Five months after tying the knot, Meghan Markle And Prince Harry announced publicly today that they are expecting a baby in the Spring.
Word on the street is that they made the announcement to the royal family on Friday at, gasp, Harry’s cousin’s, Princess Eugenie’s, wedding. If that’s true, that’s kinda tacky, and I guess I don’t blame Fergie, Eugenie’s mother, for arguably throwing some shade their way today. (Literally one minute after they made their formal announcement on Twitter, Fergie began making wedding-related posts with nary a mention of the pregnancy news all day. Snap.)
This reminds me a little bit of a question we got the other day from someone who just learned she was pregnant and whose husband wanted to announce it right away to his family days after his grandmother suffered a serious stroke. It begs the question: Would you announce your pregnancy when your family was focused on another family member (because of a wedding, a funeral, a milestone birthday, another baby’s birth, a health crisis or some other emergency)? HAVE you shared pregnancy news when your family was focused on someone or something else? Have you ever regretted the way or timing of announcing your pregnancy?
