AceShowbiz - Meghan Markle is clearly looking forward to welcoming her second child with Prince Harry. When delivering a speech for "Global Citizen's Vax Live: The Concert To Reunite The World" event, the Duchess of Sussex could not help but talk about her unborn daughter.
"Women, and especially women of color, have seen a generation of economic gain wiped out," the 39-year-old former actress began her message in a pre-taped video. "Since the pandemic began, nearly five-and-a-half million women have lost work in the U.S. And 47 million more women around the world are expected to slip into extreme poverty."
Meghan, who co-chaired the event along with her husband, went on to share about what she feels when thinking about their unborn child. "My husband and I are thrilled to soon be welcoming a daughter. It's a feeling of joy we share with millions of other families around the world," she first raved. "When we think of her, we think of all the young women and girls around the globe who must be given the ability and support to lead us forward."
"Their future leadership depends on the decisions we make and the actions we take now to set them up, and set all of us up, for a successful, equitable, compassionate tomorrow," the expectant mom continued. "We want to make sure that as we recover, we recover stronger. That as we rebuild, we rebuild together."
During her speech, the former "Suits" star also sported Awe Inspired's "Women Power Charm Necklace" in honor of her baby. The gold jewelry featured a pendant with the symbol for female alongside of a raised fist.
Meghan and Harry announced their second pregnancy on Valentine's Day, February 14 via Instagram. In addition to the unborn daughter, the married couple share son Archie, who just celebrated his second birthday on May 6.
