5 Signs Kate Middleton Is Officially a Mom

Love It! 9

kate middletonIt's been just a few, short months now, but I bet Kate Middleton is definitely feeling it: She's officially a mom. Of course she's been a mom all along, but it's an adjustment for everyone. Even for her. Now, though, the Duchess is showing all the signs of motherhood -- and we think they suit her well. In fact, it's getting harder and harder to remember her before she became a mom. Here are 5 of our favorite ways Kate Middleton shows she's got this mom thing down.

1. She's showing her greys. It's not just that motherhood ages you quickly -- we think it can keep you young. It's that Kate's busier now, and her priorities have shifted. She'll still keep up her appearance, but now that she's got a baby, grooming has to take a couple steps down. Lucky for her she's beautiful no matter what. In fact, we think those greys make her even more beautiful because they show she's living a full, busy life.

2. She went shopping in jeans and sneakers. Kate knows how to rock a casual shopping look, but we love that she knows how to take it down a notch or two. She looks ready for action on this shopping day, as down-to-earth as any busy mom.  

3. She sported a "mummy tummy." Do we even need to say it again? Of course we do! We loved the way she proudly displayed her "mummy tummy" right after giving birth to baby George. Why hide it? It should be a point of pride.

4. She's made it a point to be very hands-on from the beginning. Kate's uncle, Gary Goldsmith, said she and Prince William would be "very involved" in everything George does, and it seems like so far they have been. And it doesn't sound like Will and Kate have been in a hurry to hire a nanny, though they have been thoughtful about it: It's rumored that they wanted to hire Prince William's former nanny.

5. Kate has been feathering her nest. She's still decorating Kensington Palace, working with a decorator on everything from furniture to pain colors, with an eye for creams and earth tones. Sounds like it'll be a deliciously cozy and child-friendly environment for her growing family.

Everything she does is calculated. One of the most nauseating and immature was making sure everyone saw her cruddy stomach. She has a bizarre belly button too, looked like it had white gunk in it. Not a very "royal" sort of behavior.

You ought to visit her photos on Google Images or on the "kate middleton chat" site.

Did the part where she excreted a humanoid parasite NOT qualify her for the title?? 'Cause here I thought that was the primary requirement...

So she wasn't human before? I'm sure she went shopping on occasion in jeans and sneakers and im sure she missed a color appt here and there.....

...showing her greys? How old is she again?!

Abby Gould

she and William are both 31. although age really has little to do with when greys start. some people get them in their twenties

TracyMcbride, not everyone changes their name after they get married.

I really don't care for point number two. It seems kind of degrading to uh average moms?
