With Meghan Markle set to give birth any day now, it's no surprise that royal fans are reading into anything and everything surrounding the duchess in hopes for a clue about Baby Sussex's sex. But in a recent interview, Meghan's pal Serena Williams might have actually leaked the soon-to-be royal baby's gender. (For real!) 

And spoiler alert: It's not what we originally thought. 

  • While speaking with E! News on Wednesday, the tennis champ talked about motherhood and the pressure women put on themselves. 

    After being asked what her advice to new moms would be, Serena said, "Accept mistakes and don’t expect to be perfect."

    But then things got weird. 

    Continuing on, the mom of one said, "My friend is pregnant. And she was like, ‘My kid’s gonna do this,’ and I just looked at her and was like, ‘No, she’s not. No, you’re not.’"

  • "She"? O RLY???

  • Naturally, everyone is assuming that Serena is talking about Meghan Markle, who's one of her closest friends.

    Serena and Meghan have been friends for a long time -- long before Meghan started dating Prince Harry. And in addition to Serena attending the royal wedding last May, she also was there for Meghan's baby shower in New York City a few weeks ago -- so there's a good chance she's in the know!

  • Not long after Meghan's baby shower, the general consensus seemed to be that Meghan was having a boy.

    In addition to a few of her friends, like Abigail Spencer, showing up with gifts wrapped in blue, it's been reported that the duchess has been openly talking about the royal baby's gender -- and it's a boy. 

    With so much gossip and speculation, it's impossible to say. 

  • Obviously, Meghan Markle isn't Serena Williams's only friend, so there's a good chance she was talking about another pregnant friend.

    That being said, though, the timing is a little weird for such a comment. Of course we're all going to think of Meghan when Serena mentions a "pregnant friend."

    In a few short weeks -- or, heck, days! -- we'll know. Thanks for the excitement, though, Serena!
