Meghan Markle ‘can’t wait to be a mother’ close friend reveals

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been dropping hints since the day they announced their engagement that they are more than ready to start a family, but a new revelation from a close friend of Meghan’s proves just how excited the former actress is to become a mum.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have made no secret about the fact that they are keen to have a family together in the future.

The happy couple, who will tie-the-knot in a royal wedding at Windsor Castle in a couple of weeks, told the BBC back in November 2017 on the day of their engagement that they were keen to ‘start a family in the near future’. Then, just a couple of months ago during a visit to Northern Island, Meghan hinted that she very much sees children in her future with Prince Harry whilst talking to entrepreneurs in Belfast.

‘I’m sure at some point we’ll need the whole thing’ the 36-year-old said, pointing to a range of baby products.

Now one of Meghan’s friends and confidants has come forward to reveal that the American-born former actress would ‘absolutely love to have children’ and ‘can’t wait to be a mother’.

Speaking to Sky for a new documentary called Harry and Meghan: A Love Story, Meghan Markle’s friend and agent Gina Nelthorpe-Cowne described how Meghan was ‘really excited’ when she started dating Prince Harry, before going on to divulge the bride-to-be’s desire to start a family.

‘She said to me, ‘I would absolutely love to have children, and I can’t wait to be a mother’,’ Gina Nelthorpe-Cowne confessed.

Prince Harry has also been honest about his desire to have a family in the future, with the royal candidly admitting to journalist and podcast host Bryony Gordon last year that he ‘would love to have kids.’

So, perhaps the arrival of Kate and Prince William’s third child, Prince Louis, last month won’t be the only royal baby news from Kensington Palace this year? You’ll have to watch this space to find out!
