Royal fans are celebrating, following a sensational report out of the US this morning that Duchess Catherine is expecting twins – and they babies are reported to be identical girls.
According to a cover story in US magazine OK!, ‘Kate and Wills are over the moon, but a household of four children under the age of five is going to be a lot to juggle.’
The publication asserts that the news has leaked from Kensington Palace as an excited Kate has found it hard to keep the startling revelation to herself.
‘She had an inkling it might be twins because she’s gaining more weight this time than she did during her two previous pregnancies,’ says the magazine’s source – who adds that her suspicions were dramatically confirmed during routine tests.
‘She normally can’t keep weight on during her pregnancies, but this time she’s been joking that she feels like a bloated sausage! When she found out she was carrying twins, it all made sense.
‘She couldn’t wait to tell William,’ the source further tells the publication. ‘They have always said they would feel blessed to even have one more child – to get two at once is a dream!’
And given how much Kate has suffered with severe morning sickness during her pregnancies, she is reported to be thrilled that a multiple birth means she won’t have to go through the process again.
‘She’s relieved she won’t have to suffer again for another baby,’ the publication’s source reported.
Kensington Palace has yet to comment on the US report.
