Kate Middleton is reportedly pregnant!
The Duchess of Cambridge’s longtime “friend,” Jessica Hay, confirmed to Australia’s “New Day” this weekend that the royal is expecting her second child with The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William.
According to Hay, who famously predicted Middleton’s first pregnancy in November 2012 just weeks before the official announcement, the British royal couple, both 32, will make an official announcement in the coming months.
While the Clarence House has yet to confirm or deny Hay’s statement, the insider claims that those close to the Duchess are already privy to the impending birth.
“Kate’s inner circle is buzzing with the news that she is expecting,” said Hay (via The Hollywood Gossip.) “I’ve heard from several different friends of theirs now that they’re saying that they think there’s going to be an official announcement in weeks.”
According to Hay, Middleton, who welcomed her son Prince George with Prince William last July, has noticeably changed in appearance in recent weeks.
“Kate’s face is fuller like it was when she was first expecting George,” said Hay, who claims Middleton has been “changing her hair” in order to cover up her face’s “fullness,” among other measures to hide the rumored pregnancy. “She has rosy cheeks, she’s letting her greys show again and whenever she’s out in public she goes to great lengths to hold something over her tummy," she added.
Despite her previous bout with hyperemesis gravidarum, an acute form of morning sickness which plagued her during her first trimester with George back in December 2012, Hay reports that Middleton is healthy and well the second time around.
Hay’s announcement comes less than one week after royal correspondent Kate Nicholl confirmed to Vanity Fair that Middleton, who starred on the magazine’s August 2014 cover with Prince George and Prince William, was prepping to try for a second child.
“As for speculation about when Prince George will have a sibling … there are rumors among the couple’s friends that they plan to try this summer,” reads the report.
