Kate Middleton is back on the pregnancy-watch radar after she wore an empire-waist dress while her inner circle reportedly buzzes about baby news.
It looks like baby No. 2 could be headed our way less than a year after the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William welcomed their first child, Prince George.
Sure, Middleton‘s been caught wearing some looser-fitting outfits that have curiosities piqued, but what really got the world buzzing this morning is confirmation from someone within the royal couple’s inner circle.
Jessica Hay — Middleton’s former best friend from boarding school — is saying the reports that Middleton is pregnant again are true. Hay is responsible for verifying the news about Kate’s first pregnancy when the story first broke so all signs are pointing a thumbs-up for the baby news.
“Kate’s inner circle are buzzing with the news that she is pregnant,” Hay dished to Australia’s New Day. “I’ve heard it from several different friends of theirs now, and they’re saying that they think there’s going to be an official announcement in weeks.”
Hay also pointed to Middleton’s appearance recently. She says the Duchess is showing signs of rosy cheeks and a fuller face. She has also noticed Kate has changed her hair and is letting some of her grays show. We’re not sure how the change in hair confirms pregnancy, but Hay seems to think all signs point to a bun in the oven.
The royal couple is reportedly waiting to share the news until Middleton is past the three-month mark.
Prince George will celebrate his first birthday on July 22, which is sure to keep Middleton busy in the next couple of weeks. Perhaps one of his presents will be the news of a little royal sibling on the way.
According to the Daily Star, a royal spokesperson declined to comment on the rumors.
