The baby is due in the spring.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first child together. 

Kensington Palace announced the happy news on Monday. The child is due in the spring of 2019 and will be the seventh in line to the throne.

Meghan is "feeling well" after having her 12-week pregnancy scan, a source told People magazine.

The couple tied the knot back in May in a lavish wedding. Sources had said the pair would try for children "right away."

"[Meghan's mother] Doria [Ragland] is expecting to be a grandmother by this time next year," a source told Us Weekly earlier this summer. "She’s very excited for Meghan to become a mother."

In a statement Monday, the palace said Ragland was thrilled. "Ms. Ragland is very happy about this lovely news, and she looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild."

Meghan had sparked rumors of a pregnancy just this past Friday, when she wore a loose navy coat to the wedding of Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank, leading many to wonder if she was trying to disguise a baby bump.
