Thomas recalled a memory about Meghan's

Meghan's father was crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in his 'Silver' Volvo when he turned on the radio to listen to Red Eye show. The broadcast was suddenly interrupted for a newsflash and an announcement about the royal couple expecting their first child was made by Kensington Palace.

Thomas described it as a proud moment of the slight realization that his baby is going to have a baby now. He recalled how on the hopeful day of August 4, 1981, his beautiful daughter, Meghan, was born in Canoga Park Hospital in Los Angeles. Overwhelmed with love, joy, and happiness, Thomas Markle revealed to Daily Mail:

The first thing I thought about was holding Meghan in my arms as a newborn 37 years ago.
