In November of last year, Meghan Markle shared the heartbreaking news that she had suffered a miscarriage in July. In an opinion piece, titled 'The Losses We Share,' published by the New York Times, Meghan wrote that she "felt a sharp cramp" while changing her son Archie's diaper. "I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right," Meghan recalled in the emotional piece. "I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second."
Three months after her essay was published, Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry, were able to share happier news with the world. Following their devastating loss, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are once again expecting a new baby. "We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother," a spokesperson for the couple told People. "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child."
A source close to the couple told the outlet that Meghan and Harry were "hopeful that they would get pregnant again" after Meghan's pregnancy loss. They were "overjoyed that it happened so quickly," as well.
Understandably, though, Harry and Meghan "were both nervous" when they discovered they were once again expecting. After finding out Meghan was pregnant again, the insider says it "took them a while before they could relax and fully enjoy this pregnancy."
Harry and Meghan shared a beautiful black and photo showcasing Meghan's growing baby bumpy alongside their announcement earlier this week, however, they did not share many other details. According to another source, their new baby will be here in no time. The insider told Us Weekly "the baby "is due at the end of spring."
“Harry and Meghan have always wanted a couple of kids —a little brother or sister for Archie, and they’re excitedly planning for the arrival of their bundle of joy. It’s a dream come true," the source added.
