The holidays came early this year with one of the greatest gifts of all—news of a royal baby on the way! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their pregnancy Monday, and we've been brainstorming name options and royal-worthy gifts ever since. Plus, given Harry's track record with wooing children, there's no doubt that he'll be one of the goofiest, most doting parents out there—and we have the photos to prove it.
In honor of the newest addition to the royal fam (coming spring 2019), we scoured the web and compiled 23 photos of the redheaded royal chilling with children. Lucky for you, since revealing the exciting pregnancy news, the couple has conveniently bumped into plenty of tiny fans recently during their official visit to Australia. But, thankfully, there's also no shortage of snapshots documenting the royal's many child-friendly interactions, dating all the way back to his teenage years. Keep scrolling to see some of Prince Harry's best moments with youngsters from around the world that foreshadow his soon-to-be-stellar parenting skills. He won't be a regular dad—he'll be a cool royal dad.
