Aww -- she must be getting excited, you guys! Kate Middleton is supposedly making a playlist for her baby's birth containing a bunch of her favorite tunes to help soothe and calm her during her labor and delivery.
Yep, you guessed it. Kate has an iPod (like a regular person!) and she's making sure to pick out songs she loves -- some of which may surprise you. For whatever reason, it's tough to picture the Duchess of Cambridge jamming to the same music all of us non-royal folk listen to on a daily basis. But believe it or not, she has some pretty great taste, and now it's obvious that she's even cooler than we thought.
Ok, I'll cut to the chase. Kate is apparently a fan of Bruno Mars, Calvin Harris, and Of Monsters and Men. Whoa. I always pegged her for a classical gal, but given how modern and mainstream she and Prince William are, I probably should've guessed she'd be into the popular stuff.
And since Kate is planning on having a natural birth, it makes sense that she's trying to do whatever she can to make her labor and delivery less stressful. I guess maybe it could help to listen to music you love during the process -- but something tells me once she's having full-blown contractions, she's not going to give a crap about what's coming from her iPod.

Personally, I didn't use a playlist when I delivered my son, and I'm almost positive it wouldn't have made a difference if I did. If anything, music probably would've distracted and annoyed me even more. If it didn't take the pain away, I had no use for it, but considering how calm of a person Kate is, I guess there's a chance that hearing her favorite tunes could have the opposite effect and make things go a bit smoother.
If nothing else, maybe it will at least help pass the time should she wind up being in labor for hours on end. Or at least it will drown out all the chatter that will likely be filling every single hallway of that hospital until the royal baby finally arrives.
Are you planning on using a playlist during your labor and delivery?
