Stephanie and her prince tied the knot back in 2012. During an interview in 2016, the princess told French magazine, Point de Vue, that she didn’t see children in her near future amid pregnancy rumors.

“I don’t have any plans to become a mother,” the Grand Duchess shared. “For the moment, I’m enjoying spending time with my husband.”

The royal baby update comes following the happy news from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced back in May she had given birth to their first child, Archie Harrison.
