While most celeb-obsessed eyes are still nursing real or vicarious Golden Globes-related hangovers, we thought we’d bring you a bit of news from the U.K., namely, that St. James Palace has decided to reveal Kate Middleton’s due date. “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in July,” said a statement released to Us Weekly.
This announcement confirms two things for us: 1) She’s not having twins, as some had speculated due to the prevalence of extreme morning sickness among women carrying multiples. And 2) her hospitalization forced the royals to reveal her pregnancy about a month before they ideally would have liked to. If she’s due in July, she was very early into her first month or two of pregnancy when they made the announcement.
But the great news is that Kate is doing much better these days. “The Duchess’s condition continues to improve since her stay in hospital last month,” the royal statement says. And now we can all begin to buy those baby gifts for the happy couple. We just hope they don’t invite these guys to the shower.
