Soon-to-be-father (and apparent avid nickname proponent) Prince Harry just let slip his current moniker for his and Meghan Markle's future royal baby. And no, sadly, it doesn't offer any insight into the infant's gender or potential name, but that doesn't undermine its adorableness in the slightest.

As part of Harry and Meghan's 16-day official tour, the Duke of Sussex delivered a speech in New Zealand earlier today while visiting Abel Tasman National Park, located at the northeastern point of the country's South Island. While addressing the crowd in the rain (and joking about the not-so-pleasant weather forecast), he expressed his appreciation for the surrounding land and its local upkeep. Then came the good part (in our not so humble opinion)—the royal baby reference!

A video posted to Twitter of Prince Harry's commentary shows the 34-year-old royal excitedly pulling his family into the convo. "From myself and my wife and our little bump, we are so grateful to be here," he said, which cued plenty of laughs after the revelation of his infant's pet name. Little Bump, heir to the throne, has a lovely ring to it.

Today's park trip marks one of the final engagements on Harry and Meghan's (and Little Bump's!) overseas excursion, during which they've made stops in Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and last, New Zealand. After publicly announcing their pregnancy October 15, the duo first touched down in Sydney the following day and have since maintained a jam-packed schedule. The expectant parents will return to Britain this Thursday, where they'll hopefully catch up on some much needed R&R.

Little Bump is expected to arrive this spring. In the meantime, we're looking forward to witnessing Meghan's unparalleled style veer into maternity clothing territory.
