The couple is currently on their two-week royal foreign tour, during which they first visited Sydney, Australia. During their trip Down Under, which is timed around their attendance at the 2018 Invictus Games, which begin on Oct. 20, Harry made a speech and sweetly included his future child.

In a video tweeted by Omid Scobie, a royal commentator and contributor, on Tuesday, Harry is heard saying, "It’s great to be back in Australia, and especially even more so, this is my wife’s first trip here, so I’m very excited to show her this incredible country of yours."

Then, he added, "We also, genuinely, couldn’t think of a better place to announce, uh, the upcoming baby, be it a boy or girl, so thank you very much," becoming somewhat shy when talking about Meghan's pregnancy. This is the first time he's opened up publicly about becoming a father.

Adding dad to his résumé is something Harry's thought about for a long time. He told ABC News in 2012, "I've longed for kids since I was very, very young. I’m waiting to find the right person. Someone who is willing to take on the job."

And that person is obviously Meghan. As you can see in the photo below, they are going to make the best parents ever.

On Twitter, the palace announced the pregnancy officially on Monday, saying, "Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019…. Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public."

Here's hoping Harry and Meghan make more speeches and talk about their baby because it just makes this even more exciting.
