Did Serena Williams Just Accidentally Reveal the Gender of Meghan Markle's Baby?
Serena Williams might have had a major slip-up regarding the royal baby... let's review.
The royal baby is coming oh-so soon, and we can't wait to meet her! That's right, we said her, because now we're convinced it's a girl. OK, moderately convinced, based on what might have been a slip-up from Meghan Markle's friend Serena Williams. Here's what happened:
While dishing with E!, the tennis champ was asked how she thinks her friend, the duchess, will fare as a mama. "She'll be the best mom, for sure," she answered. Tame enough.
But earlier in the video, Williams talked about a friend who's pregnant and has super high expectations for her kid. She relayed an incident where Williams told the "friend" to relax her expectations. When the pal said her little one was going to do any number of amazing things, Williams said, "No, she's not."
Hmm, could she have just revealed the gender of the littlest member of the royal family?
Maybe that's not enough to make us shout, it's a girl! but there have been other clues. For example, Prince Harry has openly quipped about hoping that the bun in Markle's oven is a girl. Markle's stateside baby shower was also reportedly filled with pink details, including pink cherry blossoms and cotton candy.
Then, there's the constant analysis of her bump and its placement and size as a (possibly) accurate way to tell what's inside.
Plus, there's this: British tabloids claim that bookies in England have had a flood of bets placed on the baby being a girl, suggesting that someone in the know let the gender slip. Then again, this could all be one well-planned decoy... or royal-watchers' imaginations working overtime. We won't have to long to wait before we can say for sure!
