An insider close to Kate Middleton and Prince William has revealed that she's about 11 weeks along in her third pregnancy. That means she's due sometime next spring, in late March or early April. Another spring baby is joining the brood -- Princess Charlotte will be turning 3 on May 2, 2018. Prince George was a summer baby, and will turn 5 on July 22, 2018.

Anyway, the duke and duchess had wanted to keep the pregnancy a secret for a couple more weeks, but ended up spilling the beans because she gets so horrifically sick during her pregnancies. Kate has suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum all three times, which is a severe form of morning sickness that requires medical intervention.

"They've known for a while and didn't particularly want to announce it before the 12-week mark, but due to having to cancel an engagement on Monday, they thought it was best to be honest about the situation," the source told Us Weekly. "The same thing happened before. She suffers terribly in these early weeks, but she has a great medical team and a fantastic support system."

We are in awe of Kate deciding to have a third kiddo, considering what she has to go through to bring a baby into the world. According the insider, this little one was completely planned, as "Will and Kate have wanted a third since the end of last year." They added, "Everyone is ecstatic for them."

Congrats again to Will, Kate, George, and Charlotte. We couldn't be happier for the family, and wish Kate a happy, healthy, not too terribly dreadfully ill nine months!
