Kate Middleton Responds to Pregnancy Rumors With a Telling Gesture (PHOTO)

OMG 8

Kate Middleton and Prince William

The question over whether she's expecting certainly isn't going to go away until the Palace confirms a second heir is on the way, but let's be honest -- it's hard not to get all excited and pumped up by the Kate Middleton pregnancy rumors these days.

Supposedly she and Prince William were trying to conceive while they were on their Royal Tour of New Zealand and Australia, which makes the idea of her having a bun in the oven a lot easier to buy into.

Come on, would you really be all that surprised if she and Wills got down to business on that trip?

But it looks like we're going to have to put our "squees!" on the back burner for the time being, unfortunately.

Get a load of this photo of her and Prince William that was taken in Scotland earlier this week.

Yes, my friends -- the Duchess of Cambridge was caught drinking whiskey, so I'd say odds are good that she's about as un-pregnant as a gal can get.

(Damn.)

For whatever reason, slogging back booze is becoming somewhat of a trend for her as far as shooting down baby rumors goes. Remember back in April when Kate was seen drinking wine in the midst of some major royal baby buzz? I knew she was a clever chick then, but the fact that she upped the ante and switched to the hard stuff makes me love her a little bit more.

Bottoms up, Kate. But we're still hoping you're back on the wagon for a very good reason sometime in the near future.

When do you think Kate will have baby number two?
