Royal baby watch - Will and Kate expecting

The Internets say this is happening, so it must be true: Kate is pregnant. I can almost hear People Magazine editors dancing and celebrating into the wee hours of the night, as they couldn't rely indefinitely on Lindsay Lohan and Justin Bieber to sustain their magazine sales.

In all seriousness, once we dispense with the usual silliness over royal this and royal that, I trust we'll all let the young couple get on with the very real work associated with starting a family. Sure, they're famous by virtue of birth and marriage, but they're no more immune from the frightening realities of parenthood than anyone else.

Just wanted us to keep that in mind as we go about the rhythms of our own admittedly more mundane lives. May this growing family be granted the space it needs to find a safe and healthy path as it prepares to welcome the first of its next generation. Mazel tov to all.

Well the news has flooded the tv.. Her severe morning sickness is being talked about.... they did interview 'common' women who went thru the same thing.... right now I feel for her.. all this attention for what some everyday women go thru...I too hope she has a healthy, safe, pregnancy.. It would be nice if the media could find something else to write/talk about... Must be a slow news day...
