Kate Middleton and Prince William may soon welcome a baby girl into the royal family, a report said Wednesday. According to Star Magazine, the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with her third child with the Duke of Cambridge.
Middleton is "two months pregnant" and the royal couple is "beyond thrilled" about the news, Star Magazine reported, adding that the announcement will be made by the royal family "when they’re ready."
“Kate and William agreed long ago that big families were best. They’ve always wanted at least three kids, and for them to be close in age. This latest addition couldn’t be more welcome,” a source told the magazine. “They told the queen about it first,” and the rest of the royal family is “all very excited for the arrival of George and Charlotte’s little sister.”
However, Gossip Cop debunked the report, citing a representative of Kensington Palace, that the couple has not made any such announcement to the family.
Since Middleton gave birth to Princess Charlotte last year, the royal couple has been surrounded with several rumors about their child. Last month, the Daily Star reported Middleton wants to have a third baby and is hoping to conceive later this year. Life & Style magazine had also previously reported Middleton was pregnant with twins. However, Gossip Cop debunked the pregnancy rumors at the time.
Earlier this month, a source close to the royal couple told Vanity Fair that Middleton and William want to expand their family.
“I’m concentrating very much on my role as a father. I’m a new father and I take my duties and my responsibilities to my family very seriously and I want to bring my children up as good people with the idea of service and duty to others as very important,” William told BBC in April.
The couple also has been surrounded with rumors about marital troubles. Last month, InTouch Weekly reported that the two are "heading towards couples therapy" as they are "plagued by personal and royal tensions."
