ANOTHER royal baby is on the way – Kate Middleton confirmed pregnant with baby number 3!

HUGE CONGRATULATIONS are in order for our fave young royal family, as Kensington Palace has confirmed that Kate Middleton is pregnant with baby number three!

The happy news, that was released in a statement last night, also revealed that Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the British Royal Family are “delighted.”

Another royal baby on the way

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child,” read the statement from Kensington Palace.

“The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace. The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.”

Kate and Wills are already parents to George, four, and Charlotte, two, and their new arrival is expecting to be due in April or May next year. This means the couple will have three kids under five. (Yes we know, they’re very BRAVE!!)

Speculation has been swirling for some time that Kate, 35, has had a bun in the oven, with sources saying she was keen to add to their brood.

And while this is fabulous news, unfortunately poor Kate is said to be suffering with severe pregnancy sickness – known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum – which she experienced during her previous two pregnancies.

The new royal baby will be fifth-in-line to the British royal throne, following Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

BIG congrats, guys! We couldn’t be more thrilled that Kate and Will are expanding their family from four to five. Such wonderful news.
