For the 34 years that he's been alive, Prince Harry has been a lovable part of the royal family. While we were all enjoying seeing him interact lovingly with children he met during his royal engagements, we couldn't help but wonder when he would settle down and have a family of his own. Enter Meghan Markle. For what has seemed like an extremely quick turn of events, Meghan and Harry have gotten married and already started their family in less than a year. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their first baby in spring 2019, and we couldn't be more excited to see Prince Harry as a dad.

Harry is known to be fun-loving and a little carefree -- especially during his wild, younger days. That being said, it can only be assumed that he's going to carry all of these endearing qualities over into his parenting style. Sure, his little kiddo is going to have to be pretty respectful and disciplined to fall in line with the royal family, but we know that the Sussex household is overall going to be a fun one. We know one thing for sure, those Cambridge and Sussex kid play dates are going to be iconic. Any way we can get an invite?

We still have a few months to go until Harry officially becomes a dad, but we can't wait to see him in full father mode. Harry and Meghan have an amazing support system behind them on both sides of the family, so this kid is going to have one rock star life. With the ever-lovable Prince Harry as a dad, it's hard not to have a fun life, right? In case anyone needs any more convincing, here are 20 signs that Harry is going to be one amazing dad.
