Uh, how exciting! "J'attends un garcon" definitely means "I'm expecting a boy". I don't know if this source is reliable though, don't know the magazine.

Premiere takes Tatiana statement from La Voz: "“Estoy esperando un hijo, sí estoy embarazada”, e.i. "I am expecting a child, I am pregnant. I don´t know in which language she said it, but in the Spanish report it is not made clare wheter it is a boy or a girl. The French translated "hijo" as "garcon", which is a mistake. Now, if the question and answer were in French she may have said "garcon" and then the Spanish translation is wrong. So, she may be expecting a boy, but we don´t know if she said it. Hope it makes sense

It does! Having read the Spanish version first, I've also had the impression it could be a subsequent mistranslation. Hijo can both be used for "son" and "child". We'll see, the important thing is that the child is healthy

Until recent times a lot of things were hidden, pregnancies out of wedlock being one of these things. People that knew about these things kept their mouths shut (they didn't go to the newspapers or the media and tell all) and everyone pretended like everything was perfect when it wasn't.

If Andrea and Tatian marry, it should be because they want to be married, not because someone pressured them to marry. Getting married due to pregnancy is not the best reason to get married as how many marriage last when people get married solely for this reason. Some do, but many don't.

Well, I can certainly understand why Tatiana looks grey, sweaty and unwell, being into the 3rd trimester. Andrea really needs to do less of whatever he is doing that is making him look so unhealthy. When he was about 24-25, he was a stunningly good looking young man. And, IMPHO, he needs to marry that girl and make the baby the rightful heir to the principality before Andrea drops from whatever better living through chemistry he has going.

Yes the change in Andrea over the last years is striking in the video. He looks too thin in the face and pale. And Scooter it is a good idea that they should marry now to make the baby the rightful heir. If he dies the baby cannot become the heir, unless they have married. Both Andrea and Tatiana need to do something about their long hair which looks actually greasy.

Why they should marry now? Louis and Tessy married when Gabriel was 6 months old, so why Andrea and Tatiana cannot do the same?

Because he does not want his child being heir of Monaco as he should be if Charlène has no children.

It's too early for such a speculation; Charlene is still young.

I wonder why nowadays (and for months now) we never see the couple anymore.

Exactly. The princes of monaco are not royals.
Also, Monaco is not a democracy, so they aren't subject to the public opinion the same way other royals are.
They are just big landlords whith ruling right over the monaco citizens and owners of most of the businesses in their little land.
The monaco citizens (the real monegasques, not the millionaires who've obteined their residence rights) are virtually Grimaldi employees.

On the other hand they don't live out of their citizen's taxes like other royals do. They don't cost a single euro to the monegasques, rather the contrary, they are their source of richness.

So, yes, they can do whatever they like with their lifes and make as many children as they want.

Also, I've noticed that people who don't come from traditional catholic countries tend to have a conservative views about catholic people, that is quite old-fashioned in tradiional catholic areas.

Nearly all young catholics in France, Spain, Italy, Portugal live with their partners before getting married.
Most catholics get civil divorces and many conceive children before getting married.

A few old fashioned people still follow the Roman rules but they are a minority, most people are much more relaxed about this kind of things and most priests baptize children of unmarried parents without raising an eyebrow.

Firstly, I wish Andrea a long and happy life, but should a tragedy strike and he passed away before marrying Tatiana, I doubt that would keep the child from ascending to the Monegasque Throne one day (provided Albert has no children, of course). Given the couple's expressed wish to marry (and thus legitimise the child), in all probability an Act would be passed legitimising him and granting succession rights.

Secondly, I think one of the reasons Andrea and Tatiana decided to marry after their child is born is because if they married right now, it would be too much like a shotgun wedding. Whereas by marrying after the birth of their child, they are sending a clear signal their union will take place because they want to, not because they were forced by circumstances.

And thirdly, a decision like that should be made only by the couple and for reasons they see fit. They made the choice to marry after their child is born and that should be respected.
