Ever since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced that they were expecting their first child, fans have been eager to know whether the future member of the royal family is a boy or a girl. And it now seems like Serena Williams might have accidentally just revealed the baby’s sex. In a recent interview with E! News, the tennis star was asked what advice she would give to an expecting mom, and her response has fans on high alert.
“My friend is pregnant, and she was like, ‘My kid’s gonna do this,’ (and) I just looked at her like, ‘No, she’s not. No, you’re not. She was like, ‘I need to talk to you about tips,’ because, yes, I had all of those high expectations,” she said.
Did you catch that “she’s not”? Watch the interview below:
Williams also said she thinks Markle is going to make a good mother “for sure,” and that if she could offer any new moms advice, it’s to “accept mistakes and don’t expect to be perfect. We put so much pressure on ourselves.” Hear, hear.
A word of warning: We can’t jump to immediate conclusions because she didn’t confirm her pregnant friend was Markle—but Markle does happen to be a very prominent member of her social circle. The tennis champ herself is, of course, mom to 1-year-old daughter Olympia Ohanian—whom she welcomed with husband Alexis Ohanian in September 2017— so Williams could also have said “she” out of habit.
It’s also worth keeping in mind that the Duke and Duchess have not publicly announced the sex of their first child, per royal tradition. Markle also told a fan in January that she and her husband wanted to keep the baby’s sex a surprise until she gives birth—so Markle might not know herself either.
Fans would probably love the idea of a new royal princess in the mix—but boy or girl, a new royal baby is always exciting for royal-watchers, who are undoubtedly refreshing Harry and Meghan’s new official Instagram for updates.
