Turns out, us commoners aren't the only ones enamored by the adorable new royal baby. Former first couple Barack and Michelle Obama, who have been close friends of the royals since the Obama presidency, are also thrilled about the arrival of Kate Middleton and Prince William's baby no. 3, and have already made plans to "party" with him. 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed their son – whose name is still undisclosed to the public – on Monday morning. Within seven hours, the happy parents were already out of the hospital, fresh as a pair of daisies.  

And, when the news reached the eyes and ears of the Obamas, they were quick to congratulate their old pals on their new arrival.  

Michelle posted a photo of their meeting with Prince George – Kate and William's firstborn – from back in the day, along with the caption: "Barack and I are thrilled to congratulate The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their newest arrival! We hope to meet him soon for a Kensington Palace pajama party. I’ll wear my robe!" 

Michelle's comment references the fact that during her meeting with George at Kensington in 2016, when the then 2-year-old royal was sporting a mini white robe and checkered pajamas. The Obamas were in the UK for an official trip, during which they had lunch with the Queen and Prince Philip and a meeting with then-Prime Minister, David Cameron. 

What began as a stately meeting during Barack's presidency, has evidently led the two families down the road of friendship. The former POTUS and FLOTUS even hung out with Prince William, Kate and Prince Harry during the London state visit in April 2016.

Barack went down to Toronto, Canada to attend the Invictus Games in September of 2017, to support Prince Harry. The games, of course, is an international adaptive multi-sport event, created by the prince to promote sports among wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and their associated veterans.
