Meghan Markle and Harry just welcomed their second child together!

The couple welcomed their daughter on Friday, June 4. “It is with great joy that Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, welcome their daughter, Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, to the world," said a statement released from the couple on Sunday, June 6. "Lili was born on Friday, June 4 at 11:40 a.m. in the trusted care of the doctors and staff at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, CA. She weighed 7 lbs 11 oz. Both mother and child are healthy and well, and settling in at home.”

The statement continued to explain the sweet significance behind her name, as she’s named after both The Queen and the late Princess Diana. “Lili is named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet. Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales. This is the second child for the couple, who also have a two-year-old son named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The Duke and Duchess thank you for your warm wishes and prayers as they enjoy this special time as a family."

The couple also wrote a message on their Archewell website thanking everyone for their support. “On June 4th, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili. She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe,” they wrote. “Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family."

A statement released from Buckingham Palace said, “The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been informed and are delighted with the news of the birth of a daughter for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex."

The couple first announced their pregnancy on Valentine’s Day. The happy news came a couple months after Meghan revealed she had suffered a miscarriage in July 2020, writing about her experience in a powerful and honest essay for The New York Times.

They shared during their interview with Oprah that they were expecting a girl due sometime this summer.

Congratulations to the family of now four!

We just love the name Harry and Meghan chose for their daughter! If you’re still looking for your perfect baby name, check out TheBump.com for some help.
