“We have a family,” he continued.

The couple confirmed the baby would be due during the summer.

A spokesperson for the couple originally announced the pregnancy of their second child on Feb. 14.

The two officially stepped away from royal duties in early 2020 and moved to the U.S. with their son Archie.

Meghan gave birth to their son in May 2019.

During the interview, Meghan also revealed some insight on what it was like when she was pregnant with Archie.

She tells Oprah she was told by family members her child (now or in the future) would not have an official title or security.

“The most important title I will ever have is ‘Mom,'” she said in the interview.

When asked about how family members reacted to the announcement of Archie, Meghan said some of it came down to race.

She added there were conversations of how dark the child’s skin would be that was relayed to her from her husband Harry.

“It was hard to see those as compartmentalize conversation.”
