Kate Middleton is reportedly pregnant again, and her rapidly expanding royal family has Prince William ready to quit his work as an ambulance pilot to take on full-time daddy duties.
While Duchess Kate has not officially announced anything regarding a pregnancy, there are mounting reports that she’s expecting again. And in light of the news, Prince William is reportedly planning to become a stay-at-home father.
Celeb Dirty Laundry reported:
“Prince William has an overwhelming desire to be home with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and any other Royal baby that comes along? Can you imagine the future King making breakfast for the wee ones?
“Another sign that Prince William is getting ready to be the at home parent? At a reception hosted by the Welsh Rugby Charitable Fund on Friday, February 26 Prince William let guests know just how much he enjoys being a Royal daddy HELLO! magazine reported.”
There have been a number of reports over the last several weeks claiming that Kate Middleton is pregnant. A report last week from OK! Magazine (via Celeb Dirty Laundry) claimed that Duchess Kate was about 12 weeks along, and early on texted Prince William with a surprise from an early ultrasound — that she’s having twins.
The report added that Kate Middleton and Prince William are now looking for a bigger place to hold their rapidly expanding family.
“In addition to the baby news, which apparently Buckingham Palace has confirmed, will be moving out of Kensington Palace and giving it a go as a family of six. No nannies, no hired help at all a source told OK! recently. Anmer Hall will be the new base of operations, the Cambridge’s permanent home.”
There had been other signs pointing to another royal pregnancy. Hello! Magazine reported a few weeks ago that Kate and William skipped out on an annual family vacation, one they had always attended. While some believe that Kate was just trying to keep the family grounded while Prince George started classes at Westacre Montessori School, others believed that Kate’s pregnancy is what caused them to skip out.
“Carole and Michael Middleton arrived in the Caribbean last week for the start of their annual holiday on the island of Mustique. Royal watchers anticipated that they would soon be joined by Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, who traditionally attend the getaway to celebrate Carole’s birthday on 31 January. But this year, William and his wife are noticeably absent from the sunshine holiday.”
Another report from December claimed that Kate Middleton made her pregnancy a Christmas surprise for family members. Life & Style quoted a source saying the family was more than a bit surprised to hear the news.
“Kate and William have always wanted to have a large family,” the source stated. “But they didn’t think they would be expecting baby No. 3 quite so soon.”
There have been no other major signs that Kate Middleton could be pregnant, however. With her first two pregnancies she suffered a debilitating condition known as hyperemesis gravidarum, commonly known as extreme morning sickness. This condition causes nearly constant nausea and frequent vomiting, and even led Duchess Kate to a brief hospital stay to treat dehydration that resulted from it.
Kate has yet to show physical signs of pregnancy either, making public appearances with no indication of a baby bump.

While rumors that Kate Middleton is pregnant have often surfaced over the past few years — and more often than not been wrong — there seems to be some growing evidence that this could be the real deal. The reports have come from a number of different celebrity news outlets, and each story seems to follow the same timeline that would make Duchess Kate just entering her second trimester now.
