Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge leave after a meeting with French President Francois Hollande at the Elysee Palace during day one of their visit on March 17, 2017 in Paris, France.

Sarah Silverman has some interesting name ideas for the baby boy.

After hours of anticipation, Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed a baby boy at 11 a.m. at Saint Mary’s Hospital in London, and celebrities are just as pumped as we are about the newest addition to the royal family.

As speculation continues as to the name of the baby boy, a whole smorgasbord of celebrity A-listers have hilariously reacted to the joyous news, including Elizabeth Banks, Christine Teigen, Loni Love, Sarah Silverman and J.K. Rowling. The responses vary between pitching a name for the tot, joking about his status as being fifth in line for the throne and pure expressions of well-wishes.

Meanwhile, a tweet from Kensington Palace confirmed the whole family is reported to be “doing well.” You can see the best celebrity reactions below.
