Now that 2019 is here, plenty of Royal Family fans have wondering when something (scratch that, someone) else will be here too? Yep, the question, “When is Meghan Markle due?” is on more than just the royal watchers’ minds.

Kensington Palace has kept pretty mum on the Duchess of Sussex’s official due date. Instead of giving the world the info they’re waiting for, the only details were that the baby is due sometime in the “spring of 2019.” So that’s kind of soon. Right?

Well it looks like we might have a more specific answer to the Meghan Markle due date question. During the royal family’s annual Christmas Day stroll to church, one of the well-wishing watchers asked Markle about her growing baby bump. When asked about her due date, Markle didn’t give an exact date—of course she wouldn’t. But she did offer up a bit of extra info.

The exchange, which was caught on video, includes Markle hinting, “We’re nearly there.” Hmm. Could that mean an early spring due date? Even though Markle’s reply to the all-important due date question does get more specific than “sometime in the spring,” it certainly doesn’t pinpoint her baby’s probable birth date.

So it looks like we’ll still have to wait and see.
