OK, let's face it. We're all waiting for the day that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announce that they are having another child. We were all on the edge of our seats waiting for them to announce baby No. 1, and now that we have little Archie Harrison in the world, we just can't wait for him to have a sibling. Some might say that's it's far too soon for them to be thinking about having another baby when Archie hasn't even turned 1 year old yet, but we think otherwise. We say now is the perfect time. Let's not forget that both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are approaching 40, so this is really the optimal time for them to be seriously thinking about how big they want their family to be.

But with the news of the Sussexes suing some of the British tabloids, a second baby may have been put on hold ever-so-slightly, but we don't think it'll be a huge delay. Meghan and Harry definitely need time for things to settle down, but if you ask us, we think that this is the best time for them to be thinking about having another baby. Despite all of the nastiness that has been going on in the press about the royal couple, at the end of the day, these two love being parents, and they are definitely going to put their family before anything else.

And if that means that they are actually going to move to Canada and be off the grid for a while, then that's what they are going to do. While we don't really expect that to happen, we do anticipate them to grow their family on their own terms. But if we do say so ourselves, all the evidence is pointing towards this being sooner rather than later, and here are the reasons why we think so.

  • They've Hinted at Wanting More Than One

    Meghan and Harry have never let anyone believe that they wanted to stop at just one kid. They've dropped some hints that they definitely want to extend their family beyond just a party of three, so it's really just a matter of time.

  • They're Not Getting Any Younger

    Both Meghan and Harry are closer to 40 than they are to 30, so if they want to expand their family, they shouldn't wait too much longer. If the Sussexes want more kids, they'll have to act somewhat fast.

  • Kate & Will Have a Large Family

    The Cambridge crew is quite a complete family, so it would make sense that Harry and Meghan would want to follow slightly in their footsteps. The more royal cousins running around together, the better! 

  • But They Might Be Having More

    And let's not forget ... there are rumors that the Cambridges might be adding one more to their brood. Kate has even sparked some pregnancy speculation in the last couple of weeks, so if Cambridges are still adding to their family, we think the Sussexes will want to as well.

  • They've Moved Quickly on Everything Else

    While they don't think of it this way, some have called Meghan and Harry's relationship a whirlwind. They definitely moved fast and got engaged quickly, so why wouldn't they follow suit with having children?

  • They'll Want To Give Archie a Sibling

    We don't think Meghan and Harry have a any interest in making little Archie an only child. They are definitely going to want him to have a little brother or sister running around for him to play with. It's only a matter of time!

  • And They Probably Want Them To Be Close in Age

    And if they do decide to give Archie a little sibling, they would probably want them to be pretty close in age. This means that they would have to have a pregnancy announcement fairly soon. Two years apart always worked for the Cambridges!

  • They'll Want To Be Close in Age to the Cambridge Kids

    And Meghan and Harry wouldn't just want their second kiddo and Archie to be close in age, but they would also probably want him or her to be close with the Cambridge kids as well. Why not have a whole crew of playmates?

  • Things Are Slowing Down (Slightly) for the Sussexes

    OK... we wouldn't say things are slowing down completely, but these two just finished up their tour of Africa, and all of the summer royal activities and come and gone. It wouldn't be the most unrealistic thing to say that they now have time to think about expanding their family, right?

  • They Didn't Waste Any Time With Archie

    Meghan and Harry really didn't waste any time getting pregnant with little Archie, so we don't see why they would wait too long to have another kiddo as well. Like we said before, they would definitely want them to be close in age!

  • A Move Might Be in Their Future

    The location changes about every day, but there is speculation that there will be a move in the Sussexes future. First it was Africa ... now it sounds like Canada. Wherever these two are headed, it certainly sounds like they could be moving to expand and raise their family.

  • Their Upcoming Thanksgiving Trip Is Drawing Suspicions

    This might be making something out of nothing, but it is rumored that these two are going to take a few weeks off and spend some time in the states for Thanksgiving. It's wishful thinking to imagine that they might be using this time to tell Meghan's mom that she's pregnant again, but well, we can hope, right?

  • The Royals Have a History of Big Families

    The royals definitely have a history of having lots and lots of kids. Queen Elizabeth had four of her own, so we really don't think Meghan and Harry would stop at just one. We think this might be one royal tradition that they actually stick to.

  • It Looks Like They Have 'The Itch' Again

    I mean ... just look at that. There's no denying that Meghan and Harry are crazy for kids, so we think there's really no way that they can stop at just one baby. If our dear Kate is still having baby fever after three kids, then the Sussexes definitely do after just having one.

  • Meghan Might Want To Go Off the Grid Again

    We have a feeling that Meghan really enjoyed her time out of the spotlight when she was on maternity leave with the adorable little Archie. Now this isn't reason enough to have another baby, but we think the duchess would definitely enjoy being at home with the kids for a little while.

  • Let's Face It, They Love Being Parents!

    Anyone who has seen Meghan and Harry in the last six months can tell that these two just absolutely love being parents. We think that the Sussexes aren't going to be able to help themselves with giving Archie a little sibling to hang out with.
