Kate Middleton and Prince William are already trying to get pregnant with a second baby after welcoming son Prince George just months ago in July.
The Duke and Duchess have gushed over their love of parenthood, and the mom and dad to the royal baby already want to expand their family with a second baby. "William and Kate are very keen to start trying for baby No. 2," an insider told Life & Style. "They'd be thrilled if Kate were pregnant by Christmas."
In fact, the timing of a little brother or sister for the heir to the throne couldn't be more perfect given the fact that they will be joined by family and friends during the holiday. "William and Kate will be splitting their time during the holidays with Kate's family and the queen in Sandringham House in Norfolk," a source revealed, "so it would be the perfect moment for an announcement."
Prince William and Middleton have made no secret about wanting another baby, and a palace expert said their love of family comes from their own childhood experiences. "Royal or not, all couples want to mirror the special bonds they had with their own siblings," the insider said. "William, who has one younger brother, has said in the past that he definitely wants two children, while Kate, who has a younger sister and a younger brother, has told friends that she hopes to have at least three."
Both the Duke and Duchess have maintained close relationships with their respective siblings through the years, and hope that Prince George will have the same opportunity as well. "They know this time will fly by, and they figure they might as well have another baby next year so they can deal with it all at the same time."
While Middleton and William have kept the royal baby out of the spotlight since introducing him to the world via an amateur family photo, the new mom did reveal who baby George resembles. "Like most babies, he's got a mix of both of us," Middleton said. "As new parents know, you're only too happy to show off your new child and, you know, proclaim that he is the best looking or the best everything," William added.
