Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is said to be pregnant with her third child. The royal is already a mother to Prince George and Princess Charlotte, but Life & Style magazine claimed Prince William’s wife is expecting another heir.
The cover of the story claims: “Kate’s joy. Pregnant again!” The bullets underneath it read: “Whoops! Kate’s unexpectedly expecting — and she’s thrilled,” “Baby No. 3: How she broke the happy news to William” and “Now they’re moving into a new house!”
The announcement was also touted as an “official” one on the cover, even though Buckingham Palace has not released a statement on the matter.
Middleton, 34, is said to be thrilled by the pregnancy, even though it wasn’t planned. “Kate has told her immediate family she is in the early stages of pregnancy,” an insider told Life & Style, according to Gossip Cop. “To be honest, it was an accident and total surprise. They hadn’t wanted a third child for a couple of years, but now that it has happened, she and William are thrilled.”
The royal couple is “already excitedly discussing names for the little prince or princess” and they are already have some ideas in mind. The favorites are Charles or Philip, after William’s dad and grandfather, and Caroline, after Kate’s mother [Carol]. They don’t care if it’s a boy or a girl because they already have one of each,” the insider dished.
But while the idea of another royal baby is exciting for most, it seems to be nothing more than a fabricated story. “Gossip Cop is once again exclusively assured by a royal insider that Middleton is not pregnant. … Just like Middleton wasn’t with child in January, when Life & Style last claimed she was expecting, or in October, when the magazine similarly claimed to have an ‘official announcement,’” the website, which famously debunks celebrity rumors, wrote Wednesday.
