Prince George and Princess Charlotte are about to get a little brother or sister, and dad Prince William has now opened up about the news for the first time.

People reports the British royal was speaking at a conference about policing and mental health in Oxford, England, when he quickly addressed the news. Zoe Patrick, the chair of Oxfordshire Charity Council, congratulated him, and he replied, "Thank you, it's very good news."

William also opened up about what it's been like in his house, and said he's happy to "start celebrating this week" because "it was a bit anxious to start with," likely referencing Kate's struggle with hyperemesis gravidarum, an acute form of morning sickness that can cause dehydration. But no matter what, two kids and one on the way makes the household pretty hectic. "There's not much sleep at the moment," Prince William said.

Meanwhile, brother Prince Harry has cheered the news of having a new niece or nephew. "[It's] fantastic, great! Very, very happy for them," he told reporters Monday morning. "I haven't seen [Kate] for a while but I think she's okay."
