Well? I guess we can go ahead and quit getting excited about another royal baby arriving anytime soon. Supposedly Kensington Palace has shot down rumors that Kate Middleton is pregnant with her second child, which is basically the only confirmation we need that she definitely does not have a bun in the oven.
(I know. Bummer.)
And in addition to insisting Kate is not expecting, wait until you hear what other rumor the Palace spokesperson put to rest.
Remember how Kate's "best friend," Jessica Hay, spilled the beans and said she was pregnant with her second child?
Yeah, well, apparently they have not seen each other or spoken to each other in years, so it sounds like we can't take her word seriously. (If she even started the rumors about Kate in the first place.)

Sigh. I guess that's that. But considering we already had a fairly good idea that Kate is not currently pregnant, why did the Palace feel the need to defend her like this?
One of two things is likely going on here. Either Kate and Prince William don't plan on giving Prince George a sibling any time in the next year, so the Palace figured coming clean on the rumors would shut us all up for a bit. Or ... maybe Kate and Wills are trying for a second baby, but all of the speculation over when said baby will arrive is stressing the two of them out, which might make conceiving even tougher.
Sigh. On one hand, we probably shouldn't pry into their business, as I'm sure they'll be shouting the happy news from the rooftops whenever it does happen. But gah -- sometimes we just can't help ourselves as far as getting caught up in royal baby hoopla goes. The thought of another mini Will or Kate is just way too exciting not to talk about!
When do you think Kate will get pregnant?
