Britain's Prince William is speaking out for the first time as a proud papa. He's his first interview since wife Catherine presented him with a bouncing baby boy last month.
"I'm just glad he wasn't screaming his head off the whole way through," Prince William said about the debut of his son George Alexander Louis.
The royal heir isn't even a month old, but his dad said he already has quite the personality.
"He's a little bit of a rascal, put it that way," Prince William said.
Prince William sounds smitten, but when it comes to his son's sleep habits he sounded like any new parent—exhausted.
"He doesn't want to go to sleep that much, which is a little bit of a
Problem," Prince William said. Reporter Max Foster asked, "So you're up a little bit at night?" The prince replied, "A little bit. Not as much as Catherine. But, um, you know, she's doing a fantastic job."
Hearts melted around the world when the first time dad carried his son out of St. Mary's Hospital, and he scored major points for making sure the car seat was secured properly.
"I had actually practiced with that seat, but only once before," he said.
The prince then surprised onlookers by chauffeuring his family home.
"I think driving your son and your wife away from hospital was really important to me," the prince said.
He even proudly said he changed the first diaper.
"A badge of honor, exactly. I wasn't allowed to get away with that. I had every midwife staring at me, ‘You do it. You do it.'"
Prince William told CNN he wants to eventually pass on to his son his passion for saving endangered animals in Africa, just as his father did with him; but that will come down the road.
"At the moment, the only legacy I want to pass on to him is to sleep more and maybe not have to change his nappy so many times," Prince William said.
