Meghan Markle’s ex-husband Trevor Engelson has announced that he and his wife Tracey Kurland are expecting their first child in September.

Engelson, 43, confirmed the happy news that Kurland, 33, is pregnant with a little girl in a social media post Wednesday.

‘Future mother of the year and girl dad way outta his league! Best thing I’ve ever produced hands down. Baby girl, So excited to meet you in September,’ he wrote.

The Hollywood producer, who was married to the Duchess of Sussex from 2011 to 2013, announced his engagement to American heiress Kurland two weeks after Prince Harry and Markle’s Royal wedding in May 2018.

Engelson and Kurland then tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at the Rosewood Miramar Beach resort in Montecito, California, last May.

His Instagram post announcing they are adding to their brood sparked well-wishes from celebrity friends, including Australian comedian Celeste Barber who Engelson worked with on her memoir Challenge Accepted in 2018.

‘Yass! Let’s be those parents that hook up arranged marriages,’ Celeste wrote on the post.

Engelson, from Great Neck, New York, and Meghan first began dating in 2004 before she shot to fame on TV legal drama Suits. 

The couple dated for six years before getting engaged in 2010 and marrying in a luxurious beach ceremony in Jamaica in 2011.

Their marriage lasted just two years, with sources close to the couple telling The Daily Mail in 2017 that her ascent to fame took its toll on their relationship.   

Weeks into their marriage Meghan got her big break on Suits and spent months each year filming in Toronto, Canada while Engelson stayed at their home in Los Angeles.

‘It put a strain on the relationship. Trevor was in LA making movies, Meghan was in another country five hours’ flight away and it simply took its toll,’ the source said. 

They separated in the summer of 2013 and divorced in 2014, with papers citing ‘irreconcilable differences’. 

It is understood it was Meghan who ultimately decided the marriage was over.

Meghan reportedly sent her wedding ring back to Engelson in the post after they split. 

Engelson, who owns his own production company called Underground and produced films including Robert Pattinson’s ‘Remember Me’ and the Bradley Cooper-Sandra Bullock comedy ‘All About Steve,’ moved on with nutritionist Kurland.   

He proposed to the multi-millionaire banker’s daughter in June 2018 while on a tour of California’s wine country after dating for a year.

The couple celebrated their engagement with a bash in October that year held at a private home in the exclusive Hidden Hills, California.  

While Meghan has also moved on with husband Harry and their son Archie, who will turn one on Wednesday, it is perhaps unlikely she will be sending well wishes to her ex. 

Reports emerged in 2018 that Engelson was working on a TV project about an American divorcee mother who moved to London to marry a British prince. 

The project never materialized.
