Baby Sussex and George Clooney have the same birthday: May 6

It’s a sweet coincidence that Prince William’s nephew was born on the same day as the Oscar-winning actor. George and his human rights lawyer wife are both close with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The pair attended the couple’s royal wedding last year, and George came to Meghan’s defense a number of times during her pregnancy. The actor has previously praised the Duchess telling Good Morning Britain, “She's a really kind and smart and intelligent young woman."

But we're both absolutely thrilled and so grateful to all the love and support from everybody out there. It’s been amazing, so we just wanted to share this with everybody.”

The beaming new dad added, "I haven't been at many births. This is definitely my first birth. It was amazing, absolutely incredible. As I’ve said, I'm so incredibly proud of my wife. And as every father and parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to die for so I'm absolutely over the moon."
