Meghan Markle and her presumably adorable newborn baby are still resting behind closed doors, but this priceless minute with Prince Harry might just make up for it.

Markle gave birth to a baby boy weighing 7 pounds, 3 ounces early Monday morning, the Sussex royals announced via an Instagram post. It's her first child with Harry, and just like the media has been since the couple announced Markle's pregnancy last October, it's clear the Duke of Sussex is already obsessed.

In an interview following the birth announcement, Harry praised his wife and the "amazing experience" they just shared, saying "how any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension." The duo hasn't decided on any names yet, but Harry said they'll likely be ready to share the newborn with the world "as a family" in two days.

The news came less than an hour after Buckingham palace confirmed Markle went into labor in the early hours of Monday morning. The Sussex royals recently said Markle would not make an appearance with the baby outside St. Mary's Hospital — one of the many royal traditions the couple has shunted. The baby is seventh in line for the throne, but it's uncertain if the queen will give him a royal title. Kathryn Krawczyk

Could Bill Hader have a Julia Louis-Dreyfus-style Emmys winning streak ahead of him?

Hader picked up the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series Emmy Sunday for the second year in a row for his acclaimed performance on HBO's Barry. He was widely considered the clear front-runner in the category and beat out The Kominsky Method's Michael Douglas and The Good Place's Ted Danson.

In his acceptance speech, Hader thanked co-creator Alec Berg, saying, "I don't know where I'd be without you."

Other actors who have won in this category twice in a row in recent years include Transparent's Jeffrey Tambor, The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons, and 30 Rock's Alec Baldwin. Prior to Hader's repeat win, Alex Borstein, who won the supporting actress in a comedy award for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, also won her second consecutive Emmy Sunday. Brendan Morrow

Fleabag creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge won the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series on Sunday night, and immediately cracked a few jokes onstage.

"I find writing really, really hard and really painful, and I'd like to say, honestly from the bottom of my heart, this the reason why I do it is this," she said, as she stared at her award. "So it's all made it really worth it, guys." After thanking her Fleabag colleagues, Waller-Bridge shared that it's "just really wonderful to know and reassuring that a dirty, pervy, messed-up woman can make it to the Emmys." Catherine Garcia

Alex Borstein is having a marvelous night at the Emmys, as she just scored her second straight supporting actress win.

Borstein took home the Emmy Sunday for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, previously winning the same award in 2018.

In her speech, Borstein thanked the cast and crew of Mrs. Maisel, including creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, as well as her grandmother, a Holocaust survivor.

Borstein joins the ranks of Betty White, Kate McKinnon, and Julie Bowen, who have all won this award at least two times. Brendan Morrow

Tony Shalhoub just won a primetime Emmy for the first time in more than a decade.

Shalhoub took home the Emmy Sunday for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role on Amazon's The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, beating out nominees like Barry's Henry Winkler, who won last year.

"It takes a village," Shalhoub said while thanking the crew behind Mrs. Maisel.

This is Shalhoub's first time scoring Emmy gold since he won Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for Monk in 2006. He also won the same award for Monk in 2003 and 2005, making this Shalhoub's fourth Emmy win. He was nominated for Mrs. Maisel in 2018.

It's not Shalhoub's first time receiving awards recognition for Mrs. Maisel, though; he won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series earlier this year. Brendan Morrow

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, seemed to have one foot on the impeachment trail Sunday during an appearance on CNN's State of the Union.

Schiff told host Jake Tapper that, although he's been reluctant to support impeachment measures against President Trump, the latest news out of the Oval Office might be changing his mind. Schiff said that if Trump did actually threaten to withhold military aid from Ukraine and repeatedly push Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, then there might not be any other way around it. "We may very well have crossed the Rubicon," he said.

Schiff contends that the allegations represent "the most profound violation of the presidential oath" and that no privilege can cover corruption. As to whether it's true or not, Schiff argued that the president could just release the transcript of his call with Zelensky if there was nothing unsavory about it. "Clearly, he's afraid for the public to see," Schiff told Tapper. In other words, something stinks. Tim O'Donnell

Iran's leaders already gave their two cents on the rising tensions between Tehran and the United States on Sunday. Tuns out, some folks in Washington who have had some experience dealing with Iran also had some things to say.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, appearing on CBS' Face the Nation, once again accused Iran of orchestrating the strikes against Saudi oil facilities last week, while repeating that he considers it "a state-on-state act of war." When host Margaret Brennan mentioned that Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif denies the allegations, Pompeo was not overly friendly to his counterpart, saying "it's beneath the dignity of anyone to listen to" him. But Pompeo did maintain he's looking for a diplomatic solution.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry and former Defense Secretary James Mattis shared some sentiments with Pompeo. In an appearance on ABC's This Week, Mattis said Tehran is doing what it's always done — "trying to craft a foreign policy that pushes others around." Mattis added that the U.S. needs to urge its allies to stand with Washington to prevent Tehran from destabilizing the Middle East.

Kerry, who helped foster the 2015 nuclear pact with Iran, also appeared on Face the Nation where he preached restraint when it came to dealing with Tehran and even praised President Trump for doing just that. But he did say that he thinks Iran was "one way or the other" behind the oil facilities attacks and that "our allies" who still support the 2015 agreement also "support holding Iran accountable for other issues in the region."

Antonio Brown continues to dominate NFL headlines, but the rest of the league will attempt to take back the spotlight for Sunday's slate of games. Here are four Week 3 matchups to watch.

Baltimore Ravens vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 1 p.m. E.T. on CBS — Pencil these two teams in for appointment viewing most weeks. Reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes will lead Kansas City from under center against fellow quarterback Lamar Jackson and the surging Ravens. It's probably safe to expect some lofty numbers from both of them. Indeed, Ravens defense coordinator Don Martindale said Jackson-Mahomes could become the next iteration of the Tom Brady-Peyton Manning rivalry that defined the NFL for over a decade.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. San Francisco 49ers, 4:25 p.m. E.T. on CBS — Pittsburgh has had a rough start to the season, including losing longtime quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to a season-ending elbow injury. But it will be interesting to see whether second-year quarterback Mason Rudolph can step into that role and get the team back in contention. San Francisco, meanwhile, has rolled to victory in its first two games and will look to improve to 3-0.

New Orleans Saints vs. Seattle Seahawks, 4:25 p.m. E.T. on CBS — New Orleans will also be without their longtime quarterback Drew Brees, but they have a proven veteran in Teddy Bridgewater to fill the gap. Bridgewater and the Saints' talented roster should be good enough to stay in contention, but Seattle, who remains undefeated behind stellar play from quarterback Russell Wilson, will be a tough matchup, especially on the road.

Los Angeles Rams vs. Cleveland Browns, 8:20 p.m. on NBC — The Browns laid an egg in their opener against the Tennessee Titans, despite high expectations for the long-suffering franchise. They bounced back with a win Monday over the New York Jets, who were down to their third-string quarterback by the end of the game. The dynamic Rams will be a much better barometer for determining whether the Browns are just hype. Tim O'Donnell
