The closer Meghan Markle gets to her due date, the more details about her baby are beginning to trickle in. According to a report from Vanity Fair, Meghan is planning to raise her baby as gender fluid, and it sounds like Prince Harry is totally on board with the plan. 

  • According to what an insider told the magazine, Meghan is keeping it as gender neutral as she can, and that extends to the way she'll raise her baby.

    “Meghan has been talking to some of her friends about the birth and how she and Harry plan to raise their baby," the source said. "Her exact word was fluid. She said they plan to raise their child with a fluid approach to gender and they won’t be imposing any stereotypes.”

    Meghan is hardly the first mom to do this in recent years -- raising a baby without traditional stereotypes isn't that radical, and it totally sounds like something she'd be into.

  • But because this is the Internet, of course people had a lot of opinions, and most of them were negative.

    Some thought Queen Elizabeth wouldn't approve -- um, unless you know her personally, how do you know how she'd feel about her newest great grandchild? 

  • And others mocked Harry and Meghan for being "woke." 

    To be fair, being woke is positive, and being socially conscious is actually a good thing.

  • And others were worried that a gender fluid nursery might be boring.

    Don't worry, gender neutral nurseries can definitely be adorable. When you're keeping it neutral, that means all colors are for your baby, not just pink or blue, so the world is your oyster. 

  • Meghan and Harry are the ones who know what's best for their baby, and it sounds like they're handling it.
