It seems Samantha Markle has had a change of heart. Meghan Markle‘s estranged half-sister has bashed the Duchess of Sussex in the media time and time again, but during a recent sit-down with The Sun, she gushed over Meghan’s pregnancy — and revealed her high hopes for the baby on the way.

“It just makes everything that happened over the last year disappear. I want Meghan to be happy and calm and have peace. Everybody needs to be positive,” she told the news outlet.

It was previously reported that Meghan’s estranged father, Thomas Marklefound out about the baby news when the rest of the world did. The two are famously not on speaking terms after he bailed on attending her wedding and walking her down the aisle at the last minute back in May.

And as she’s been in the past, Samantha is still being protective over her dad — especially now that Meghan is expecting. “If he is excluded, I won’t be happy. It is in the best interests of the baby for my dad to be included,” she added. “A baby changes everything and softens everyone. I would only hope that there would be some adjustment or some way of including him.”

During one of Thomas’ explosive tell-all interviews, he shared his fears about how things would be when Meghan and Harry were to become parents. “What’s sad is that sometime in the next year Meghan and Harry will have a baby and I’ll be a grandfather, and if we’re not speaking I won’t see my grandchild,” he shared with The Mail on Sunday. “How tragic is that, to deprive a child of its grandfather because I said a few things critical of the royal family?”

But Samantha is just hoping everyone will put their negative feelings aside and work it out for the sake of the baby. “I think we all have to safeguard against any negative or hurt feelings and just work towards a positive joyous new life in the world. At a proper time, there should be a sit-down wherein everyone can address this properly. Everything has to work itself out,” she shared. “I want to allow Meg and Harry to bring my dad into it in their own appropriate time because they very well should do. Although I can still say I love my sister, I wasn’t happy with the way my father was being treated.” We’re curious to see how this family feud makes out now that Meg is pregnant!
