Naturally, hundreds of people have flocked to the post to share their love and well wishes with the happy couple. “Oh my God!! Congratulations Harry and Meghan, you’ll make amazing parents,” one user commented. “I have been waiting and praying on this!” added another.
While Meghan and Harry have only been married for five months, the 37-year old’s pregnancy is hardly a shock. After all, just one month following their nuptials, sources claimed that they were ready to start a family. “Having children is definitely a priority,” an insider revealed to Us Weekly in early June. “She and Harry want to start a family right away — and she’ll start trying as soon as she can.”
Of course, those closest to the pair have not been able to contain their excitement — especially Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland. “She’s very excited for Meghan to become a mother,” an additional insider told the publication.
