With Prince George set to celebrate his first birthday later this month, there's one present very few people expected him to receive so early in life:
A sibling! Kate Middleton is reportedly pregnant again!
At least if you believe the Duchess' longtime friend, Jessica Hay, who "confirmed" the news to Australia's New Day in an interview this weekend.
The previous sentence tells you all you need to know about how much weight to give this rumor, but we'll let Jessica spill her "evidence" anyway:
According to Hay, the lovely royal couple will make the official announcement in the next few months (or she'll just repeat the same story then).
Jessica, who reported Middleton’s first pregnancy in November 2012 - weeks before the royal confirmation - says she's not alone in knowing this.
“Kate’s inner circle are buzzing with the news that she is expecting,” Hay tells the publication of the latest round of Kate Middleton pregnant rumors.
“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.”
“Kate’s face is fuller like it was when she was first expecting George and she’s been changing her hair, which could be to disguise the fullness."
“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."
The Duchess' oldest friend is certain that they will keep this pregnancy a secret for as long as possible (if that's true, some friend she is for blabbing).
Unlike her first pregnancy, when she came down with severe morning sickness and had to confirm it after being rushed the hospital, Kate is feeling well.
Middleton reportedly is hoping to dial back her royal event schedule and wait for the three-month period to pass before revealing anything to the public.
