The Royal Baby Is Due in April! Here’s What Kate Can Expect in Her Second Trimester

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Looks like Kate Middleton is just about out of the woods.

The Duchess of Cambridge — whose second pregnancy was confirmed by the Palace rather early, due to the condition known as hyperemesis gravid arum (or acute morning sickness) — has just emerged from her first trimester. The royal baby is due in April!

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in April 2015,” the Palace announced in a statement. “The Duchess of Cambridge continues to be affected by hyperemesis gravidarum, but her condition is steadily improving.”

As she glides into her second trimester, the princess mama-to-be has a lot to look forward to. First, it’s likely her morning sickness will, as the Palace noted, begin to subside.

Second, she’ll likely start to show, and her noticeable bump will allow strangers to offer her subway seats, or to cut in bathroom lines. Oops, sorry! I was thinking of mere mortals in their second trimester.

Beyond that, Kate will be in that sweet spot between first-trimester uncertainty (it’s the most common time for pregnancies to end in miscarriage) and nausea, and third trimester physical discomfort and limited mobility. She’ll likely be comfortable enough to move around and travel (in fact, she’s resuming her engagements, including the Singapore Prime Minister’s state visit tomorrow). So how about a royal babymoon with Will?

Overall, you might call the second trimester the best part of pregnancy — a time many moms-to-be are most able to enjoy carrying their babies. So here’s to you in your second trimester, Kate! We can’t wait to meet baby number two this sping.

Celebrity Pregnancies: Who’s Due Next?

Monday, September 29th, 2014

Now that Snooki and Chelsea Clinton have had their babies, you may be wondering what to do with those precious moments of your day spent scrolling the tabs for celebrity baby bump news. Fear not! We bring you a digest of who’s yet to deliver, and when to expect their bundles of joy.

Mila Kunis: Ashton Kutcher’s future wife may be next—she’s due any day! (Just remember it’s Mila herself who’s pregnant, and not her fiance—or face her wrath!) Of course, she’s still out doing tons of yoga.

Kelly Rowland: Speaking of prenatal yoga fans, this former Destiny’s Child star may be due around the end of the year, given she announced her pregnancy in May—when she wasn’t even remotely showing.

Alicia Keys: Just looking at the the size of her bump, which she splashed nude across Instagram for a good cause, the singer looks to be a few months from dropping her latest release. In fact, she told the AP she’s expecting her second child with hubby Swizz Beatz in December—the same time of year she often chooses to release her albums!

Kourtney Kardashian: Also probably delivering in December is this Keeping Up With the Kardashians star. She’s expecting her third child with boyfriend Scott Disick.

Vanessa Lachey: Social media also delivered the announcement of this star’s pregnancy, on her wedding anniversary on July 15. She’s expecting her second child with husband Nick Lachey.

Zoe Saldana: Although this mama-to-be has kept mostly mum on her pregnancy even while her bump continues to grow, it’s growing alright. How big will it get before she pops? There’s no telling—as the star is rumored to be expecting twins!

Jill Duggar: The 19 Kids and Counting star didn’t waste any time getting pregnant after saying “I do:” She wed on June 21, and announced her pregnancy on August 20, before clearing that first-trimester hurdle.

Carrie Underwood: Among the newest stars to announce a pregnancy, this country crooner shared the news with her fans on social media on Labor Day. (Get it?)

Kate Middleton: The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting her second child with Prince William. As with Kate’s first pregnancy, the palace was forced to make the announcement early, given the royal is suffering from acute morning sickness.

Royal Baby News: Kate Middleton Is Pregnant!

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Prince William and Kate MiddletonStop the world: Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting again! The pregnancy—probably the second-most anticipated ever (after her first, of course)—was confirmed this morning by an official palace announcement.

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.

As with her first pregnancy, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Her Royal Highness will no longer accompany The Duke of Cambridge on their planned engagement in Oxford today. The Duchess of Cambridge is being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace.

Poor Kate! The Duchess’ awful morning sickness with Prince George was well-documented, and it’s a huge bummer for her that it’s back again. (Pregnancy symptoms can be different with second pregnancies, after all.)

No word on when Prince George will officially become a big brother, but according to People.com, Kate is “believed to be fewer than three months pregnant.”

We hope Kate feels better soon, and are so excited that Prince George is going to be a big brother! Congrats to the Royal family!

Is She or Isn’t She?! Rating the Celebrity Pregnancy Rumors

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Another day, another piece of celebrity pregnancy gossip dominating the Web and the weeklies. But with so many high-profile ladies rumored to be pregnant right now, we figured it was time to take an educated stab at what baby bump news holds water (ahem, so to speak), and what’s just boilerplate tabloid fodder.

Eva Mendes: Probably true!

The Internet caught fire today with news that 40-year-old Eva Mendes is pregnant—and seven months along!—with her first child, fathered by Ryan Gosling. Hey girl: Could it really be?! It’s certainly a possibility, given that the couple has been dating for several years—if in an on-again, off-again way. And OK! reports that Ryan always wanted kids to fill a hole that came from growing up without a dad of his own. All we know is this kid could be among the world’s most gorgeous celebrity offspring if the rumors are to be believed.

Zoe Saldana: Probably True!

Oh, we’d bet money that this one is real. The star’s much-lauded slim physique is clearly showing signs of a baby on board, for instance during this grocery outing in L.A.—where it’s much too warm at this point in the summer to conceal a bump with a chunky sweater! Beyond that, she’s had nothing but glowing, magical words to describe new husband Marco Perego in the media (and his whopping arm tattoo of her visage is an unmissable sign of his devotion)—and we’re totally buying it.

Kate Middleton: Probably false!

Rumors have been swirling that Kate Middleton is not only pregnant with royal baby no. 2—but no. 3 as well! Nevertheless, not only are we not buying the twins rumor, but we don’t think she’s expecting at all. First of all, Kate is one of those celebrities (like Beyonce and Jennifer Aniston) who is always pregnant, according to baseless media reports. She’s too easy a target. Secondly, recall her first pregnancy? Yeah, the palace had to announce it much earlier than would have been ideal, because her symptoms were so acute that she was hospitalized. Every pregnancy is different, of course, but it seems unlikely she’d be going completely about her business undaunted if she were with child(ren) this time. It does seem likely, though, that they’re trying now, just as George gets ready to celebrate his big first birthday later this month.

Lea Michele: Definitely false!

“Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant. #babyboy.” So read a tweet posted to actress Lea Michele’s Twitter account on Friday. So must be true, right? Not so fast. Turns out the star’s account was hacked—and it’s totally false! She’s definitively not pregnant, but she very much took the whole thing in stride. She tweeted, “I was HACKED! Guess @chriscolfer and I should have known better then to make our passwords the names of our cats:)”

Prince William: Kate Middleton Pregnancy Rumors Are…

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

False—for now! Rumors have been circulating the internet that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting royal twins, making Prince George a big brother (yes, despite Kate’s completely flat stomach). But according to Prince William, George will have to wait for siblings to play hide ‘n’ seek with around Buckingham Palace.

While attending a St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Aldershot, England, the Prince confirmed “One [child] is enough at the moment.” But didn’t rule out future kids. “Maybe one day,” he said.  Just not now!

I’m not sure why people get in such a hurry for new moms to turn around and have a second right away.  It’s as if you’re not even allowed to enjoy the time you have with your baby. Literally days after I had my son Logan, people started asking, “So when are you going to make Logan a big brother?” At that point, I was still sleep deprived and placing diapers on backwards. (Oops!) The last thing on my mind was when was I going to have another one!

But to each her own! Kudos to multitasking mommies like Jessica Simpson and Drew Barrymore. Jessica’s daughter, Max, is 14 months older than baby bro Ace, and Drew told me daughter, Olive, will be 19 months old, when her second daughter is born. Some moms would much rather have kids close in age, so they can get the diaper duty over with, and have kids who can grow up to be close friends and schoolmates.

TELL US: What do you think is the ideal birth spacing?
