The princess and her husband first announced the happy news on January 24. The happy mom revealed her pregnancy with a photo of her son, August, hugging her growing bump on Instagram. “We’re so excited to share that there will be a new addition to our family this summer,” she wrote.
Princess Eugenie’s mother, Sarah Ferguson, rushed to the comments to share that she was in “Granny Heaven.” Ferguson shared a photo of her grandchild August playing in puddles to her own page with the caption, “You will be sharing puddles, Augie! Superb news, Granny heaven…. So deeply grateful.”
