Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their second child.
“We can confirm that Archie will be a big brother,” a spokesman for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex told Page Six on Sunday. “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very happy to be expecting their second child.”
The couple’s son, Archie, will be 2 years old in May.
When Markle, 39, and Harry, 36, announced the pregnancy news, they shared an intimate black-and-white photo showing Markle cradling her baby bump. Page Six is told that the photo was taken externally by the couple’s longtime friend and photographer Misan Harriman.
The news comes a few months after Markle talked about her “Almost unbearable grief” after suffering an abortion in July.
The new arrival will be the first baby of British royal descent to be born in the United States after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex resign their positions as senior king earlier this year.
After leaving their roles, they sat down at home in a $ 14 million home in Montecito, California, where neighbors include Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres.
Rumors of Markle’s pregnancy began swirling late last year when her legal team asked for her privacy case against UK Mail Sunday newspaper is postponed for nine months for “confidential” reasons.
Markle was praised for his brutally honest essay on pregnancy loss in the New York Times last year.
She wrote, “I knew when I grabbed my firstborn baby that I was losing my second,” and described how she saw “my husband’s heart break as he tried to hold my broken pieces.”
Harry has already said he only wants two children after talks about his concerns for the environment and the “scary” effects of global warming in the edition of British Vogue, guest edited by his wife.
Markle also turns to investing – and is an angel investor in the women-owned coffee brand Clevr, which Winfrey promoted his 19 million Instagram followers.
