Meghan Markle reportedly “demanded” that her ex-husband signed a “pregnancy contract” – making sure she could stay in shape if she had his child.
The Mail Online have reported that the former Suits actress insisted on a strict contract which included a personal trainer, nutritionist and nanny.
According to the publication, Meghan requested her first husband Trevor Engelson pay for everything if she was to get pregnant.
“It came up at a time when they were considering having a family, at some point in the near future,” said a friend, who was once 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 claimed.
“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,” the friend added.
Meghan and Prince Harry are expecting their first child in May 2019.
