Kate Middleton: I can feel it kicking now

The Duchess of Cambridge says the new baby is moving around a lot. Plus, we've got speculations on whether the babe is a boy or a girl.

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, 33, has updated the world on the status of her unborn child. The second royal baby is kicking!

"It's moving all the time," Kate told a local teenager at the brand new Kensington Leisure Centre (which she helped launch earlier today, Monday, January 19). "I can feel it kicking now."

The Duchess, who's six months along (due in April), also shared that she and Prince William don't know the sex of the baby. This, of course, isn't a surprise, since they didn't find out the sex of their first baby, Prince George, before he was born, 17 months ago.

But, our friends at Hello! suspect it's a girl because, they say, the Duchess's "bump looks to be higher and wider than at the same stage of her pregnancy with George two years ago."

"Although no one could say Kate has gained excessive weight," Hello! adds, "observers have noted that she appears slightly fuller in the face and has more rounded hips than her previous pregnancy."


My own mother (she always knows) would agree this means Kate and William are having a girl. Although, if you ask me, the first thing I noticed about Kate when she was carrying Prince George was that her face looked different. I know, I know—leave the woman alone! Hey, though, she signed up for this gig, knowing well that she'd be in one of the brightest spotlights in the world. And she's definitely shining. Love!

So, what do you think? Boy or girl?

Finally, wondering about that gorgeous baby blue maternity coat? It's cashmere-blend design created by Seraphine, retailing for around $295. Kate seems to be favouring blue coats during her pregnancy: She opted for a similar coat to the opening of the Valero Pembroke Refinery back in November.

Note: Royal fans can follow Kate's every move (well, more moves) over at their new Twitter account, KensingtonRoyal. Lots of great photos there. Check it out!
