The process of welcoming a new child into the world is a calm and restful one… said no parent ever.

Prince William admitted that although the third royal baby with Kate Middleton is “very good news” (obviously), “there’s not much sleep going on at the moment” at Kensington Palace. The Duke of Cambridge, 35, who made his first public appearance since news broke of royal baby no. 3 in Oxford at a policing and mental health conference, added that the family-of-four was pleased to “start celebrating this week,” although “it was a bit anxious to start with.”

Kensington Palace announced the Duchess of Cambridge’s third pregnancy yesterday morning, and also revealed that she’s once again suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. The acute morning sickness causes unpleasant side effects like severe nausea, vomiting, and dehydration, and landed the Duchess, 35, in the hospital during her first pregnancy. Kate is currently being cared for at home in apartment 1A of Kensington Palace.

While the Duke and Duchess have only just revealed the big news, bookies are already lining up to predict the sex and name of the soon-to-be fifth-in-line to the British crown. Thus far, Princess Alice leads the betting pack, with Princess Victoria and Prince Arthur not far behind.

The royal family is no doubt delighted about the newest addition to the royal family, with Prince Harry, 32, telling reporters that he’s “very, very happy for them.”

Prince Harry also tried to ease reporter’s concerns over Kate’s health condition, saying: “I haven’t seen her for a while but I think she’s okay.”

With a huge support system and a loving family behind her, we have no doubt that Kate will once again overcome Hypermesis Gravidarium and be able to enjoy the latter part of her pregnancy. Those sleepless nights, however, we expect will continue far, far into the little prince or princess’ future. Because, well, #PARENTLIFE.
