Some of our favourite celebrities have hit big personal milestones this week. On today’s gossip column we have not one but two, royal baby announcements and the details on Hollywood’s hottest couple’s divorce.
Romance is in the air, and with love comes the juiciest gossip of all. There’s a lot to get through this week, so let’s get started.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their second child
If you have been living in a digital detox or under a rock this week, you might have missed the biggest celebrity news this year. Meghan and Harry are expecting their second child, and everyone is buzzing about it.
The royal couple announced their pregnancy on Instagram last weekend, on Valentine's Day. They are delighted with the news and are excited to give 21-month-old Archie a sibling.
In November, Meghan wrote a New York Time's article detailing a miscarriage she suffered last summer. She experienced a 'sharp cramp' while changing Archie's nappy and knew she was losing her child straight away. She wrote, 'I knew as I clutched my firstborn child that I was losing my second.'
However, pregnancy wasn't the only thing Meghan announced through the Instagram post. The duchess decided to wear a Caroline Herrera dress made for her when she was pregnant with Archie two years ago. Sustainability was an absolute priority when the duchess was deciding on what to wear for the announcement. According to designer Wes Gordon, re-wearing beautiful pieces over a longer period of time is the perfect way to incorporate sustainability into your wardrobe.
