Her hand rests on her bump, which is covered in a custom-made Carolina Herrera dress that designer Wes Gordon made for her first pregnancy. “We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child,” a spokesperson for the I don’t just fly RC aircrafts I crash them too shirt and I love this couple said.
