Eugenie, 30, gave birth to her and Jack Brooksbank’s baby boy last week. The new mother is “doing really well” after having a C-section due to her scoliosis surgery when she was younger, according to a friend who has been in touch with her.
Eugenie had surgery to treat a curvature of the spine at the age of 12.
Speaking to People, the source added that the royal “sounded very content and said the baby is a complete dream”.
Jack was at Eugenie’s side when she gave birth to their first child just over a week ago.
In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: “Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie was safely delivered of a son today, February 9 2021, at 8.55am at The Portland Hospital.
“Jack Brooksbank was present.
“The baby weighs 8lbs 1oz.
“The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke of York, Sarah, Duchess of York, and Mr and Mrs George Brooksbank have been informed and are delighted with the news.
“This is Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s first child, The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York’s first grandchild, and the ninth great-grandchild for The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh.
