Meghan Markle’s Best Friend Misha Nonoo Welcomed a Baby Boy (& Archie’s Newest Playmate)​

It’s official: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, has a brand-new, built-in BFF.

One of the duchess’s best friends, fashion designer Misha Nonoo, just gave birth to her first child, a baby boy named Leo. Nonoo and her husband, Mikey Hess, welcomed their newborn son over the weekend and confirmed that they’re adjusting A-OK to life as a family of three.

“Our lives have been forever changed,” Nonoo said, according to The Daily Mail. “We love [him] more than we ever thought possible and cannot wait to share every adventure with [him].”

Nonoo has known Markle since her Suits days and is rumored to have set her up with Prince Harry. The duchess even gave a speech at the fashion designer’s wedding back in September 2019, which took place in Rome. NBD.

Although Nonoo and Hess are based in New York, we can’t help but feel like Archie now has a pal in the same country as him. Once social distancing is a thing of the past, we wouldn’t be surprised if the family makes a cross-country trip to see the Sussex clan in Los Angeles.

Is it just us, or does “Archie and Leo” sound like a legendary comic book duo? Wishful thinking, we know.
