's granddaughter, Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg), and Philip, of course, comes from her grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh.
Hawke, meanwhile, comes from Jack's ancestry: His 5x grandfather was called Rev. Edward Hawke Brooksbank.
While royal experts and media personalities are smitten with the name choice, us peasants are harping on a different part of the baby's introduction. In the photos shared (taken by the couple's midwife, which is a lovely detail), Mom and Dad look very much like...a mom and dad. Eugenie is clearly still carrying her (VERY NORMAL) postpartum baby weight, and Jack, ever the cutie, does look a little...parched. For sleep.
But their relatable status as new parents wasn't criticized by those in the photos' replies; instead, it was celebrated.
The comments section of the photo announcement was riddled with well-wishes and thanks, even, for such a high-profile couple choosing to be as real as possible with their audience.
TODAY pored through some of the supportive comments, finding words of encouragement like, "(I) love that she looks so real and not glammed -- like most mums in the early haze of having a newborn," and, "Thank you for sharing a true postpartum picture."
"You look beautiful! Giving birth is a true milestone," another wrote.
Jack got some love, too: "Bless them. They look knackered just like every brand new parent."
Little August is 11th in line for the British throne (for now, at least -- Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's second child will bump him back a spot), and will not hold a title unless the Queen grants him one later on.
