[Blind Gossip] This actress is having a baby. That’s no secret. Everyone in the world knows about it since her husband announced it on national television!
It’s also no secret that Actress wants to give birth at home.
However, we do have some interesting information about what is going on behind the scenes!
While the couple is very private, they have a new employee.
What is a doula?
A doula is a woman who is employed to help out an expectant mother during her pregnancy and birth.
Doulas are not obstetricians. They are not nurses.
No, they are not midwives, either.
Doctors, nurses and midwives all have formal medical training.
Doulas do not have formal medical training. They are companions. They guide a woman through the pregnancy and birth process. Sometimes they stay on after the birth to support the post-partum mother. They are there to help with the mental and emotional aspects of giving birth.
Given our couple’s extreme attention to mental health and emotional health, it makes sense that they would hire someone to assist with that side of the pregnancy and birth.
Although Actress’ baby is not due for months, the doula is already on the scene.
Actually, she more than just on the scene.
She is now living with the couple in their home!
[Actress] wanted [Doula] there with her full time. She also didn’t want nosy reporters seeing [Doula] coming and going from the house.
So Doula is now living with them! Hey, it’s a big house. Plenty of room.
Now, about that home birth.
One room is being kitted out as the birthing room. It has everything to keep [Actress] comfortable: music, candles, aromatherapy, acupuncture, and homeopathic remedies.
It’s like a little spa.
That’s not all.
The doula is suggesting that she get a hypnotherapist, too.
The couple is talking to Doula about several different options for the actual delivery.
What kinds of options?
They could use a birthing stool, which would allow her to sit upright during labor.
They are also talking about using a labor sling or birth swing.
That’s a fabric device that hangs from the ceiling. Actress would hang from her arms or the upper part of her abdomen and let gravity do the work.
It’s so effective that the woman above just gave birth to a giant purple exercise ball!
Another option is a water birth.
She likes the idea of relaxing in a birth pool filled with warm water.
That sounds really peaceful.
Well, except for one tiny detail.
She is talking about having the whole family in the pool with her.
Say what now?
Now that sounds bloody awful. Pun intended.
Don’t even get us started on what they are going to do with the placenta.
It supposedly involves avocado toast and sea salt.
We’ll be sure to get the recipe for you.
Similar: The Second Baby
[Optional] Does this sound normal or weird to you? Do you think the Husband is on board with all of this? Please use real names and keep your comments civil.
Couple: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have hired a doula… and she has moved in with them!
We don’t know exactly how the couple are going to handle the home birth. As we told you in the original blind item, they have lots of options.
We are secretly hoping that they opt for the water birth.
Everybody in the pool! Wheee!
Why are we solving this blind item so quickly?
Well, we were lucky enough to score the recipe we told you about and wanted to share it with you right away.
Note: When preparing this recipe, make sure you start with fresh placenta.
If the placenta is still warm coming out of the body, rinse it thoroughly in cold water and pat dry. That will help the edges crisp up nicely during cooking.
Avocado Toast with Crispy Sea Salt Placenta
1 Avocado, sliced
2 Slices bread, toasted
8 oz Fresh placenta, rinsed in cold water
¼ Cup onions, diced
1 Clove garlic, minced
1 Tblsp butter
1. Toast bread and arrange avocado slices on top
2. Chop placenta into small pieces using scissors. Sprinkle the placenta liberally with sea salt.
3. Saute onions and garlic in butter over medium heat for five minutes until softened and fragrant
4. Add placenta and cook until no longer pink and just starting to crisp along the edges.
5. Season placenta with more sea salt and cracked black pepper.
6. Top avocado toast with seasoned placenta.
We totally need to do a cookbook someday.
Congratulations to Harperleigh for being first with the correct response!
Meghan Markle herself just called us!
We thought she would be upset that we had let the cat out of the bag about the doula and the labor sling and the water birth and the placenta.
She was actually cool about all of it!
It’s a California thing.
Afterward, Meghan was even kind enough to send us some amazing placenta recipes!
Scroll down to check them out…
Did you think that this crazy blind item was real?
Then you are an April Fool!
Every year, folks. Every year.
You know what’s weird?
For our 2020 April Fools blind item, we used that exact same photo of the redhead baby… and declared that Harry and Meghan’s next baby was going to be a girl!
One year later, and here we are.
Thank you for playing along this year!
Oh, and do NOT use that Avocado Toast with Crispy Sea Salt Placenta recipe. We totally made that up!
See you next year!

April Fools everyone!!BG has the best April Fools!!
I’m waiting to see April Fool’s! How can this not be an April Fool’s Day joke? In past years, I think it was announced by now. It’s solved rather fast…I’m still expecting this to turn out to be a joke.
This has got to be your annual April fools blind item😂
Britty Woman says
I can believe the doula but please let the bloodbath be April Fool part one?
Happy April Fool’s. You’re getting pretty good at these, BG!
April Fool’s Day!
Eyeroll. April Fools Day post.
I’m calling April’s Fools on this. Mostly because I refuse to believe this could actually happen!
Thank you BG, Aprils fools part 1.
Harry & Meg
Most of it is fairly common, although I would be concerned about a risk of infection with the entire family being in the pool (unless they bathed & used an antibacterial soap immediately before entering it. The placenta is a little weird since it’s quite common to have it turned into capsules. My guess is that instead they will use the placenta to nourish a tree they planted (in Diana’s name I’m sure)
Love these April Fool’s blinds!
Couple: Megs & Harry
Sounds a bit unusual, given that she is almost 40(!) complications are more likely with geriatric mothers, hospital should be advised. Husband Harry probably on board and doing what he’s told.
What a bloody mess!! Thanks for the toast pic, I think Ill pass on breakfast this morning.
You’re the best, BG!!
My favorite part of April Fool’s Day is seeing what BG will come up with next.
Nicely done, BG!
Harry and Mrs Windsor
Very weird, at her age she should be giving birth in hospital with every medical assistant on hand.
Harry is so far down the rabbit hole he will never be himself again.
April Fool, Part 1?
This is Harry and me again, and possibly one of your yearly April.fools day posts?
Harry and Meghan
Mrs Polkadot says
OK, please tell me this is another April Fool’s blind re M&H…
April fools 🙂
Feel like this is Markle
Prince Harry and Megan, this is also could be APRIL FOOLS.
That birthing pool family picture is forever going to give me nightmares!
Meg and Harry.
Yes, he’s been on board so far when she influenced him to give up his home, his family, his renowned status, and his “job”. Why would he bother to draw the line here?
I googled “family birthing pool” because sometimes I like to gross myself out, and there was another boy in the pool who got cropped out of this picture. He’s old enough to know he’s sitting in blood. Very strange.
stories unveiled says
Okay. April 1st . . hmmm. What a FOOL I’ve been this year BG. You had me absolutely believing the family, bloody tub birth and the placenta bread. lol.
OMG. Two Blind Gossip items for April fools this year. You fooled me on both. You’ve out done yourselves!! 😀
Ew at the tub pic! Why does the brother need to be in there?!? His parents were like, “We see your family bed, and we raise you family birthing tub!”
Meghan and Harry. It’s exhausting.
Megan Markle & Harry
It got weirder the farther I read.
Is Harry in board? He doesn’t have a choice. Like he once screamed at the Queen’s Assistant: “What Meghan wants, Meghan gets”.
Even if she hasn’t completely brainwashed him, he’s afraid of her temper.
Meghan and Harry. These two are TOO much.
Happy April Fool’s Day!!!!
HA HA HA April Fools!
Meghan Markle –
Weird and IRRELEVANT – Due to the fact the geriatric old girl will, more than likely, end up in the Labor ward of the nearest hospital to avoid complications that come along with geriatric pregnancies such as hers. That is my prediction.
As for Harry – He’s probably already “cutting washers” at the idea of consuming the placenta – I reckon he’s planning how to feed it to the dog under the table, without being caught.
I reckon DORIA is the DOULA.
Harry and Meghan. So obvious it’s them.
Harry and Meghan
Meghan and Harry, April Fools!
Funny. April Fools!
Happy April Fool’s Day.
Even Meghan can’t be that ridiculous. This has to be an early BG gift for April Fool’s.
Couple: The Markle.
Does this sound normal or weird to you? It sounds very self indulgent. Who needs a doula for a second birth? Who needs a doula for a first birth, for that matter?!
Do you think the Husband is on board with all of this? Husband can only think with his little head apparently.
I imagine this is a reference to the lovely Duchess of S. If so, I find this quite inconsistent with a desire for privacy . . . I cast no shame or disrespect on any woman who wants to try a home birth. But regardless of who this might be: I hope that – for the baby’s sake – there are contingency plans to get the mother to a hospital stat if the baby becomes distressed during labor.
Meghan Markle. I’m sure she is making as a big a fuss and spending max $$$ on her pregnancy and delivery. She seems like one of those annoying women that think they’re the first person to have ever had a baby and therefore so special and important.
Harry does what she tells him to do.
Harry and Meghan. Eating the placenta is just gross!!!
So my last (third) birth was a spontaneous home one, totally alone. Guess what, we’re just another animal, designed to bitth our offspring without stools, baths, or doulahs. Its not a big deal.
harry and meghan.
I think the theme is dont let any male establishment doctor take away your female power. This is going to be empowering to women. MM is going to be showing us her womanly power as she births a female child into the hands of the female doula.
I think harry will support it all because MM is wearing his cohones for earrings. He is just there to pay the bills anyway.
harry and megan this must be part one of the april fools post!!! you do a great job every year!
This is UNBE-LIE-VABLE!
Especially since it’s an APRIL FOOL’S BLIND! Yaaaaaay! Great job BG!
Will we ever be rid of them?
Meghan Markle and “Just” Harry
Optional: None of it sounds weird to me but it’s personal preference and every woman and every birth is different. That being said, I still greatly dislike Meghan and Harry so don’t think I’m defending her.
April fools! Thank You BG!
It’s Meghan Markle and her trophy husband Harry.
I read both parts and the scary thing is for a minute or so I really believed it. Meg is like reversed Kim Kardashiam, who started with a p*rn and then slowly became more mainstream suitable. Meg started on top (because nobody knew who she was before Harry and the BRF is on top of our western society), and is on her way down to become reality tv celeb.
stories unveiled says
Love the way you describe Meghan and Kim K and compare contrast. It’s so true!!! Well put!!
Happy April Fools Day!!
April Fools! All kidding aside. She is an elderly woman by OBGYN standards. A baby at home? And if there are complications? No doctor? A doula and a hypnotist? Fat chance there will not be a physician there or at least birthing nurses.
Doc Holiday says
Mischief Girl says
A water birth? That pillow is going to get very soggy!
Meghan and her co-star Harry
Meghan and Harry.
Personally I find birthing without medical professionals and away from medical facilities very dangerous and not something that we should mess with, I’ve seen and heard many sad stories about what can go wrong in these situations, but each to their own, I guess.
Hahhahah Meg Markle
This one sounds real! Harry and Meghan would totally hire a DOula !!
Harry & Meghan
They should be banking that placenta incase their kid needs it for STEM transplants.
Harry & Meghan
Much as I dislike them, a doula doesn’t have to be instead of medical professionals but works alongside them. The swing & waterbirths are proven to help with pain. It’s common for Dad’s to go in birthing pools and even kids can have a little dip with mommy before the business end of labour. Home births are also generally deemed safe after a normal delivery.
I’m not defending them, just for into
Harry and Meghan
And if something goes wrong with the birth, minutes and seconds count to get emergent help !
Love the spills about Hazbeen and Nutmeg!
Sooooo tacky. They’ve both lost their minds!
Is the doula’s name Doria?
LOL!! Love the nicknames!
Harry and Meghan.
Absolutely not watching. I thought they want privacy??
Harry and Megan. Two words: infectious bacteria.
You tricksters, this is the April Fool’s blind about Rachel & Henry! Nicely done.
It sounds as weird as it sounds. And does it matter if he is on board? She’ll do it anyway.
Harry & Meghan, of course. And while having a doula sounds all groovy & stuff, at her age, they’d better have some medical professionals close by just in case they are needed. The risk of complications increases with age.
Just wondering: what if the “doula” is actually their surrogate?
Obviously MM. It makes me wonder if she’s faking another pregnancy. The secrecy and lack of physicians make me scratch my head. Things that make you go hmmmm…
Suzy Kew says
“ I’d like to order one placenta on avocado toast please, and pack it for take out!”
Oh BG, I wait all year for this , and you guys never, ever disappoint !!
HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY !! 🥑
Couple: Mr. and Mrs Markle
April Fools 😁
It would just be a really strange coincidence if the doula was also pregnant and due about the same time, right?
Totally Meghan & Harry!
Hot Cocoa says
*, who planned this for the first baby also:
Is it April 1st again? Placenta? Yuck.
Clearly Meghan and Harry.
I’m sure he’s on board. Whole family in the pool sounds gross/weird, but other than that I don’t see anything wrong. I’m not a mom, but supposedly it’s not ideal to give birth on your back. I wouldn’t want a stool, but the pool or sling sounds fine.
Couple: The Sussexes
None of this is very controversial, really. I feel like this is a bit sensationalist. I mean, Hilary Duff just had her whole family in the birthing tub and no-one batted an eyelid.
I hired a doula for the delivery of my kid and I’m not “woo-woo” at all. In my case at least, the doula was a practical assistant that made it possible for my husband to support me 100% of the time. She also made suggestions about birthing techniques to try and took photos. Absolutely…
Meghan Markle Red headed baby girl & the avocado toast were the clues.
Of course she wants a “home birth.” They don’t want anyone knowing who the surrogate is.
I really wish I had read past the first little paragraph. 😀
I always forget about the April Fool’s blinds. However, I wouldn’t put it past her to claim to have used any of the birthing methods discussed in the blind.
Maybe a little bit out there with having the fam in the birthing pool …. but otherwise I don’t see what’s wrong with any of these if they make Meghan more comfortable. Lots of people use midwives or doulas and as long as they have a doctor on call in case of complications I think it’s fine.
UGH – Markle and Harry
Bit early for the April Fool are we not!!
Defo insinuating Meghan but not buying it!
It’s got to be Meaghan and Harry….
Placenta pate. Barf.
Couple: Meghan Markle and Harry
Geez laweeze…that pool family birth photo was gross. The Markle nut has truly gone round the bend. At her age, she needs to be in a hospital when it’s “time”. Mr. Markle needs to develop a spine & tell her it’s his baby too & he wants to make sure the child has a safe entry to this world.
Couple: Harry and Megs
Optional: I think it is a perfectly reasonable way to deliver a baby. Good for her to try a home birth. I’m sure they have a back-up plan too. No doubt Harry is on-board. I think this blind gives credence to the idea that she is indeed birthing a child herself. Jury is still out about Archie! Perhaps the big event is expected sooner rather than later. 🙂
I’m blown away by this. I didn’t believe she was actually pregnant. i was sure that they were using surrogates!! However…. just realised that tomorrow is April Fools and I’m not going to get caught by this for another year. Got me thinking though BG!!
This is a APRIL FOOLS’ item.
It’s obviously about the * duo, but it’s too absurd even for them.
Oh nooooooo Meghan Markle and Harry nooooooooo
I’ve given birth twice and I can tell you, I’d want to be horizontal, on a comfortable bed, thanks, with a professional ready to catch the newborn. I’ve also seen the blood involved; no way would I want anyone else swimming in that. And the placenta? Seen those too; not appetizing at all.
By the way, those babies I had? Neither of them were born yesterday, and neither was I. You almost had me, right until the placenta! Happy April 1, BG! 😂
Doula means female slave..
Just leaving that there.
Harry and Meghan.
This sounds a bit normal and a bit weird. No, Harry is not on board.
That last photo is gross, little kids should not be subjected to that
Nothing about Meghan Markle is normal. I still think they’re using a surrogate. Her bump size was completely different in between the baby announcement photo, the one holding Archie (she looked 8 most along there), and it even was big in the chicken coop then smaller for Oprah’s interview. And now she has all the privacy she wants with the birth plans and not having to be consistent with her moon bumps in public like she did the first time around.
Doula is the surrogate, explaining the…
Markle? But I thought she didn’t carry, or was it started test tube and then implanted? Anyway one would want to be in great health. For emotional support a Doula makes sense. What doesn’t make sense is excluding a midwife.
Seems reasonable, for her to have the birth she wants?
We all know who this couple is.
Is the husband on board? I don’t think he’s bright enough to have an opinion on anything. Just does what he’s told.
Happy April Fool’s Day!
Meghan Markle & Prince Harry.
Normal to have a doula, I had one myself. Definitely not normal to have her living with you, though. What’s wrong with her being seen coming and going? It’s either extreme paranoia on their part, or maybe an indication there’s actually something to hide. About the rest, I’m not against home births, but they should only be considered in extremely low risk circumstances, and M being a geriatric mother, is automatically high risk and should be delivering in a…
I think the biggest surprise is she’s giving birth herself.
You’re a little early BG!!
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
Home births are not out of the ordinary, I mean look at Hilary Duff, she just had her baby in a pool. But the whole family in the pool with her? Yeah no that’s weird. And Prince Harry is so whipped he’ll of course say yes, after all, what Meghan wants, Meghan gets!
..and has the gestational carrier moved in with them too?
The Harkles. As her husband himself has said, “what Meghan wants Meghan gets,” so looks like he’ll be in the birthing pool too.
Duke & Dss of Hardship- Haz & Meg.
Does this sound normal or weird to you? At her age, (and she’s been reported as ’39’ for several years now), she should be in the hospital.
Do you think the Husband is on board with all of this? He is if she says he is.
Would I eat the placenta in any form? HELL NO!
Ms Markle of course. Some of this seems normal and some seems way out in left field.
Oh man….the expression on that older kid’s face pretty much sums up my response to this idea! The world has seriously gone bananas. Between this and the news that Megan Markle will one day run for president….I can’t even.
Oh god, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. When will they just go away?! I don’t come to blind gossip to read their bios/diaries/to-do list or whatever else they wanna have their people put out in the public. SMH, starving for some real content here!
Make it stop, Make it STOP!
I now know too much about this. Too much about her and her family.
I dont know if its normal or not. I dont have kids. My friends had their children in a hospital.
I’m sure the husband will do whatever she wants.
Normal. A lot of people have doulas and various types of at home births.
When is every other post NOT going to be about MM and H?! There’s gotta be other content to spill the tea on!!
It’s really up to the parents, especially the mother, to decide where and how to give birth. I’d prefer a hospital but then again I’m not a celebrity. Water birth is ok, but with the whole family submersed, sounds gross. I’m sure Harry is on board with whatever she wants. Who cares how she chooses to deliver, as long as everything goes as planned.

Harry and Meghan
Previously commented. Missed the eating & live in Doula part.
JUST NO! If she wants to eat the placenta–whatever. More power to her & baby if there’s any benefit. If Harry eats it. Yuck!
Harry’s shown he can have anyone living full time at his home with Meghan as a companion. He’s lost all boundaries for himself & his life. What’s one more invasion to his personal space (which is long gone) when he handed the keys to his manhood & life to Meghan. $$$…
stories unveiled says
flushed down the toilet with this woman. Harry’s going broke & I’m not sure he knows it. Without Charles’ Duchy money & the family personal money, he’d be broke in a few years. Absolutely drained dry by this woman.
Wait until the divorce and she finds she has no access to his family money except for spousal support & child maintenance. The longer he’s married to her the more he’ll owe her. But he’s not responsible to pay when he doesn’t have it. So the more she drains the less…
stories unveiled says
for her. She has NO CLAIM to the royal family monies. Not even for support or child support. She also has no claim on the payment for the home. She can sell it for its appreciation. But she’ll be responsible for paying for the residence out off her spousal support. All of which ONLY comes from Harry has left after she drains him off.
stories unveiled says
When I say home maintenance monies. I mean if she continues to live in the expensive, huge home & estate after a divorce–Harry alone with HIS money will not be able to give her that much. So she’ll have to cough it up herself or sell & find a less expensive home to maintain. Cost are very high here in Southern California–expensive yearly property tax, monthly water, gas, electric, home insurance, gardeners, house cleaners, & on & on & on. Haven’t even touched on their security bill.
Meghan Markle and Harry. It’s not for me, but I respect that some people go this route. I can totally understand why people choose this as their birth plan, and a lot of people have been going this route for a long time now.
Duh nevermind- this is probably the April Fools post for this year.
Markle. You guys are really out of it if you think there is anything unusual here. Who cares if the prince is on board? He’s not the one giving birth. I don’t know if I like or dislike Markle, but I think the criticism about her is so excessive that a bias is clear. I notice a lot of sexist bias in gossip reporting.
The Big D says
Meghan and Harry
Harry does whatever he is told to do and IF Meghan is actually pregnant this time I have a feeling labor and the pain will be a huge surprise. She is a wackadoodle -nothing she does surprises me.

Obviously weird. I can see looking into alternative ways to birth. But an absolute NO to the bloody family, birthing pool. Just NO!!! I’d be concerned about the birth at her age & the child’s risk. I live in the same neighborhood & know how far they’re from the nearest hospital. Unless they have a helipad on their property, they best have an ambulance at the ready. Brainwash Harry has no separate…

Markle, and Harry. They sound like two hippy granola weirdos.
[Optional] I’m pregnant, but under no circumstances would I give birth in a pool with my husband and his two kids in there with me- no way! For a start, that doesn’t sound sanitary.
Do what you like, but no way do I find the idea of being in a birthing pool relaxing or appealing.
April Fool!! Had me going there for a minute!
Let’s hope she’s wildly unattractive. We all know what happens in Hollywood with live-in nanny’s of sorts 😄 Oh Harry, you’ve really blown it for yourself.
Harry and Meghan
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
Come on this is the Messy Meg, and it is just too much. Does her lapdog Harry go along with this, does he have any say in anything? Don’t think so, will the very private pair have Oprah and Gayle join them in the tub? If it meant more publicity why not! Is the doula realy having the baby and Messy Meg will just remove the fake baby bump and have a beautiful post baby figure? Who knows what is possible with that crazy duo. Just feel sorry for the kids, hope they will get their own shrink .
Is this the yearly April Fool’s prank Blind Gossip does?
Harry and Meghan
I think the “doula” is actually the surrogate mother
I think this is an April Fool’s Day joke 🙂
