Gone are the days when ultrasound results are just shared with friends or families, or through text messages to reveal the gender of the baby.
Now, expecting parents think of creative gimmicks, even throwing huge parties, in order to surprise not just their guests but themselves as well if the bun in the oven will be referred to as he or she. A famous couple, however, refused to hold a big event for a gender reveal of their first child, but it is also unclear whether Meghan Markle and Prince Harry actually knew they were having a boy.
Some of us may see the whole duration of the pregnancy as frustrating since the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex remained mum about the gender of the baby all throughout, but others actually thought it was a giveaway if you just looked at all the signs right in front of us. Here are some clues that we should have given attention to:
All our attention was glued to Meghan’s New York baby shower because it was refreshing to see the former “Suits” star in the United States once again. However, with the focus on that fact alone, it became hard for us to notice small details about the event that was attended by some of her friends, including tennis player Serena Williams.
One of those invited was Abigail Spencer, also a star in the legal-drama series, who brought a gift during the party. A big but accidental blunder would show that the actress’ present had a blue wrapping paper, which really was clearly an Easter egg.
Speaking of the uber-private baby shower, the party favors reeked boy, boy, and boy all the way. Rachelle Hruska MacPherson-founded Lingua Franca, known for sustainable sourcing, which was the brand behind the navy cashmere sweaters with an orange stitching that read “baby, baby, baby” given to the guests. The clothing brand sent the items on The Mark Hotel on the special day, which had left fans suspicious if Meghan and Prince Harry were having a boy.
Choice of Outfit
Eagle-eyed fans have also noted how Meghan seemingly favored the color blue for her outfits when she was pregnant. In a royal tour to Morocco, the 37-year-old wowed in a Carolina Herrera-blue dress and opted to pull her hair back in a low bun, a style she had perfected a long time ago.
In October last year, the Duchess went to Fiji where she stunned in a blue Safiyaa Ginkgo cape dress, which accentuated her baby bump. Was she somehow inclined to wearing the color or has she simply grown an attachment to it? Either way, we could have easily predicted the gender of the baby had we paid attention to her wardrobe.
Some people guess the gender of the baby just by looking at the bump. It is said that when you are having a boy, the bump the expectant is pointy and high, while for a girl, wide and low. Because of the old saying, fans were convinced that the Duchess will deliver a boy.
