The world is currently counting down the days until Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcome their first child.
And according to her former agent, Meghan has long spoken about her desire to be a mother.
Speaking in a Sky documentary, Harry and Meghan: A Love Story, Gina Nelthorpe-Cowne said that Meghan revealed she ‘can’t wait’ to be a mother, whilst the pair were travelling in the Cayman Islands.
Gina shared, “She said to me, ‘I would absolutely love to have children, and I can’t wait to be a mother’.”
And now that the pitter-patter of tiny feet is just days away, with the Duchess thought to be welcoming hers and Harry’s baby any day now, a sweet interview taken from her pre-royal days has revealed that Meghan has a touching plan for their child.
Back in 2013, the Duchess of Sussex revealed that she bought herself a stunning yellow gold Cartier watch, as a reward for her series Suits being picked up for a third season.
She told Hello! magazine, “When I found out Suits had been picked up for our third season – which, at the time, felt like such a milestone – I totally splurged,”

Meghan continued, revealing that she actually plans to give the luxury timepiece to her future daughter, as a sweet, family momento, one day.
The 36-year-old said, “I had it engraved on the back, ‘To M.M. From M.M.’ and I plan to give it to my daughter one day.”
What a lovely gift for the couple’s future child!
It’s not yet known whether the Duke and Duchess will be having a boy or a girl, but we’re sure the watch will be a loving gift to any future family members.
During the Sky documentary, Gina also revealed that she had spoken to Meghan on the day of her first date with Prince Harry, and that she was ‘really excited’.
She said, “Meghan and I were at lunch and she was really excited that day at lunch and I said to her, you look fantastic Meghan. What’s going on in your life, you seem excited?
“And she [Meghan] said, ‘well yes, I have a date tonight’. And I said, ‘really, with who, do I know him?’ And she said yes, ‘I’m sure you’ll know him, I’m meeting Prince Harry’. In a whisper she sort of said it.
“And I said, ‘who?’ And she said, ‘Prince Harry, I’m meeting Prince Harry tonight’. And I said ‘Prince Harry?!'”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will soon be celebrating their first wedding anniversary too, on 19th May – so it’s set to be a special few weeks for the royal couple!
We can’t wait to see the new royal baby!
