From the Queen’s Jubilee to the 2012 Olympics, Duchess Kate and Prince William have had a hectic year. But the royal couple is ready to start a family and a new report says Kate hopes to make the announcement around Christmas!
It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for since the April 2011 Royal Wedding — a royal pregnancy! All the talk about the couple’s friends starting families must have gotten to Duchess Kate and Prince William because they are now ready to start a family! Keep reading for all the insider details!
According to Us Weekly, a source close to the couple says, “They’re excited at the prospect of becoming parents,” and confirms they’re “working on it” — yay!
“In a dream situation, they’d love to be a step closer at Christmas,” the source adds.
Wouldn’t that be the most exciting gift for the holidays?
“They have been on such a high since getting married. It’s time for the next step — Kate is hoping she and William can become parents in 2013,” says the source.
Us Weekly reports that William and Kate have had a plan all along — the first two years were to be focused on work and once everything was settled, it would be safe to start.
We all would love a New Year’s announcement about their highly anticipated first child, but the source adds that if she is pregnant, she will not make an announcement until shortly after her first trimester.
What wonderful timing is this all — Christmas is around the corner and the couple just purchased a new home in London’s Kensington Palace, a four-story, 20-room flat undergoing a $1.5 million renovation, according to Us Weekly.
Just like Will, Kate wants two children, according to a longtime friend of Kate’s, and we are starting to think this new house would be perfect to bring kids into!
The source tells Us Weekly that “a baby is the main reason for the move. They want to bring a child up in a secure environment.”
When it comes to raising their future child, “Kate will let her children have fun and freedom, but she will also make sure they do what is best for them,” says Kate’s friend.
Well, we sure hope this is a VERY merry Christmas for the two of you! We are looking forward to the big announcement…whenever it may be!
