Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have both made it pretty clear that they want kids, and the adorable antics of Prince George and Princess Charlotte at baby brother Prince Louis's christening may have given their fans a case of baby fever. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex just finished up a visit to Ireland where a well-wisher asked about the couple's baby plans.

As People reports, while Harry and Meghan were greeting fans, a woman named Elaine Adam-Stewart asked Harry, "My husband also has red hair and he gave me five children—when are you and Meghan going to get going?"

Adam-Stewart told People that Harry laughed and replied, "Five children?—too many."


Elaine’s husband, Simon Stewart, was not with her in the crowd outside the EPIC museum of Irish Emigration, but the English-born woman and her five kids—Nathan, 10, Adelaide, 8, Malachy, 7, Siwan, 5, and Portia, 22 months, were all there—along with an England flag to declare their allegiance to the team for today’s big Semi-Finals World Cup match.

Just after the couple got engaged in November, they sat down with the BBC and were asked if they had plans to start a family soon.

While Harry said "Not currently, no," as Meghan laughed beside him, the royal also added they were taking things "one step at a time" and "hopefully we’ll start a family in the near future."

While the world may have to wait a while for a pregnancy announcement, Meghan and Harry have plenty of royal children (the Queen's growing number of great-grandchildren) to keep them company until they're ready.
