Prince William may have just accidently let a big secret slip: the sex of his third child with Duchess Kate Middleton, who is weeks away from giving birth!
Royal fans are speculating the coming child will be a boy after Prince William made this comment:
“I’m going to insist the baby is called Jack.”
The expectant father made the declaration after his favourite football player, 22-year old Jack Grealish, scored the winning goal in a Championship game, as reported by Mirror.
The Prince quickly realized the slip, hastily adding, “... or Jackie.”
But the damage was done. For many, the comment confirms that the royals’ offspring, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2, can definitely be expecting a little brother.
The accidental confession took place after Prince William cheered on team Ashton Villa from his executive seats, later joining the players in the dressing room to congratulate them.
Grealish gave William his game jersey, and said the Prince “was really nice. He’s such a down-to-earth person.”
The royal baby watch is already well underway, with barricades erected outside London’s St. Mary’s church in anticipation of the arrival. Until then, fans will feel safe in assuming a young Prince is on his way.
