Adams tweeted a heartfelt message to Markle, Prince Harry, and their new baby saying, “Just heard that the world just got heavier by 7 pounds and 3 ounces. Much love to him and his incredible parents. Learned first hand 7 months ago how transformational becoming a parent is and couldn’t be happier for Meghan and Harry as they begin this adventure. #playdatesoon”

Adams became a parent himself when he welcomed a baby girl with his wife, fellow actress Troian Bellisario (Pretty Little Liars) in Oct. 2018, according to People. And this isn’t the first time Adams has mentioned playdates with Baby Sussex. Attending the Good for a Laugh benefit in Los Angeles, Entertainment Tonight asked Adams and Bellisario about possible playdates between Baby Sussex and their daughter. “Maybe at her house. It’s a little bigger,” Adams jokingly told the publication.

As for parenting tips, Adams felt Markle didn’t need any. “We’ve shared exactly zero tips with her because I don’t think Meghan needs any tips about anything,” Adams said. On the same topic, Bellisario said, “She looks like she knows what she’s doing.”

Sarah Rafferty sends ‘blessing across the pond’

Actress Sarah Rafferty also got close with her former co-star Markle while on set. Rafferty’s character, Donna Paulsen, and Markle’s character, Rachel Zane, were what one would call, “work wives.” They looked out for each other at work and were close friends. Understandably, Rafferty and Markle became somewhat of work wives themselves because they were often in scenes together.
