Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first baby on 6th May, 2019.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced in October 2018 they were pregnant with their first baby, and ever since, fans have been waiting at the edge of their seats to find out if the Duchess of Sussex has given birth.
Today, 6th May, 2019, it was confirmed that the Duchess of Sussex had given birth to a baby BOY!
Royal baby gender odds
The most recent odds for the royal baby were 5/4 for a boy and 5/6 for a girl, meaning the bookies favoured the Royal Baby being a girl.
Rumours and reports
Following Meghan’s lavish baby shower in New York City this month, US Weekly reported the Duchess had told close friends she was having a boy.
Rumours also started to circulate when one of Meghan’s baby shower guests turned up with a present wrapped in blue tissue paper.
However, similar rumours of the baby being a girl also circulated after we were given a sneak peek into some of the pink themed snacks at the baby shower.
