It was a sweet Valentine's Day for Meghan Markle, who announced she is expecting baby No. 2 with her husband, Prince Harry. Now, the big question is — when is the 39-year-old's due date

According to a royal insider, the Duchess of Sussex will be giving birth sooner than we think! “Harry and Meghan have always wanted a couple of kids — a little brother or sister for [their son], Archie, and they’re excitedly planning for the arrival of their bundle of joy,” the source said. “It’s a dream come true. … Meghan fell pregnant again toward the end of last year. The baby is due at the end of spring.”

While “some couples feel overwhelmed by having two children so close in age,” the pair are “used to having a lot on their plate and multitasking," the insider added. 

The duo — who moved to California last year — "aren't planning to hire a team of nannies," the source revealed, adding that Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland, is "always willing" to help out since she "loves being a grandma and looking after Archie."

Meanwhile, the red-headed prince, 36, is overjoyed that they are expanding their family. He "can't wait to do it all over again," the insider shared, noting that Harry believes fatherhood "is the best feeling in the world."

One day earlier, the former actress and her hubby announced that they were expanding their brood.

"We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child," a spokesperson said.

The couple posed for their close friend Misan Harriman, who shared the stunning photograph of the reveal via iPad. In the snapshot, Harry is seen smiling at his wife while she lays on the ground and cradles her growing bump in a white dress.

"Meg, I was there at your wedding to witness this love story begin, and my friend, I am honoured to capture it grow. Congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on this joyous news! #remoteshoot #shotonipad #shotbymisan," Harriman captioned the sweet photograph.

Previously, the brunette beauty revealed she had suffered a miscarriage last summer. "Something was not right," she wrote in an op-ed for The New York Times in the fall. "I felt a sharp cramp. I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm."

"I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child that I was losing my second," she wrote in the article titled "The Losses We Share."

The insider first spoke with Us Weekly.
