Last week, fans took to guessing the baby's gender after Harry posted a sweet photo of Izzy looking down lovingly at her growing baby bump. The dimly lit picture, which was simply captioned: "We can't wait to meet you [love heart emoji]," went down a treat, with many believing that the couple would be having a son. "Boy bump," one said, while another wrote: "I guess a boy." A third observed the size of the bump, writing: "Is she not having twins?"

 

We can't wait to meet you ❤️

Fans guessed the baby's gender after Harry posted this sweet photo 

The happy couple, who are also parents to 18-month-old Lola, announced their pregnancy news back in April in a seriously sweet series of photos. Harry posted a photo of Izzy and Lola, which showed them sitting next to each other on the floor wearing matching dungarees and clutching their stomachs. "Lola, where's baby?" the image was captioned.

Meanwhile, Izzy posted another adorable picture of her and Lola, this time with the little girl tenderly kissing her growing bump. Opening up about their previous struggles to conceive their first daughter, she wrote of her “miracle” pregnancy: "Harry, Lola and I are so happy to share our news. After having IVF to conceive Lola people used to say to me you'll probably fall pregnant naturally next time. I wondered how it would ever be that simple after all the difficulties we have previously faced. I never believed we would be lucky enough, but whilst writing Dare to Dream this little miracle happened. I want to give others hope that amazing things can happen."
