Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, has only been married for a few months, but everyone’s waiting for a pregnancy announcement from him and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex. While that may not come for quite awhile, the Internet is feeding themselves full of heartwarming “uncle” moments from Prince Harry that prove he’ll be an awesome dad.

2. When he joked about becoming a babysitter
After Prince George was born, he joked (or did he?) about becoming a babysitter. He told BBC at the time, “I only hope my brother knows how expensive my babysitting charges are.”

According to the Mirror, after Princess Charlotte was born, Prince Harry shared his best royal advice for his nephew and newest niece. He said in a statement, “As an uncle, you know, I would say enjoy the role, because at first it’s just pressure, pressure, pressure … Just enjoy it and make the most of it. If you’re going to be doing it and you’re having an effect on so many people then, if you smile, they’re smiling — and what’s the point of doing such a unique job without enjoying it?”
