Harry & Meghan: It's a Girl!
Star|November 02, 2020
SHHHH! MEGHAN MARKLE AND HUSBAND HARRY ARE SECRETLY EXPECTING BABY NO. 2.

ON Sept. 12, Meghan Markle looked stunning as usual during an appearance on a Zoom call to mark the anniversary of her partnership with the Smart Works charity organization. Speaking from the comfort of her living room, the Duchess of Sussex was a vision in a crisp white blazer, low ponytail and dewy makeup. And fans couldn’t help but take note of something particularly luminous in her appearance. “She looks so relaxed and happy,” wrote one online commenter. Added another: “Meghan looks fantastic. She is glowing!”

Seems there may have been more than just good lighting at play. A source tells Star exclusively the 39-year-old is pregnant! “There are whispers that Meghan’s quite far gone, possibly up to six months along already,” says an insider. “And she’s having a girl.” It hasn’t been easy keeping the happy news — and her growing bump — under wraps, but the insider says the mom to Archie, 1, is determined to keep her second pregnancy a secret for as long she can. “She’s adamant about keeping her family life private,” the insider reveals. “She knows a baby announcement would create a media frenzy, and that’s why she’s staying quiet.”

Luckily for Meghan, she and Prince Harry have been happy to lie low at their new, $14.7 million home in Montecito, Calif. “They’ve hardly left the house since they moved in,” reveals the insider. On the rare occasions the couple does venture out, the Suits alum has been sure to cover up. “She wears baggy sweaters and loose-fitting shirts and jackets,” the insider says. “She doesn’t

want to give anything away!”

NEW RULES

This pregnancy has been drastically different from Meghan’s first. While carrying Archie, the newlywed felt constant pressure from the royal family. “It was stressful for her,” says the insider. “She felt like everyone was constantly on her back.” (Her swanky February 2019 baby shower in New York City allegedly ruffled feathers for being too flashy and over-the-top.) “This time around, she can do things her way,” says the insider, “and stick to her own schedule without Harry’s family butting their noses into her business.”
