After months and months of speculation the confirmation has finally arrived — Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting their first child!

St. James Palace released a statement today after Kate Middleton was hospitalized earlier this morning with Hypermesis Grayidarum, a persistent form of morning sickness that causes dehydration. Palace officials revealed in a press announcement “As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter.”

We wish the Duchess a speedy recovery, and hope the rest of her pregnancy goes smoothly. Congratulations to the royal couple.

Let the real bump watch for the heir to the throne begin!
