"Kate Middleton pregnant" the internet headlines have screamed for the past 12 months or so, though she's strangely yet to give birth to a child.

However, Jessica Hay, a childhood acquaintance of Kate's says the Duchess of Cambridge is definitely, 100 percent, well and truly pregnant this time.

Ms Hay told Australian tabloid New Idea that Middleton is expecting, adding, "They're planning to make an announcement in December. William and Kate are focused on starting a family."

The magazine attempts to add credence to the story by reporting on Middleton's recent "weight gain."

Hay added, "It seems very traditional, but of course they'll be happy with boys or two girls, they don't want more. They've discussed it endlessly and don't want to be older parents."

So, it's probably wise to tell you who Jessica Hay woman is anyway. Back in 2010, she claimed Middleton told her about her engagement via phone before she told anyone else.

She also predicted that the wedding would happen sometime in 2011. We're still dubious about the whole thing, though Middleton and Prince William have made no secret of their desire to have children, so who knows?

In other Kate Middleton news, Marie Claire is reporting that the Duchess sent back samples from the Kardashian's new Dorothy Perkins collection.

Though she's known to be keen on high street trends, it looks like this was a step too far for Kate.
