Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Reveal Gender of Baby No. 2 During Candid Oprah Interview

It’s been three weeks since Meghan Markle announced that she and Prince Harry are expecting their second child together. And now, we finally know the gender of baby number two.

Tonight, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a tell-all conversation, titled Oprah with Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special. During the interview, Prince Harry and Markle revealed that she’s expecting a girl.

“To have a boy and then a girl, what more could you ask for?” Prince Harry said. When asked about the possibility of more children, Markle confirmed, “Two is it.”

In addition to their unborn baby girl, Markle and Prince Harry are also parents to a 1-year-old son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The news comes less than one month after Markle and Prince Harry confirmed that they’re expecting their second child. The royal couple announced the big news on Valentine's Day through a statement obtained by People magazine.

A spokesperson told the outlet, “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.”

The date of the baby announcement paid tribute to Prince Harry’s late mom, Princess Diana. When the Princess of Wales was pregnant with Harry in 1984, the Palace shared the news on February 13. By Valentine’s Day, the world was buzzing with the exciting news of another royal baby.

Thank you, Oprah, for making this interview double as a gender reveal.
