We’ve been on the edge of our seats all day, practically straining to hear the Duchess of Cambridge’s labor screams, as we await news from London on the birth of the new prince or princess. And now, we here at VH1 have huge scoop about the identity of Will and Kate’s baby…
It’s actually J.K. Rowling!
This shocking development came about when Rowling’s cousin’s lawyer’s wife’s lawyer tweeted us about it on Monday morning. Rowling is reportedly livid that her secret has been revealed.
“I had hoped to keep this secret a little longer because being a royal fetus has been such a liberating experience,” the Harry Potter author said in a statement. “It has been wonderful to publish without hype or expectation, and pure pleasure to get feedback under a different name.”
After her identity as The Cuckoo’s Calling author Robert Galbraith was spoiled last week, Rowling was hoping Kate’s womb would at last keep her away from the pressures of public adoration. This turned out to be a massive miscalculation.
“It’s just as well,” a source close to the Duke and Duchess told us. “Jo is going to own the country long before Prince William becomes king anyway.”
Er, just kidding, guys. We’re a little excited over here.
Let’s look at some other royal baby photos while we wait for the new arrival!
