Prince William Is Giving Kate Middleton's Baby Bump the Kind of Attention Every Dad Should

Awww! 14

baby bumpOMG. Just when we thought it was impossible to love him any more than we already do, rumors about Prince William talking and singing to Kate Middleton's baby bump have surfaced, making us swoon yet again.

According to a source who talked to Now magazine, Wills has been singing lullabies to his unborn baby, along with telling his royal bun in the oven "some of the old stories his mother Princess Diana used to make up for him and Harry when they were kids."

(Aww. So sweet and adorable yet so sad at the same time. Sniffle.)

Supposedly he heard that it's never too early to chat with your baby in the womb, so he's made talking and/or singing to Kate's bump a "daily ritual."

Ok, who else is absolutely loving the thought of Prince William with his head on Kate's belly talking and bonding with his baby-to-be? And who else thinks this is something all expectant fathers should do?

Research shows that a baby does hear his mother's voice in utero because it is amplified by her body. And even though it's believed that the baby may not be able to hear his father's voice, moms have reported their babies being responsive when hearing their dads speak, so who knows? (It can't hurt, right?)

Regardless of whether or not the baby can actually hear his dad's voice, getting into the habit of talking to his future child is incredibly beneficial as far as bonding with the baby goes. It helps the father feel close to the child and establishes a connection from early on -- and it's such a great way to make him feel more a part of the pregnancy.

When I was pregnant, my husband always leaned down and "said hello" to our unborn son at least once or twice a day, and it was definitely something that was special for both of us. It was just as important to me for our baby to "hear" his voice as it was for him, and if nothing else, it bonded us as a family unit before our son even arrived. Having him talk to our baby made us feel like a family of three instead of a dad-to-be and a pregnant gal -- and I'm sure Prince William and Kate are feeling the same way.

If the story about him singing and talking to the baby is true, of course. (But let's just pretend it is. It's way too cute to think otherwise.)

Does your husband talk to your baby bump?

We have 4 kids. And my husband pretty much ignored the fact that I was pregnant until I went in to labor. There was no talking too baby, or him getting exited. I wish her would have. It's sweet.

My hubby does... He puts his head on my bump; talks to baby (sometimes sings lol)... first thing in the morning and before we go to sleep, he has his hand on my belly and talks about the baby.  It is sweet... fortunately he has a good balance and doesn't just see me as an incubator lol.   He is still awaiting being able to feel baby's movements... I know that will be very exciting for him!

This is our first, and my husband is going to be 39 - before he met me, he didn't think he'd ever have kids. And our pregnancy was such a surprise; but he has accepted everything and taken to it all very well (probably better than I have lol). 

No, he isn't Mr. Perfect... but he is a great guy and both our baby boy and I are lucky to have him.

yep, my husband talked to all of our children in utero, and has gone on to be a wonderful father. I'm very blessed.

our daughter used to "kick"  her dad in the back if I snuggled up behind him at night lol and yes he would talk to her too. She seemed very responsive to him.

My son's father talked to our son in-utero and immediately after he was born he looked at the baby and said "hello and it's so nice to finally meet you!" I kid you not my son looked at his daddy with the most endearing look as if to say "I know you"...It was the sweetest and most heartwarming thing I have ever seen :)

My husband used to do that! My son has been a momma's boy since the day he was conceived, though. If If he was kicking really hard and I asked my husband to put his hand on my belly to feel, he would immediately stop and lay still. But he would always turn flip flops when he heard daddy's voice for the first time of the day (usually when he came home from work). And now... Well, he's still pretty much a momma's boy. His daddy is his biggest play mate, though, and nobody makes that little one laugh like his daddy does! I love watching them get down on the living room floor and "wrestle."
