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.
Not a lot of Twitter love for the new dad, Prince William.
Here are the best celebrity reactions:

If Prince William is anything like I was, he's hustling home on The Tube right now to assemble the Ikea crib & changing table.

...And some other shout-outs from the Twittersphere:
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.
