Meghan Markle's baby boy shares the same birthday as her and Prince Harry's celebrity friend George Clooney

BABY Sussex shares the same birthday as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's celebrity friend George Clooney.

The Hollywood actor turned 58 years old today as the Duchess of Sussex gave birth to her first son.

George is close friends with the former Suits star and attended her wedding to Prince Harry last year.

He was introduced by his wife Amal who has been a friend to Meghan for years. He has since grown close to Prince Harry.

It's even rumoured George and Amal are to be named godparents to the royal couple's child.

George's cousin Ben Breslin told Mail Online: "He'd make a wonderful godfather, he'd make a wonderful just about anything – he's a good guy."

The Sussex baby was born at 5.26am this morning and weighed 7lbs 3oz.

On this day, celebs including Strictly's Dianne Buswell and Love Island's Jamie Jewitt were also born.

Proud dad Harry gushed: "The little thing is absolutely to-die-for".

Prince Harry and Meghan have often turned to George and Amal for comfort in recent months.

They went on a secret mini-moon to the famous couple's Lake Como luxury pad to escape the drama with Meghan's dad Thomas.

They spent time with the actor and his human rights barrister wife, along with their 10-month-old twins Alexander and Ella.

The luxury pad comes with 25 rooms, an outdoor theatre, a swimming pool, a gym, tennis court, a pizza room and a large garage for his motorcycles.

Their trip came after Thomas has hit out at his daughter by labelling the Royal Family "cult-like" and similar to Scientologists.

"And as every father and parent would say, your baby is absolutely amazing.

"But this little thing is absolutely to-die-for so I'm absolutely over the moon."
