A close friend of Duchess Kate Middleton, Jessica Hay, has revealed that Kate and her hubby, Prince William, will soon announce that they are expecting a baby.

“They’re planning to make an official announcement in December,” Hay reveals.

“I have this on the highest authority,” she says, totally convincing us, “and it’s not to be taken lightly. It’s going to be wonderful, happy news when it’s announced.”

Jessica previously told an Australian tabloid about the pregnant Kate Middleton.


Hay attended the exclusive Marlborough school with the would-be queen at the age of 14 and was a guest at the couple’s royal wedding reception last year.

She says that with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics now over, Kate Middleton, 30, “was told to put on weight by the palace in May.”

Kate was told that “2013 would be the year they have a baby … the royal family have been talking about William and Catherine having children for some time.”

Jessica says the royal couple’s social circle is “all abuzz” over the forthcoming baby announcement and the two could not be more ready to have a little one.

“William is much like Diana and will definitely be a hands-on dad and not rely heavily on nannies to raise his and Catherine’s children,” she tells Life & Style.

“Kate and William both try to remain as normal as possible in their private lives, and that of course is only going to continue when they have children.”

Good to know, Jessica Hay. Good to know. What would we do without you??
