Little Prince George may be getting a sibling. Even before news of the royal wedding faded, there was pressure on Kate Middleton to have a royal heir after her marriage to Prince William. Now on July 15, 2014, bets that the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant again is predicted with "an announcement thought to be immenent," says Metro. The news is anticipated by the little prince's first birthday on July 22, 2014. The Sydney Morning Herald, noting the Kate Middleton rumors, said on July 15, 2014, “Tabloids in a tizz over pregnancy.

The media outlets are citing Jessica Hay as a source. Most remember her as the woman who correctly spilled the beans about the first baby two weeks before the royal announcement. It was in December 2012 that you read here that the baby buzz was not going away. The tabloids were talking about parenting and a Christmas baby announcement. The gossip all stemmed from a former school friend of Kate's, Jessica Hay, as Entertainmentwise and Female First initially reported. We began hearing about baby news ever since the royal wedding, but it heated up in December.

The questions and the certainty

Is the Duchess of Cambridge really expecting a second child? Who can forget the New Yorker magazine cover showing the newlyweds hiding under the covers as paparazzi, the Queen and Prince Philip circled the bed in “May 2, 2011: The New Yorker.” As always we await news from the palace. However, the gossip will continue.

Some sources are suggesting that Kate’s sister, Pippa, may have inadvertently spoken out of turn. But thus far, the news is swirling through news and tabloid sources including the National Enquirer, which has been questionable. One thing is certain -- as a woman who seems to embody the grace and charm of Princess Diana, both children will be raised with a loving, hands-on approach to parenting.
