Kate Middleton is only thought to be around 8 weeks pregnant but the royal couple were forced to announce their baby news after she was admitted to hospital suffering from Hyperemesis.
Apparently the Queen didn't even know about the good news until the morning before as the couple were forced to make the announce before the usual waiting period of 12 weeks.
The couple feared that news would leak on the internet so a statement was released saying, "Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby."
The palace said Kate is currently resting in the King Edward VII Hosptial in London with hyperemesis gravidarum, an acute morning sickness which requires supplementary hydration and nutrients.
Hyperemesis gravidarum affects about two per cent of pregnant women and is usually diagnosed during the first three months of pregnancy.
It tends to be more common in women who are in their first pregnancy, younger mothers, and those with multiple pregnancies.
While Royal twins would be amazing, we are happy for Kate to just have the one bub, safe and sound. For now anyway...
Hope it all gets a bit easier soon Kate!
Have you suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum? Think Kate should take it easy and cancel royal appointment?
