Princess Eugenie may still be gearing up for her royal wedding, but there's already apparently something else on her mind: royal babies.

In a new interview with the BBC news program The One Show, Eugenie's mom, Sarah Ferguson, revealed that her daughter and future son-in-law are already thinking about the next addition to the royal family. According to Cosmopolitan, Fergie, who referred to herself as the MOB (aka "mother of the bride"), noted that she's excited at the prospect of becoming a grandma, and that Eugenie and her husband to be, Jack Brooksbank, are equally ready to welcome the next generation. "They are thrilled because I write children's books and I'm a child—I haven't grown up," she said, per Cosmopolitan.

"They're all about love and they want this wedding to be about that, to include everybody to really absorb the love they have for each other with everybody else," Fergie added. Like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Eugenie and Jack have invited 1,200 members of the public to join them and bear witness to their special day.

As for what, exactly, their special day will entail, here's what we know so far: The event will take place on October 12 at St. George's Chapel. The wedding was supposed to go down in September, but the couple was asked to push the date back after Meghan and Harry's engagement. Beyond that, though, the details have been kept pretty quiet.

However, according to Ferguson, Princess Eugenie "knows exactly what she wants." She elaborated, "they're very contemporary, they're very inclusive."

As for whether there are any other royal babies in our near futures, rumors have been swirling for months that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are eager to start a family of mini princes and princesses of their own—which means playtime at Buckingham Palace is (hopefully!) about to get a whole lot cuter.
