Kate Middleton's Hair Almost Steals the Spotlight From Baby in Royal Family Portrait (PHOTO)

OMG 8

Prince William Kate Middleton

Well, I guess we really shouldn't be all that surprised -- but have you seen just how perfect Kate Middleton looks in Prince George's official baby photos?

She's absolutely glowing. Her complexion is flawless. She doesn't have one hair out of place. Her dress is simply stunning. And considering her father was the one who took the pictures, it's not like she had a whole team of people there to make her look camera ready (other than a hairdresser), which makes her post-baby appearance even more enviable. And speaking of her hair -- doesn't it have more shine and volume than ever? It always looks good, but man, it's ridiculously gorgeous in this pic.

But before we delve even further into how much better she looks than your average new mom, it's important to point out that the dress she's wearing in the pics is a maternity frock, believe it or not.

It's made by Seraphine and retails for $79, which is actually pretty inexpensive considering she's royalty and all. But even though the dress is made to fit a woman's post-pregnancy body, it appears as though Kate has shed most, if not all of her baby weight in a few short weeks.

(Excuse me while I pause to go get a brownie to console myself with before continuing on with this post.)

Again, it's really not surprising that Kate is already thin again, since she didn't really gain a lot of weight during her pregnancy. But still -- it's hard not to be just a little bit jealous, as most of us spend months and months trying to get back to our pre-baby size to no avail.

Ok, back to the glow she has going on. Isn't there something so ... motherly about Kate in the new photos? She just looks so calm, relaxed, and blissfully happy -- which makes her even more beautiful than she already is. (And if George isn't sleeping through the night, you'd never guess. Kate looks well rested, don't you think?) Being a mom certainly agrees with her, and seeing her in that role makes us love her even more.

What do you think of Kate's post-baby look?
