Gender reveals are a big moment for many families, and some parents go to great lengths to make that event a surprise for everyone involved.
Moreover, when it comes to a family as high-profile as the royal one, things can get messy quite fast with just one small accident in this regard.
It looks like something like that might be brewing on the horizon for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as Serena Williams may have just revealed that the two are expecting a girl.
This came out in an interview Williams gave to E! News, where she talked about the situation new mothers have to deal with and offered helpful tips to people in that position.
The tennis legend said: “Accept mistakes and don’t expect to be perfect. We put so much pressure on ourselves. My friend is pregnant, and she’s like, “Oh, my kid’s gonna do this,” and I just looked at her and I was like, “No, she’s not.” I’m like, “No, you’re not. Everything is not going to go as planned. You just gotta go with the flow.”
At one point, talking about the royal baby, she referred to it as a “she.”
It, of course, did not take long at all for the slip-up to become the main talk of many media outlets and random people, and it looks like the cat is out of the bag for good now.
The royal couple themselves have not confirmed nor denied the statement, preferring to keep out of that particular conversation for now.
It is not clear if they are still going to come forward and share something about the gender of their child, or if they are going to insist on waiting to make the announcement in the way they had planned it from the start.
Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter explained: “There’s a belief that there are so few surprises left in life why not save the biggest one for the moment a child is born. This is not just a royal philosophy; many parents across the UK choose not to find out.”
In any case, the recent accidental reveal has brought a lot of attention to their situation, and many people have been commenting on the slip-up actively.
Do you think revealed the gender of the royal baby? Is the tennis icon right about motherhood?
