Meghan Markle reportedly made her ex-husband sign a 'pregnancy contract' in case they conceived
Meghan Markle was immensely concerned about the rigors of baby-making, especially when it came to getting herself back in celebrity-shape after the delivery
According to a strange new report, former 'Suits' actress Meghan Markle made her ex-husband Trevor Engelson sign a 'pregnancy contract' to make sure she was afforded every possible luxury if she gave birth to their child. A close friend of the Duchess of Sussex told the Daily Mail that Meghan asked her ex to pay for a personal trainer, nutritionist, and nanny as a part of the contract.
It is being reported that Meghan, who was then a rising star, was immensely concerned about the rigors of baby-making, especially when it came to getting herself back in celebrity-shape.
Therefore, she demanded husband Trevor Engelson to pay for a personal trainer and a nutritionist to help her along if they conceived.
According to reports, the Duchess of Sussex also had her childcare details sorted out so as to make sure that Engelson was happy to pay for a nanny to help. These revelations about the royal come only days after it was announced by the Palace that Meghan is pregnant with her first child with Prince Harry.
At the time of the pregnancy agreement, which was drawn up about a couple of years after her 2011 wedding to Engelson, Meghan was doing extremely well in her career and etching a name for herself with TV series 'Suits'. "It came up at a time when they were considering having a family, at some point in the near future," said the friend who once used to be close to the Duchess.
"She knows the heavy-weighted body-type runs in her family and has always been terrified of putting on extra pounds, particularly given her career at the time. Anytime she puts on a bit of weight, it shows on her face, so she wanted to make sure she would be camera-ready very quickly."
"She demanded a personal trainer and nutritionist during and after the pregnancy. I'm sure a nanny was discussed too, but the main focus for her was on health and weight." The friend added: "Meghan may have only just joined the royal family, but she always wanted to be treated like a princess."
It should be noted that Meghan did not get any lawyers involved for her pregnancy contract and she is said to have made it herself as an informal document for her husband to sign. Meghan's friend said: "She says she got him to sign something, maybe just a handwritten letter that she could hang over his head. She wouldn't have taken 'no' for an answer and he knew it. But the end of her marriage came before they could take any of the plans forward."
