Congrats JK and Neil! I had the biggest feeling that he would be a boy! Is there any word yet on whether the magical quill at Hogwarts put his name down for the class starting in 2014?

I know that the birth of the baby is the happiest thing ever happens in a human's life. It's so wonderful to realize that this little being is a part of yourself and it's the closest person in the world for you... Congratulations to J. K. Rowling and Neil Murray!
