Kate Middleton is pregnant again, and no, it's not just a tabloid rumor this time.
The beloved Duchess of Cambridge is officially expecting her second child with Price William, a Kensington Palace statement confirmed early Monday:
Prince George, now one year old, is fascinated by butterflies in this adorable new photo released by the royal family. Parents Kate and William look on proudly.
"Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child."
"The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news."
This will be the second child for Prince William and Kate Middleton, both 32, who became parents for the first time when Prince George was born in London July 22, 2013.
As with George, Kate is currently suffering with Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a very acute morning sickness, which hospitalized her early in her first pregnancy.
This time, however, the beautiful royal is being treated at home.
"As with her first pregnancy, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum," said the statement, confirming her condition and public absence.
