For anyone who has been making bets that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's royal baby was going to be a girl, Serena Williams may have just confirmed that you were right.
In a recent interview with E! News, the tennis pro was asked about her biggest advice to new moms, and responded that it is to "accept mistakes and don’t expect to be perfect. We put so much pressure on ourselves.” But then, as People points out, she went on to start talking about a "friend" who is pregnant, and openly refers to that "friend's" baby as a "she".
“My friend is pregnant, and she was like, ‘My kid’s gonna do this,’ [and] I just looked at her like, ‘No, she’s not. No, you’re not. She was like, ‘I need to talk to you about tips,’ because, yes, I had all of those high expectations.”
While Williams could be talking about literally anyone in her social circle, she does happen to have one very royal friend (cough, cough, Meghan Markle, cough, cough) who happens to be expecting a baby some time this month, and that baby could very well be a girl. In fact, in the same interview Williams also said she thought Meghan Markle would be "the best mom, for sure," and revealed that she “may have already sent Pampers across the pond." And Williams was in attendance at Meghan Markle's A-list baby shower earlier this year where she reportedly shared the news of the baby's sex, which means she could have some insider info. Even still, the gender reveal may be a stretch, especially because previous reports said the royal baby was a boy.
When the palace announced Meghan Markle's pregnancy last fall, they said that the would could expect a royal baby "in the spring of 2019." Which means we won't have to wait long to see if Serena Williams was right.
