Kate Middleton Birth Details Revealed: How Long Did Her Labor Take?

by at .

Kate Middleton is a champion pregnant person. So much so you're likely to be very jealous after you read about her delivery of royal baby #2 ...

The 33-year-old now-mother-of-two delivered the Princess of Cambridge without an epidural, and in the company of midwives on Saturday, May 2.

The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge went into labor in the early hours of Saturday morning, arriving at London’s St Mary’s Hospital at 6:00 a.m.

Her 8lb., 3oz. daughter was born just two and a half hours later.

A source says the delivery went "remarkably well," and that there were no complications at all. The speed of the delivery "was a surprise to all."

The proud new parents are "both so happy," and rightfully so.

The two ladies who helped were midwife Arona Ahmed and Jacqui Dunkley-Bent, Professor of Midwifery at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.

Kate Middleton bonded with the two midwives during her first birth (the duo helped deliver Prince George in 2013) and enlisted them a second time.

Consultant Guy Thorpe Beeston was also on hand to make sure all went well with the birth, along with his team of doctors, according to reports.

Leaving the hospital less than 12 hours after delivering her daughter, Middleton and her daughter are being monitored by her midwife team at home.

On Sunday, May 3, proud grandmother Carole Middleton and excited aunt Pippa Middleton came over to meet the baby Princess for the first time.

Kensington Palace has had no comment as to whether or not the Duchess of Cambridge's delivery was induced, as she was past her due date.

Either way, we can't wait for more photos ... and royal baby #3. If it's this easy for her (morning sickness aside), why not keep cranking them out?!
