Anyone who has been following the fairytale romance of William and Kate knew that, after their amazing wedding, talk would immediately turn to pregnancy rumours. The couple who are currently honeymooning in the Seychelles, have become bookies favourites with Ladbrokes announcing the odds at 7-1 for them to become parents in February 2012. If Kate does not become pregnant within nine months, she will be breaking a two hundred year old tradition. When the couple announced their engagement in November 2010, they discussed having a family. William said, 'I think we'll take it one step at a time. We'll sort of get over the marriage first and then maybe look at kids. But obviously we want a family so we'll have to start thinking about that'.
William, like his mother, is instinctively drawn to babies in his charitable work and when engaging with the public. The couple will most likely be hoping for a boy as their first born. They will be aware of the pressure to produce a male heir. In the past week, rumors have been swirling with one headline reading 'pregnant bride'. Buckingham Palace has brushed aside those rumors as 'absurd' and 'certainly not true' When the pair do decide to have a child, William and Kate will make excellent parents.
