Celebrities worldwide have been showing their excitement and offering their parenting advice. The latest to offer advice is actor and father, Johnny Depp.

Depp has two children with his ex-partner Vanessa Paradis and is a very family-oriented man. The star offered his advice to Britain's Prince William, saying that fatherhood is the "greatest ride ever."

Depp believes that Prince William will enjoy having a family as much as he does.

"I would say the same thing to any pop, you know," he told the UK TV show Daybreak, after being asked to give Prince William advice on fatherhood.

"The best thing — the only thing you can do —first of all it's the greatest thing you will ever experience, without question. It's the greatest ride ever. The best thing you can do is just love them and be there."

Bruce Willis has also offered his advice to the royals and he seems to know a thing or two about parenting, having raised three daughters with ex-wife Demi Moore. Willis became a father for the fourth time, last year, with his wife Emma Heming.

Willis' advice was, "Stay home for the first year, don't go anywhere, just be there," he smiled. "Play with that baby every day. They will be very good at it, they seem like really cool people."

William and Catherine — whose son was born at St Mary’s Hospital in London on Monday — already seem thrilled with parenthood, having released a statement that read that they "could not be happier."

Even The Muppets have had their say about the royal baby’s birth — adding a little humor to the situation — Miss Piggy admitted the announcement has left her wanting a child of her own.

"Kermit, it's so exciting, Kate is a mommy and Prince William is a daddy and there is a new royal baby boy... it kind of makes me want to have a royal child of my own, what about you, Kermit?" she asked her long-term partner during a TV interview. "Can't you just hear the pitter-patter of tiny tadpole feet?"

Kermit responded, "Tadpoles don’t have feet…. Congratulations William and Catherine."

We agree with Kermit the Frog's sentiments, congratulations to William and Catherine.
