Kate Middleton Pregnant and Hospitalized

What sends the global media into even more of a frenzy than a British royal wedding? A British royal baby.

After months of rumors, it’s now official: Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting their first-born child. St James's Palace confirmed the news after the Duchess of Cambridge suffered “acute morning sickness” severe enough to check into a hospital, where officials said she would remain for several days.

It remains unclear how far along Kate is, but the BBC said it is unlikely she has progressed past 12 weeks.
