Kate Middleton

Long before the world knew The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, was pregnant -- in fact, long before even most of the Royal Family knew -- her beautician had a clue. A major clue. A clue so damn she's gotta be preggo that I'm surprise the beautician didn't sell her scoop for one beeellyun dollars. There's a few things that a lot of women stop as soon as they find out they're with child. Drinking alcohol. Smoking. But how could a beautician know? The naturally brunette Kate doesn't dye her hair. But she does get a little work done -- a little beauty prep that I think most of us will be shocked to find out she gets.

Kate apparently gets spray tanned on a regular basis. I mean, who knew? Kate has that typically British peaches and cream complexion. But reportedly the peaches part is spray tan. "Kate usually likes just enough to give herself a little glow before a public appearance," a source told The Daily Mail.

But this time she didn't need the fake glow -- cause she had that whole fetus glow thing goin' on. And way back in October, she began cancelling her regular spray tan sessions with a woman who comes to Kensington Palace. (You didn't think Kate went out to Tans R Us, didya?)

Apparently pregnant women in the first trimester aren't supposed to get spray tans. Add that to the list along with not eating sushi or brie, not drinking wine, and not doing anything else that's remotely fun! (Hey, I bet Tanning Mom didn't give up her sessions.)

I can't imagine how difficult it must have been to keep this one secret. Imagine knowing -- or at least highly suspecting -- that the Duchess is pregnant, and you're like one of probably only three or four people to know -- and keeping your lips zipped about it.

I guess the tanning lady wanted to keep her job.

What did you give up when you were pregnant? What did you refuse to give up?
