Meghan Markle’s ex-husband Trevor Engelson has announced he’s expecting his first child – a daughter – with second wife Tracey Kurland in September.

The film producer, who was married to the Duchess of Sussex from 2011 to 2013, confirmed the happy news on Instagram on April 30.

“Future mother of the year and girl dad way outta his league! Best thing I’ve ever produced hands down. Baby girl, So excited to meet you in September,” the 43-year-old exclaimed alongside a photo of himself proudly cradling Tracey’s bump.

However, the sad reality of the current COVID-19 pandemic means the couple have obviously had to take extra precautions and in the snap, were both wearing protective face masks.

The post was quickly flooded with well wishes from high-profile names, including Australian comedian Celeste Barber.

“Yass! Let’s be those parents that hook up arranged marriages,” Celeste, who has two sons, joked.

Trevor worked alongside Celeste when she launched her memoir, Challenge Accepted in 2018.

After dating for six years, Meghan and Trevor, who owns his own production company called Underground, became engaged in 2010.

In September 2011, they tied the knot in an extravagant beach-side wedding at the Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. There were over 100 guests in attendance and the celebrations kicked on for days.

Their marriage lasted just two years and by September, 2013 they had quietly separated.

Sources close to the couple claim Meghan’s role on Suits, which is filmed in Toronto, played a part in their demise.

“It put a strain on the relationship. Trevor was in LA making movies, Meghan was in another country five hours’ flight away and it simply took its toll,” a friend told The Daily Mail.

In 2018, Trevor was apparently set to cash in on his marriage to Meghan with reports claiming he was working on a TV show with a very familiar plot line.

According to Deadline, the show was set to be based on an American divorced mother who moves to London to marry a British Prince.

Reports claimed the show would explore the difficulties of sharing custody with the royal family when your ex-wife is married to a Prince.

Although the exes don’t have any kids, the controversial concept was said to be dreamt up after Trevor spoke to fellow producer Dan Farah, speculating what it would have been like if they did have to share custody of children. Ultimately, the project never saw the light of day.

After ending her marriage with Trevor, Meghan famously moved on with Prince Harry and the couple share 11-month-old son Archie, while Trevor wed nutritionist Tracey Kurland last year.

Tracey may not be royalty but she is an American heiress. The nutritionist’s father Stanford L. Kurland is well-known banker, who is worth $USD200 million.
