Kate Middleton outranked husband Prince William in Twitter love.

Step aside, North West.

Twitter has a new baby of star-proportions to fuss about.

Kate Middleton gave birth to an 8 pound, 6 ounce baby boy at 4:24 p.m. after being in labor for 10 hours.

Twitter promptly erupted.

Kate Middleton, Buckingham Palace, #RoyalBaby, Royal Baby Watch, #itsaboy, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry topped the trending charts within the hour of the birth announcement.

Not a lot of Twitter love for the new dad, Prince William.

Here are the best celebrity reactions:

Dear William & Kate: If William is 100% royal and Princess Kate is 0% royal, will that make your son a half-blood prince? #RoyalBaby

If Kate and Will's baby is named Joffrey I will give everyone one million dollars.

You can tell the royal baby is British because he doesn't have any teeth.
