Being the Duke of Cambridge comes with many responsibilities—including keeping the sex of his future child under wraps. Yes, it’s a big deal, and Prince William may have just spilled the details. We have to say, we weren't expecting an impromptu sex reveal this late in the pregnancy!

According to Vanity Fair, William was celebrating a huge win for his favorite soccer team, Aston Villa, who defeated their major rivals Cardiff City when he reportedly told Jack Grealish—the player with the game-winning goal—“I’m going to insist the baby is called Jack.” He quickly followed up with, “…or Jackie.”

Is that a major hint? Only time will tell if William was caught up in the moment and made a simple joke, or if that was a true slip up. Did he quickly cover his tracks with, "...or Jackie," or is he just as in the dark as we are? We have so many questions...

Vanity Fair also reports that the royal couple does not even know the sex of their third child, so again, we can only speculate.

I guess we will have to wait and see, but luckily we won’t be waiting much longer considering the baby is due this month! Oh the royals, we can’t seem to get enough of them, can we?
