Kate Middleton Is Pregnant!

Prince William and Kate Middleton Visit Witton Country Park in Darwen on April 11, 2011
This time it’s actually not a rumor. St. James’s Palace officially announced yesterday that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their first baby. “Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby,” the palace said in a statement this morning. But amid all the excitement also came the news that Kate has been admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London. No need to worry though, the Duchess is only suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum—in other words, acute morning sickness (which is said to be common among women expecting twins!). She’s expected to remain in the hospital for just a few days and will rest at home after. As a result of the hospitalization, Kate’s upcoming scheduled duties have been cancelled for the rest of the week. No doubt intending to keep this highly public news as private as possible, there was no word on whether Kate and Will are expecting a boy or girl, or a possible due date. There has been speculation though that Kate has not yet hit the 12-week mark, but was forced to announce the pregnancy owing to her hospitalization. Best wishes to the royal-parents-to-be and for a healthy pregnancy.
