We certainly hope so.

Meghan Markle has had a very big year - leaving a career in acting, moving to a new country, marrying a Prince and getting her own royal title, now Duchess of Sussex.

But the 37-year-old's year might be about to get even better, with rumours spreading that the former Suits actress might be about to add a new title to her name - Godmother.

Yes, really. But not to a royal baby.


It was rumoured that Meghan might become a Godmother just months ago, with the now Duchess at one point in the running to be Prince Louis' Godmother, just missing out to Lucy Middleton, Lady Laura Meade and Mrs. Robert Carter.

But now it seems that Meghan might have a second chance, with it rumoured once more that she could receive the honour.

To who? The newborn baby of her good friend and Suits TV husband, Patrick J Adams.

That's right. Meghan's former co-star and BFF Patrick J. Adams just announced the arrival of his and his wife Troian Bellisario's baby girl.

'The world just got 8lbs heavier,' Adams posted to his Instagram alongside a sweet photo of the newborn clutching his finger. 'Thank you to everyone who fought for and protected our privacy during this incredible and beautiful time in our lives. Everyone is happy and healthy and loving every moment of this. I could not be more excited to bring a baby girl into this world at this moment. We will raise her to be powerful, to always speak her mind and heart and to live without fear. It’s a brand new day and a brave new world and they are both beautiful.'

Now that she has arrived, who is the public's favourite for Godmother? You guessed it, Meghan Markle.

Please let this be true.

Huge congratulations to Patrick and Troian! And of course, fingers crossed for Meghan!
