Now that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have welcomed baby No. 2 into their lives, the big question is: who will be the godmother of their daughter, Lilibet Diana?

Apparently, it seems like Oprah Winfrey — who recently interviewed the couple — is a frontrunner.

"If one of those godparents is Oprah — and I’m not saying that she is — then you can understand why perhaps they want to keep that to themselves," biographer Omid Scobie said. "Because even Oprah sitting down to interview them was controversial enough in itself.”

Another insider claims that the "coveted role" has been "reserved" for the journalist.

A third source added, "Meghan thinks Oprah would be the perfect godmother for her daughter. She wants her girl to be surrounded by strong female role models, and Oprah certainly fits the bill. She’s been a real support to both her and Harry since they moved to California, and Meghan knows she can rely on her, no matter what."

Other contenders include Meghan's pal Serena Williams and Katharine McPhee, who lives near Meghan and Harry in California, since the ladies "have also shown their support," an insider said. "Meghan feels so blessed to have all these strong women in her life and gets teary when she thinks about how lucky her daughter is.”

Unfortunately, it seems like the public may not find out who Meghan and Harry pick as godparents since they never revealed who Archie's are.

On June 6, the pair announced the exciting news.

"It is with great joy that Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, welcome their daughter, Lilibet 'Lili' Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, to the world," a statement from the couple said.

"Lili was born on Friday, June 4 at 11:40 a.m. in the trusted care of the doctors and staff at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, CA. She weighed 7 lbs 11 oz. Both mother and child are healthy and well, and settling in at home," the statement continued. "Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet. Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales."

"This is the second child for the couple, who also have a two-year-old son named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The Duke and Duchess thank you for your warm wishes and prayers as they enjoy this special time as a family."
