UPDATE, with Riverdale tweet Good thing Archie Bunker isn’t around anymore. After little Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor made his name the #1 trending topic worldwide, another Archie just had to weigh in, welcoming the little guy to the club.

“I’m baby,” tweeted the official Archie Comics account. No explanation or photo needed.

This morning, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex introduced the Queen’s eighth great-grandchild to Her Majesty and the world. Though the baby, born Monday, could have been titled Earl of Dumbarton, according to the BBC, parents Prince Harry and wife Meghan opted to skip the formality and go with the simple Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

Said Meghan, “He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm. He’s been the dream.” Responded Harry, “I don’t know who he gets that from.”

The CW’s Riverdale – the live-action take on Archie and gang – also tweeted a message to the newcomer. At first glace, the GIF of star K.J. Apa in boxing mode might seem like just a plug for tonight’s episode, and the message (“Proud to be Archie”) doesn’t give much away. But check out those emojis.

Here are some other social media welcome-to-the-worlds…:
