"To have a boy, and a girl, what more could you ask for?"

They also shared their daughter will complete their family after Oprah questioned whether they would have any more children. "We're done!" Harry told the host.


The pair announced they were expecting their second baby on Valentine's Day with a black and white photo of the pair in the gardens of their Californian mansion.

“We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother," they said in a joint statement. "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”

The photo was taken by longtime friend Misan Harriman who shot the photo remotely according to trusted friend and journalist Omid Scobie, who tweeted the news this morning.

The baby will be the pair's second child after welcoming Archie on the 6 May 2019, and it's not yet clear when the bub is due to arrive.

The baby will also be whats commonly referred to as a 'rainbow baby', the first baby after their tragic miscarriage last year.

The couple shared their heartbreaking news in July 2020 via an article written by the Duchess of Sussex for the New York Times, writing: “I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.”

Meghan was praised for the ‘brave’ move she took in penning the essay, with many women who have gone through the same thing claiming it makes them feel ‘less alone’.
