It's official! Kate Middleton and Prince William's unborn child has his or her own lullaby.

Who needs "Hush, Little Baby" when British composer Paul Mealor will write a song about you? Mealor, 37, composed music for the royal couple's April 29 nuptials and now he's written a ditty aptly named, "Sleep On," so their baby will have sweet, regal dreams.

"After writing music for the Royal Wedding, it seemed natural to provide the musical accompaniment for the next stage of the royal couple’s journey together," Mealor shared in a statement.

The famous composer enlisted the help of songbird Hayley Westenra, who will include the lullaby on her new album of lullabies, "Hushabye."

"Paul and I got together to work on a song called 'Sleep On' in honor of William and Kate's new arrival as it's such a joyous occasion which we can all celebrate," Westenra explained.

The album will include classics like, "Dream a Little Dream of Me" and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and will be released June 17, just before Middleton's July due date!

Blue Ivy may want to watch out -- her 2012 song with proud papa Jay-Z, "Glory feat. B.I.C.," is starting to look passé compared to the royal baby's new track.

Check out one of the track's from Westenra's album.
