Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are celebrating International Women’s Day and their forthcoming baby girl.

On Monday, just one day after revealing in a bombshell 2-hour Oprah Winfrey interview that their second child will be a girl, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex released their second maternity photo.

Markle, 39, wore a off-the-shoulder floral printed dress by La Ligne ($395) while holding Archie, who will turn two in May, in her arms, with Prince Harry embracing them both from behind.

“What wonderful news to celebrate on International Women’s Day! Congratulations my friends, and welcome to the #girldad club H,” photographer and family friend Misan Harriman captioned the new black-and-white photo.

While the dress is currently sold out in both the brown color seen on Meghan and a red version, there are other styles in the same print available.

It’s perhaps fitting that Markle chose La Ligne for her International Women’s Day photoshoot; the brand was founded by three women — former Vogue editors Valerie Macaulay and Meredith Melling, as well as Molly Howard, rag & bone’s former head of business development — who describe their mission to “empower women of all ages with effortless self-expression.”

Other famous fans of La Ligne include Olivia Wilde, Ashley Benson, Nina Dobrev, Sophia Bush and more.

Last month, Markle revealed her pregnancy in a similar black-and-white photo, laying her head in Prince Harry’s lap in front of the same tree. However, she wore a dress that was custom-made for her by Carolina Herrera creative director Wes Gordon when she was pregnant with Archie.

The designer said that the choice to rewear a dress for such a visible moment sent a “powerful message” about sustainability. “She wore a dress that’s no less beautiful, because it’s two years old… it makes her feel no less special or no less happy,” he said.
