Should William & Kate Start Trying For A Baby Right Away? A Fertility Expert Weighs In!

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!

Aw yes, of course. I want them to have a child like right now :D But they got married only a short while ago, so I definitely don’t think I’m going to hear news of Kate being pregnant in 2011.

2012 though, maybe….

It’s no one’s business but theirs if they have kids now or later.

Yes, they should .. because it is royal tradition to get the bride/princess/duchess pregnant within 9 months .. If she doesn’t .. it’ll break the tradition .. they need to make sure that there is no gap in the line of heirs .. Prince william was born 11 months after Lady Diana and Prince Charles’ wedding ..

i say they have got plenty of time to have kids! Let them enjoy the married life for a bit! And I am pretty sure Kate had a rigorous workout schedule to fit into that wedding dress. Let her enjoy her body while she has it!A

Kate is too skinny? What a load of rubbish! She is hot! If I was William, you bet we’d be trying for babies! She is smoking hot.

Ha ha Ros reckons Kates bone structure reminds her of a young Camillas. Ha ha you should go to specsavers love. Can’t believe Sarah commenting on Kates bust size. Get a life. Would you prefer her to have an unnatural hollywood silicone chest? Also Kate is slender & not “way too skinny”. Are you jealous? Keep eating your big macs and fries love and leave our Kate alone.
They will have a baby in their on time. Leave them alone. Not everyone is in a huge rush to get stretch marks everywhere.

I hope she survives with this royal family, she has a beautiful eyes and seems very nice person. I´m afraid to say but I don´t like her dress, it shows how thin and how flat chested she really is. Her chin bone structure reminds me of young Camilla, Prince Charles former mistress turned wife. There are only two royal wedding dresses that I like so far. The wedding dress of Princess Mary of Denmark and Princess Leticia of Spain.

I’m a new mother and I highly recommend having children. My hips are bigger…my breasts are bigger. I’m loving it! I feel like more of a woman now. It definitely makes me feel so much sexier than ever before.

Bonnie? What is wrong with you?

When they choose to have a child that is their decision.

Who are you to contact a fertility specialist?
