Kate Middleton is rumored to be pregnant – not just with one baby but with two.

New Idea claimed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were surprised to learn about Kate Middleton’s fourth pregnancy. Even though there have been rumors that Prince William and Kate still wanted to grow their family, a source told the publication that the royal couple was actually done in the baby-making department.

“But the fertility gods obviously had other ideas! Now they’re praying Kate won’t be stricken with debilitating morning sickness that plagued her other pregnancies and even landed her in hospital,” the source added.

The insider also claimed that the upcoming arrival of Prince William and Kate’s twins is exactly what Queen Elizabeth needs at the moment. Her Majesty’s newest great-grandchildren are giving her hope that the royal family can survive the latest disasters plaguing them.

This isn’t the first time that Kate Middleton has been rumored to be pregnant with twins. Last month, bookmakers Ladbrokes claimed that the odds for the Duchess of Cambridge to give birth next year are at 1/5. And the odds for Prince William’s wife to give birth to twins are at 4/1.

“Punters are seemingly confident Kate is going to give birth next year, and plenty reckon we'll soon be welcoming royal twins into the world,” Alex Apati, Ladbrokes spokesperson, told Express.

And weeks before Ladbrokes made their predictions, OK! magazine claimed that Middleton is pregnant with twin girls. The tabloid went as far as saying that one of the girls will be named after Prince William’s late mother, Princess Diana.

“Kate recently found out that she’s having twins – two girls!” the source said. The mom of three was reportedly delighted and speechless when she found out that she’s pregnant again. Prince William is also excited about the arrival of his babies.

However, since none of these claims have been confirmed by Prince William, Kate and the palace, it would be best to take them with a grain of salt.
