   Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have reportedly been telling their friends the sex of their baby (opens in new tab), even though they haven't confirmed it publicly.

IMPORTANT IMPORTANT IMPORTANT. After much speculation and internet sleuthing (opens in new tab), Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have reportedly been telling their friends the sex of the their baby...and apparently...

It's a boy! A source told  (opens in new tab)Us Weekly (opens in new tab) that while Meghan was at her baby shower in New York City earlier this month, she spilled the beans to her friends.

Speculation about whether the baby would be a boy or a girl started literally the day Meghan and Harry announced the pregnancy, but because of a comment Harry made (opens in new tab) back in October while he and Meghan were on their royal tour, people thought it was going to be a girl.

At a different event on that same royal tour, Harry said (opens in new tab) he *hoped* it would be a girl, which felt like a confirmation to some royal fans.

But then, at Meghan's baby shower last week, her friend Abigail Spencer walked in with two separate gifts wrapped in blue. You can see the tippy top of one of them in this picture.

Congrats Harry and Meg!
