Hello and good freakin' morning! If you're not feeling chipper at the moment, wait until you hear this super exciting royal baby news: Baby Archie, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's cute new(ish)born bébé, is confirmed to be a redhead—just like his daddy! How adorable is that!

According to a People source, Baby Sussex is the cutest lil thing. Not only is he a ball of sunshine, but the source says it appears he's beginning to develop the Duke of Sussex's signature orange/red/auburn-y hair color. “He’s a happy baby,” the source said. “He has lovely, puffy little legs and tufts of reddish hair. He’s really adorable.” Reddish! Hair!!! Thank God I have my hairstylist on speed dial, because the second that baby's head of hair really starts coming in, I'm telling Olga to give me the hottest shade of Archie Orange™.

Even though this source has the royal tea on Archie's hair color, they still don't really know whether he looks more like mom or dad. During their first family outing when Baby Archie was first presented to the world, Meghan admitted that she and Harry don't really who Archie looks the most like. “We’re still trying to figure that out,” Meghan admitted.

Harry also put in his two cents, saying that Archie's looks at the moment are subject to change. Which, fair. Be honest: Do you look exactly like your baby pictures? “Everyone says babies change so much over two weeks. We’re basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really,” Harry said. “His looks are changing every single day, so who knows.”

The whole thing is mostly speculation at this point, but I'm imagining Baby Archie looking lil something like this:

But you know, with an equal dash of Meghan in there. We shall see!
