Whispers are going around that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first child will be a boy. Sources told US Weekly that the couple revealed their baby's gender at Meghan's NYC baby shower.
According to a source, Markle told guests at the Mark Hotel on February 20 that they were expecting a boy. This seems to be supported by the fact that Markle's former Suits co-star and good friend, Abigail Spencer, brought a gift wrapped in blue paper.
The couple has been notably more open about details about Markle's pregnancy than Prince William and Kate Middleton. In January, Markle revealed that she was due in April.
Just after the couple announced they'd be welcoming a baby, Prince Harry said that he was hoping for a girl. If the news turns out to be correct, the couple will have to try again for a little girl.
Oddsmakers have been discussing likely names for the little. They have placed top bets on Albert, Arthur, and Philip.
It would be interesting to know how Meghan, an American who grew up away from royalty, feels about having her child's name be so restricted. Is it possible that the middle name won't be quite so traditional?
Congratulations to the couple on their baby. We look forward to see photos!
