The whole world wants to know the gender of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's baby - and Meghan's good friend Serena Williams might just have revealed that they're expecting a girl! In an interview with E! on Friday, the tennis champion spoke about "a friend" who is expecting a baby and referred to the child as "she". Asked if she has advice for new parents, the mum-of-one answered: "Accept mistakes and don't expect to be perfect. We put so much pressure on ourselves." She then revealed: "My friend is pregnant and she's like, 'Oh, my kid's gonna do this,' and I just looked at her and I was like, 'No, she's not.'" She then quickly moved on to talking about her own experiences.

If wouldn't be unlikely that Serena knows the baby gender, as she threw a lavish baby shower for Meghan in New York last year, which was attended by stars including Amal Clooney and Gayle King. Although it was a very private event, held for the Duchess' close friends, Serena gave fans a glimpse of the shower by sharing a selfie from the hotel suite.
