This Morning viewers were amused when Eamonn Holmes referred to the royal baby as a “sprog”.
The world is eagerly awaiting news of when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first child will arrive.
During today’s edition of the daytime show, Eamonn and wife Ruth Langsford were joined by royal editor Camilla Tominey, Rupert Adams from bookmakers William Hill and Marie Louise – who is known as “the modern midwife” – to discuss Baby Sussex’s impending arrival.
Opening the segment, Eamonn said: “Baby Sussex, who is Meghan and Harry’s little sprog that we’re waiting for.”
Ruth interrupted: “Sprog?” to which Eamonn said: “Well, sprog. Little sproglet.”
Ruth quipped: “Don’t think they call it that in royal circles,” to which Eamonn added: “No they probably don’t but anyway, will it make its way into the world this weekend?”
Viewers watching from home were amused by Eamonn’s comment and shared their thoughts on Twitter.

Meanwhile, bookies William Hill has predicted that Baby Sussex will arrive on bank holiday Monday and it will be a little girl.
Buckingham Palace recently said that Harry will launch the one year countdown to the Invictus Games 2020 on an overseas trip next Wednesday, May 8, and Thursday, May 9.
The trip has left fans wondering if his wife Meghan has already given birth or whether she will give birth before Harry goes, meaning it could happen in the next few days.
