How Much Did Meghan Markle's Pregnancy Cost? A LOT!

May 7, 2019

Meghan Markle spent her 9 months with baby-on-board a lot differently than us commoners.  If you have experience in popping out a bun or two you might want to stop reading now because you’re about to be extra jealous.

According to Business Insider, Meghan’s pregnancy was expensive.  Very, very expensive. 

  • Baby shower - $200,000
  • Maternity wardrobe - $500,000
  • Private jets - $100,000
  • Nursery - $65,000
  • Acupuncture - $11,000
  • Babymoon - $43,000

First of all… Alexa, what is a “babymoon?”

“A relaxing or romantic vacation taken by parents-to-be before their baby is born.”

Got it.  Sounds crucial.  Definitely couldn’t live without one of those.  Anyway, as you can see the listed items amount to a shade under $1 million.  That doesn’t even include medical bills so I’m sure we’re looking at well over a mil when it’s all said and done.  The royal family didn’t foot the entire bill, though.  Tennis star Serena Williams paid for her baby shower.  Rich friends are the best.
