In his first official interview since the birth of his son George on July 22, Prince William talked with CNN about life at home with the new baby, who he says is “a little fighter” who doesn’t love to sleep. William added that his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is doing “a fantastic job” as a new mom, and he admitted that he was nervous about putting baby George in the car for that first ride home from the hospital. More from CNN:
Fathers around the world watched in disbelief as William, surrounded by hundreds of press photographers, deftly secured his son’s car seat in the back of his vehicle on the first try—but the prince admitted there was more than luck involved in the maneuver.
“Believe, me it wasn’t my first time,” William said, “and I know there’s been some speculation about that. I had to practice, I really did—I was terrified it was going to fall off or the door wasn’t going to close properly.”
While the pictures of William climbing behind the wheel and driving his young family home from the hospital may have reinforced perceptions that he’ll bring a more modern approach to Britain’s monarchy, the future king told CNN it was simply more about doing things his way.
He said: “I am as independent as I want to be, same as Catherine and Harry. We’ve all grown up differently to other generations and I very much feel if that I can do it myself, I want to do it myself.”
“There are times where you can’t do it yourself and the system takes over, or it’s appropriate to do things differently. But I think driving your son and your wife away from hospital was really important to me.”
While the future king may have prevailed on the issue of driving his family home, he says he was less successful at avoiding that hallowed tradition of new parenthood: changing the first diaper.
“I did the first nappy, it’s a badge of honor,” he joked. “I wasn’t allowed to get away with that. I had every midwife staring at me, saying: ‘You do it, you do it.’”

Soleil Moon Frye, the actress who gained fame in the 1980s as the child star of “Punky Brewster,” announced that she and her husband, film and television producer Jason Goldberg, are expecting their third child. Frye made the announcement on The Today Show, as PEOPLE.com reports:
“I have a very big announcement: We have a newest addition to the family here,” Frye said on the show. “Two girls and now a new baby to join the family. Poet and Jagger are so excited. I’m so excited I can actually touch my belly now, I’ve been hiding it for so long.”
Another child has been on Goldberg, a film and television producer, and Frye’s mind since last fall.
“I want a third! I just feel like if I have a third it will be another girl and I would be so into it,” she told The Bump in October. “And then maybe the fourth would be a boy. Fingers crossed within the next year!”
Frye is set to host a show called “Home Made Simple” on the OWN Network this fall.
