    Meghan Markle has remained very tight lipped about the sex of her and husband Prince Harry’s baby.

    But it seems like close friend Serena Williams may have (accidentally) let the cat out of the bag.

    Asked about the parenting hacks she has passed onto the Duchess of Sussex – who is due to give birth this month – she told E! News: ‘Accept mistakes and don’t expect to be perfect. We put so much pressure on ourselves.’

    The sportswoman – who has daughter Alexis Olympia with husband Alexis – continued: ‘My friend is pregnant, and she was like, “My kid’s gonna do this.” I just looked at her like, “No, she’s not. No, you’re not.” She was like, “I need to talk to you about tips”, because, yes, I had all of those high expectations.’


    However the professional tennis player has no doubts Meghan will make a great parent. ‘She’ll be the best mom, for sure,’ she gushed.

    After dropping the ‘she’ bomb in her recent interview, gambling company Ladbrokes has slashed the odds of the former Suits actress giving birth to a baby girl from 8/13 to 4/7.

    Meghan and Serena sparked up a friendship at the annual Super Bowl in 2010, and years later they are still as close as ever as the athlete attended Meghan’s lavish New York baby shower.

    Serena for god mother, anyone?
