TV personality Ellen DeGeneres took to social media to playfully offer up her own congratulations with a cute and 'punny' tweet. "Congratulations Meghan, Harry and Archie. Welcome to the world Lilibet! I am more than a Lilibet excited to meet you."

This joyful news comes after the Royal couple got candid about a previous devastating loss, when Meghan Markle announced that she had experienced a miscarriage in July.

As OK! previously reported, Harry and Meghan's decision to share the extremely personal matter with the public strays away from royal norms, which emphasize keeping political and personal matters hidden behind closed doors.

"They kept their miscarriage private for months because it was very painful and not anything that they knew if they would ever want to share," a source told PEOPLE. "They both seemed shocked at how painful it was. Meghan was ready to share now because so many women go through the same thing in silence."

The Royal couple voiced their excitement and gratefulness for their new daughter 'Lili' in a statement on the Archewell website. "We remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe. Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family."
