Kate Middleton was photographed with what appears like a baby bump amid pregnancy rumors.

Royal fans are eager to hear another pregnancy announcement from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. For weeks, there have been rumors suggesting that Prince William and Middleton are already expecting their fourth baby, but they are just not ready to announce it.

New Idea shared snaps of Middleton cradling Prince Luis. In the pictures, the Duchess of Cambridge appears to be sporting a very small baby bump.

Weeks ago, the same publication reported that Middleton is indeed pregnant. The duchess has been trying for a fourth child and “there’s talk she already be expecting.”

“And all signs suggest that an official announcement from Kensington Palace is imminent,” the report read.

Royal commentator Phil Dampier is also convinced that Middleton is likely to be pregnant. According to him, he initially thought Middleton wanted to have three children because she comes from a family of three siblings, but he is now convinced that the duchess will be delighted to have four.

Dampier added that Middleton is a “wonderful mother.” He believes that Middleton would love for Prince Louis to have a little sister similar to his age just like Prince George with Princess Charlotte.

An insider also told OK! Magazine that Prince William and Middleton are having another girl. The royal couple have reportedly determined their fourth baby’s gender.

“It’s a girl. With their first three children, Kate and Wills wanted it to be a surprise but this time they thought it would be fun to enjoy the planning process… so they decided to buck tradition and learn the sex,” the source said.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge aren’t ready to make an official announcement yet. However, sources claim they have already shared the news with their friends and family.

The Queen was reportedly “thrilled” because she, herself, has four children. Prince William and Middleton having another baby means “history is repeating itself.” Meanwhile, the Duke of Cambridge “has been going out of his way to make sure Kate gets everything she wants.”

Middleton had a difficult time in all of her previous three pregnancies. The insider said that this time around, the duchess is feeling better and her cravings have changed. She reportedly can’t get enough of “spicy foods.“
