8 Signs Kate Middleton Is Having a Boy

Hot List 12

blue bootiesOMG! Could it really be true? After hearing reports that Kate Middleton bought a blue stroller for her baby (a Bugaboo, to be exact), there is new speculation that she and Prince William may be expecting a son -- as in a little prince, as in a future king!

I know, I know, up until this point, the general consensus seems to have been that Kate is expecting a baby girl. But come on -- why on earth would she purchase a stroller in a gender specific shade like blue if she isn't pregnant with a boy? (If she did actually buy the thing, of course. There's a chance it's nothing but a rumor.)

Considering what a traditional gal she is, it does seem highly unlikely for her to buy something blue for a baby girl. (Then again, stranger things have happened.)

But there may be a few other clues that might indicate a baby boy is on board.

  1. She's carrying in front -- Yep, Kate's "all-baby" as people like to say. Her bump sticks straight out in the front instead of being more spread out, which old wives' tales say is a sign of a boy.
  2. She's still gorgeous -- Supposedly girls steal your beauty while you're pregnant, but Kate's just as perfect as ever.
  3. She wants a boy -- Kate said back in March that she'd like to have a son. Maybe she already had a gut feeling about the baby's sex -- or maybe she knows what she's having?
  4. She's worn blue -- Ok, somehow I'm guessing her maternity fashion choices have nothing to do with the sex of her baby, but then again, wearing blue could be a subtle hint?
  5. Astrology -- According to the ancient Chinese birth charts, Kate is expecting a boy since she likely conceived in October, when she was 30 years old.
  6. Shiny hair and perfect skin -- Yep, you guessed it. Both of those things are apparently typical of boy pregnancies. 
  7. Bump shape -- Kate's bump is shaped just like a basketball, yet another indicator of a baby boy in the oven.

And if she is having a boy, odds are good his name will be Philip, which William supposedly already picked out. Aww. So cute.

(Good thing we only have a few more months to go before the suspense is over.)

Do you think Kate is having a baby boy or baby girl?

All those tihngs pointed a a girl for me - and the "bump" shape has been true with both my prenancy's and I'm having my second girl in about a month.  If I had to guess my looking I'd say girl - and the gender predictors were all wrong about me too.  They said boy and it's a girl so... Regardless I'm so excited for William and Kate and hope all is going well.

My stomach was only in the front and basketball shaped with my girl and i was an all over blob with my son. There wives tales are backwards for me.

And maybe she is wearing blue because she likes the color and it looks good on her.

Well she's not carrying the baby low. I remember when Reese Witherspoon was pregnant with her son her belly was LOW I mean goodness! And my mom was the same way she had her belly low too. Kate's belly isn't low it seems set in the middle not really high but not low. It's hard to tell but she's still growing when she starts back up again with charity work we'll have more of a clue. I think she wants to surprise us with the news. I hope it's a girl. She would have made BIG history! The first girl to change history.

I was a wide blob with my son and all belly with my daughter; apparently you couldn't tell I was pregnant from the back but side on I looked like I was having a whole litter.

all the things they just said indicates a girl.. I'm 7 months pregnant with a GIRL... I'm all belly Its shaped just like a basketball. when your prego with a boy you are more wide not narrow like you are with a girl. I know because I have a son... sooooo all these are wrong LOL

The majority of this is exactly that, an old wives tail. With my son I carried in back and the weight went everywhere. I looked gross. Not pretty or anything. 
This time I'm pregnant with a girl and Im all belly. The weight is all in my belly. It's shaped like a basketball and I look like I did pre-pregnancy (with the exception of a few blemishes).
But I DO believe the astrology part. When I checked with my son, it guess acurrately and same with my daughter.

When I had my little girl, I was all baby. I blew up fast & I was huge... You could barely tell I was pregnant with my little boy. I wasn't really showing until about 30 weeks along. & I didn't get very big at all.
