Could it be? Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are having a boy?

Us Weekly is reporting via a source that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex—contrary to previous claims that they were choosing to be surprised by their baby's sex—have learned the sex of their first child and even shared it with guests at Markle's over-the-top NYC baby shower.

The source claims that Markle told guests at the Mark Hotel on February 20 that they were expecting a boy. The intel isn't highly surprising considering one of Markle's former Suits costars and good friends, Abigail Spencer, was spotted arriving at the event with a gift wrapped in blue paper.

The pair also haven't exactly been tight-lipped about their future as parents. During a royal engagement in mid-January, Markle revealed she was due in April. It was at the same event Markle told someone in the crowd that she and Harry weren't learning the sex ahead of time, which tracks with royal protocol—in-laws Kate Middleton and Prince Williams also did not learn the sex of any three of her children before they were born.

Prince Harry has also publicly stated, just after their pregnancy announcement, that he was hoping for a baby girl! But we doubt he'll be too upset by the news...

Despite maybe knowing that they are having a son, don't expect the almost parents to rush out for some blue paint. Sources have said Harry and Meghan are planning modern and neutral decor for their nursery.

"Apparently, it's going to be a monochrome palette—whites and grays, I'm told, will be the color theme for baby Sussex's nursery," Katie Nicholl reported via Vanity Fair. And everything will supposedly be eco-friendly!

As for boy names? Oddsmakers have placed top bets on Albert, Arthur, and Philip.
