Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are not "having a baby already," despite a baseless and misleading tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can debunk this false report. It's just a bait-and-switch designed to trick readers into believing the future royal is pregnant.
"Family Confirm: Meghan & Harry - A Baby On The Way!" reads the headline of New Idea's latest cover story. The accompanying article consists of an interview with Erin Specht, who used to be engaged to Markle's half-brother, Tom. The untrustworthy magazine claims to have received "bombshell pregnancy news" from Specht, but that's not the case. Instead, Specht merely theorizes that Prince Harry and his future wife might try to conceive a child on their honeymoon.
"Meghan will get pregnant in her first year of marriage if she can," Specht tells the publication. "Having a family is going to be a priority for her." The woman further contends that the former "Suits" star is "desperate" to have kids right away. Specht, however, is basing this speculation on her past history with Markle, which was brief, and not any recent conversations. The woman is no longer in a relationship with the former actress's half-brother. Additionally, Markle hasn't been in contact with her half-sibling for several years.
It should go without saying, but the ex-fiancee of Markle's estranged half-brother doesn't exactly have the scoop on when she plans to have a baby. The entire article is based on nothing but speculation from someone who once barely knew the future royal a long time ago. Despite all of this, the unreliable tabloid deceptively sells its story as if Prince Harry and his bride-to-be are already expecting a baby. They're not, and this is all utterly absurd.
Unfortunately, we're not surprised by the publication's bogus cover story, as Gossip Cop has repeatedly called out New Idea for making up stories about the future princess. We recently busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Markle is "lonely and frustrated" while trying to adjust to royal life. Shortly before that nonsense, the outlet wrongly reported that Prince Harry's dad, Prince Charles, was feuding with Markle's parents. New Idea has proven to have no idea about the royal family, and this latest article might be the most telling example yet.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
