Even though Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently announced their engagement — the world is already wondering when they’ll have kids. There’s no denying that the 33-year-old royal and 36-year-old actress would make beautiful babies, so it’s only natural that there’s a ton of chatter surrounding if/when they’ll start a family. According to Us Weekly, the couple definitely wants to have children… just not yet!
“There is absolutely no pressure on the couple to have children at all,” a source explained. “Should they not want any, that would be fine. However, both are keen to start a family in the future, but don’t expect anything immediately.”

It’s totally understandable that Harry and Meghan would want to take some time to be a married couple first before they begin to expand their family. Maybe they’ll follow Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s lead and hold off for over a year. The Duke and Duchess were married in April 2011, and announced that they were expecting Prince George in December 2012.
“There is so much they want to do as a couple, and Meghan is really keen to begin working for the British Monarchy,” the source continued, explaining that Meghan “is already having private meetings with charities that Harry has helped set up so she can get to know the humanitarian landscape of the U.K.”
Whether they wait one or five years, we’ll be eager to see those Harry/Meghan genes in action — and fans feel the same way. “Can’t wait for Prince Harry and Meghan to have kids, is that weird?” one individual tweeted. Another added, “Wait so are Prince Harry and Meghan Markles future kids going to have a British accent or an American one…. this keeps me up at night.” LOL — regardless of the accent, Harry will make a great dad one day.
“I’ve longed for kids since I was very, very young,” he told ABC News in 2012. “I’m waiting to find the right person, someone who is willing to take on the job.” Luckily, he found her!
