The Duke of Cambridge joked about his new son's powerful lungs and revealed he had changed his first nappy as he introduced the future king to the world.
Here are the comments made by the royal couple as they showed off their son outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in London:
William said: "Well, he's got a good pair of lungs on him, that's for sure.
"He's a big boy, he's quite heavy.
"We're still working on a name so we will have that as soon as we can."
He went on: "It's the first time we've seen him, really, so we're having a proper chance to catch up."
Asked how he felt, he added: "Very emotional."
The Duchess said: "It's very emotional and such a special time and I think any parent will probably know what this feeling feels like."
William added: "It's very special.
"I'll remind him of his tardiness when he's a bit older because I know how long you've all been sat out here.
"Hopefully the hospital and you guys can all go back to normal now and we're going to look after him... "
The Duke joked: "He's got her looks, thankfully."
But Kate replied: "No, no, no, I'm not sure about that."
A member of the press then asked "Have you called him George?", and William replied: "Wait and see, Peter, wait and see."
Asked about nappy changing, William replied: "We've done that already" before Kate revealed: "He's done the first nappy already."
When asked how he had got on, the Duke said "Good" and Kate added: "Very, very good."
Asked about the baby's hair, William said: "He's got way more than me, thank God.
"Thanks a lot, thank you."
