ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: British Prime Minister David Cameron congratulated Prince William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, on the birth of their baby boy. "It is an important moment in the life of our nation but I suppose it is above all a wonderful moment for a warm and loving couple who've got a brand new baby boy," said Cameron, who stepped out of his residence at Number 10 Downing street to make a brief statement. "[The Royal family] can know that a proud nation is celebrating with a very proud and happy couple tonight," Cameron continued. Kate gave birth on Monday to a boy, who becomes third in line to the British throne, ending weeks of feverish speculation about the royal baby. The couple's first child was born at 4:24 p.m. (11:24 a.m. E), weighing 8 lbs and 6 oz. His name will be announced at a later date but bookmakers favor George and James. The couple arrived at the hospital at around dawn on Monday, dodging the pack of world media camped outside the main entrance by using an unmarked car and entering through a side door. As the birth was announced, a loud cheer went up from the well-wishers and media gathered outside St. Mary's Hospital in west London.
