The Duchess of Sussex is officially a mummy.

The former Meghan Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, announced the arrival of the new royal baby Monday morning.

Baby Sussex came just in time for Mother's Day, but it seems like Meghan's already received the perfect Mother's Day gift.

In February, Meghan was spotted in cozy leggings and sneakers as she left New York following a star-studded baby shower — with one new accessory that caught our attention: her delicate gold necklace.

The piece is an 18-karat gold Jennifer Meyer necklace that says the word "mummy" and was gifted to the duchess as a baby shower gift, the brand confirmed to TODAY.

Though the term "mummy" is decidedly British, the brand's website said the necklace was "made with love in Los Angeles," which makes it even more special for the California-born duchess.

For expectant mums across the pond, the company also makes a version of the necklace that says "mommy."

Personalized jewelry is a fun way for any new mom to celebrate her journey into motherhood, and we've seen the trend grow in recent years. Plus, it makes a great baby shower gift!

Beth Goldstein, fashion footwear and accessories industry analyst for The NPD Group, agreed that personalized jewelry is very fitting for new moms.

"Personalized jewelry is a trend in general, and having a child is one of the most emotional and personal experiences, so it makes sense that a customized piece of jewelry would be a popular 'push gift,'" Goldstein told TODAY.

"I think it has been around for many years, but options for personalization and the ease of designing the perfect piece have increased more recently," she added. "A number of brands and retailers are offering mix-and-match components that allow for the new mom (or gift giver) to choose the symbols, initials, messages, etc. that mean the most to them. Going to a jeweler to create a piece from scratch is no longer the only option."
