Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama says the new British prince has been born "at a time of promise and opportunity" between Britain and the United States.

Obama said in a written statement that he and first lady Michelle Obama wish Prince William and his wife, Kate, "all the happiness and blessings parenthood brings."

His statement came less than two hours after the royal palace announced the birth of a baby boy who is third in line for the British throne.

Obama said the American people are pleased to join in the celebration of the young prince's birth, given the special relationship between the two nations.
