Kate Middleton Is Pregnant

Kate Middleton Pregnancy Confirmed

A royal baby is on the way! Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting a baby, Clarence House confirmed today. In a press release on their site, the royals shared the happy news.

"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. The Duchess was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with Hyperemesis Gravidarum [morning sickness]. As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter."

It will be the first child for both William and Kate, who married in April of 2011. Both William and Kate have been open about their desires to start a family. In September, Prince William said he'd like "two" kids, and last July, Kate shared her "hopes" for a little ones with a well-wisher while in Quebec City. There has been a great deal of speculation over William and Kate's plans in recent months, as she hasn't been photographed with any alcoholic drinks and has been exhibiting a preference for belted coats and dresses.

We're so excited for William, Kate, and the royal family. Congrats to the couple!
