In addition to all these celebrities who tweeted their well-wishes for Kate and William as they welcomed their baby boy to the world yesterday, none other than America’s very own President and First Lady—Barack and Michelle Obama—gave the Royal couple some congrats of their own! In a statement released by the White House shortly after the baby’s birth, they said:

OK! News: Kate and William’s First Statement Since Tee Baby’s Birth

“Michelle and I are so pleased to congratulate The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the joyous occasion of the birth of their first child. We wish them all the happiness and blessings parenthood brings. The child enters the world at a time of promise and opportunity for our two nations. Given the special relationship between us, the American people are pleased to join with the people of the United Kingdom as they celebrate the birth of the young prince.”

All we’re saying is that if Kate and Will need a babysitter, we’re sure Sasha and Malia Obama would be more than thrilled to do so…
