Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first baby — and nobody is more excited than Meghan’s mom, Doria Ragland.

This baby will make the 62-year-old a grandmother for the first time. After the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced the big news on October 15, Doria released a sweet statement.

“Ms. Ragland is very happy about this lovely news and she looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild,” the statement read. Doria and Meghan are close, and Doria actually plans on being around a lot after Meghan gives birth — she’s even found a place to live close to Kensington Palace.

Sources have revealed that Meghan has passed her 12-week scan, and she is doing well. Meghan and Harry’s announcement came just hours after they landed in Australia for their first royal tour together.

It’s been a big week for the royal family! The royal baby news from the duke and duchess came just days after Princess Eugenie’s wedding, which took place in the same chapel where they tied the knot. And the same day that Harry and Meghan announced they were expecting, Pippa Middleton gave birth to her first child.

This means that Prince Louis will have some cousins close in age, and we can’t wait to see all these little ones grow up together.
