Boy or girl? Ever since Meghan Markle announced that she is expecting a child with her husband, Prince Harry, she hasn’t given away a lot of details about the sex of her baby. Though the 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex recently revealed she’s now six months along in her pregnancy and is due to give birth in late April, we still really want to know if she and Harry, 34, are set to welcome a baby girl or a baby boy.
Lucky for us, Australian website My Body + Soul recently spoke to a midwife from Groovy Babies named Amanda Bude who revealed that we might be able to guess the gender of Baby Sussex by following anold wives’ tale and simply looking at the shape of Meghan’s’ growing bump.
Apparently, if a woman has gained weight around her abdomen and appears to be carrying the child “wide and low” then she’ll most likely have a girl. However, if she’s carrying the child “high and pointy” then it’ll more than likely be a boy. Simple, right Though the old wives’ tale suggests these rules can be applied to any pregnant woman’s physique, Bude did warn that she doesn’t believe there is “any research that has ever been done to credit this,” so take all this with a major grain of salt.
However, during Kate Middleton‘s three past pregnancies with Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, her baby bumps looked mostly the same so a woman’s normal shape might have more to do with the appearance of her bump than the baby’s gender. “[Everyone’s] body is as unique as a fingerprint,” Bude added.
Though we’ll likely have to wait until Meghan gives birth this spring to find out if Baby Sussex is a boy or a girl, proud dad-to-be Harry did previously reveal that he’d like his first baby to be a little girl. How sweet!
