Should the royal newlyweds aim for an heir right away or wait until the hoopla has died down?

Like most couples, newlyweds Prince William and Kate Middleton have babies on the mind. But their kids could someday become royalty! We contacted a leading fertility expert to tell us when the best time would be for William, 28, and Kate, 29, to have a child.

Dr. Joel Batzofin, the medical director of New York Fertililty Services, says the couple is in the clear for whenever they want to have children.

“From a medical standpoint, I don’t think she has anything to worry about for a couple of years,” Dr. Batzofin says. “Reproductive function starts to decline from about age 35, although some studies show earlier decline…but it’s nothing they need to get excited about. Let them enjoy themselves for a few minutes and when it happens, it happens.”

He also said pressure from the media frenzy should not hurt Kate’s ability to have a child.

“I thought she did a beautiful job getting married in front of a couple billion people, looking relaxed and gorgeous,” Dr. Batzofin says. “She’s known this is coming for a long time and knew if she married him she’d live in a bubble. My perception is that she enjoys it and it won’t bother her.”

We can’t wait to see some beautiful royal babies soon!
