It’s no surprise that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expanding their family, since that was reportedly their plan all along!
“They are absolutely over the moon,” a friend revealed about the couple. “They’ve always imagined their family of four and are so happy to finally be one.”
A source added, “They always wanted for Archie to have a sibling close in age.”
Harry, 36, even admitted he wanted a "maximum" of two kids in 2019.
On February 14, the couple announced they were expecting baby No. 2. "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 at the time.
The duo also shared a black-and-white photo of themselves — which was taken by their longtime friend Misan Harriman — outside. In the snap, the former actress and red-headed royal are laughing, as Meghan shows off her growing baby 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 wrote on Twitter.
Last year, Meghan, 39, revealed she suffered a miscarriage. "Something was not right," she wrote in a candid op-ed for The New York Times. "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."
Meghan and Harry — who moved to California last year after leaving the royal family — have dealt with some bumps in the road, but overall, they were “hopeful they would get pregnant again.”
