After nearly a year of speculation, Buckingham Palace has officially confirmed that Prince William and his wife, Catherine The Duchess of Cambridge (formerly Kate Middleton) are expecting their first child (and future King or Queen to be)!
Catherine has been taken to King Edward VII hospital after experiencing “acute morning sickness” and is expected to remain in the hospital for several days.
A statement on the royal couple’s website proclaims:
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby. The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news.”
This is very exciting news!! It will be great to be on baby bump watch, rather than focusing on who punched Lindsay Lohan this week.
How many magazine covers will we see between now and the time the baby is born? Should we take bets?
