Meghan Markle did NOT tell Kate Middleton she's having a baby with Prince Harry, despite a new tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust the report.

The new cover of OK! blares, "Meghan Tells Princess Kate: I'm Having Harry's Baby!" It's touted that Markle made this "secret confession" during a "girls' night out." And the wording, "I'm having Harry's baby," was manufactured to give readers the impression that Markle is pregnant.

But she is not, and the cover story is actually a bait-and-switch. The article inside the issue is about Markle WANTING to have a child with Harry, which is significantly different from what that cover line implies. This alleged baby-making conversation supposedly took place last month, after Markle and Middleton "snuck in" to a London pub "without attracting any attention whatsoever." Right.

The magazine writes, "By the end of the evening, which the insider says stretched till 1 a.m., Meghan had confessed to Kate that she's so in love with Prince Harry, 32, she'd have his baby tomorrow if she could!" That so-called "insider" is quoted as saying, "Meghan told Kate that, as far as she's concerned, they should start trying [to conceive] as soon as they've announced their engagement. She's got baby fever!"

But this purported talk never happened. This public girls' night out didn't happen either. OK! wants readers to believe that an American gossip magazine is the only outlet in the world who found out Middleton and Markle, two women who are routinely followed, went to a London bar together and spoke in front of other people about the actress' plans to have a child with Prince Harry. That kind of thing just doesn't happen.

Not to mention, this is all coming from the same tabloid that falsely said in December the palace confirmed Middleton was pregnant and wrongly said in January Markle and Harry were engaged. It's also the same repeatedly discredited outlet that has fabricated multiple cover stories about Prince William and Middleton being crowned king and queen. The publication repeatedly tries to make it seem like it has palace sources when it's clear these tales are just made up.

This new cover story about Markle, Middleton, and a baby with Prince Harry is just the latest example. One of Gossip Cop's impeccable Kensington Palace contacts confirms exclusively to us the allegations are "untrue," and notes the notion that this U.S. tabloid, of all places, is the only one to know about this supposed public "girls' night" is "absurd." Should the couple end up having children one day, it won't be OK! breaking the news.
