kate middleton red dressPretty much ever since Prince George was born last July, speculation about when we'll hear that a second royal baby is on the way has been flying. One minute Kate is supposedly pregnant with a baby girl, and the next, the rumors are denied, denied, denied! It's hard to know what to believe. But one resource we may want to consider: Bookies who handle bets on these sorts of things! Hey, they actually do have a lot to lose, so maybe that's a reason to think their predictions are accurate.

According to bookmakers, the royal family will welcome a brother or sister for Prince George in ... drumroll please ...

2015!

Considering that Kate may not want to be pregnant for this upcoming royal tour of Australia, and then relax over the summer, and then maybe get back to the business of royal babymaking in the fall, giving birth again next year definitely seems like a fair assessment. And gamblers have even started guessing the name of what they're sure will be a little girl: Bets have been placed for Alice, Charlotte, and Victoria.

Yeesh, I'd like to hear what bookies have to say about the exact month and date! Because you know they're going there. Before Prince George arrived, millions were spent on bets related to his birthdate, even his eye color! Hello magazine reports one company claims it took £1.5 million on royal baby bets alone. Wow. Well, good for those who bank on their educated guesses, but most of us are probably better off just waiting for the official word!

When do you guess Kate and William will welcome a second baby?
