Prince William and Kate Baby: Duchess Vows Not to Have Third Child, Source Says

Prince William and Kate Middleton wanted to have three children but the Duchess has reportedly vowed not to have another child as she’s suffering from her second pregnancy.

Kate had trouble with her first pregnancy but has become even more sick during the second one, suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, a sickness that brings extreme vomiting and weakness among other symptoms. 

“Originally, the couple had talked about having lots of kids–but hadn’t anticipated Kate enduring such a tough time,” a source told the National Enquirer tabloid.

“She was terribly worried Wills would be heartbroken–but he was touchingly sympathetic! Assuring her he’s happy with Bonnie Prince Georgie and the pending bun, he declared: ‘I never want to see you suffer like this again!'”

The report is unverified, though previous tabloid reports have indicated that the royal couple did want another child after this pregnancy.

Globe magazine reported in early August that Kate and William wanted three kids in about five years time.

They desired children close in age because both come from families that have just that.

Kate’s severe sickness prompted her to recently move in with her parents at their Bucklebury mansion, where her mother has been helping take care of her and Prince George.

A source told the Boston Herald that Prince William has been a pillar of support for his wife, doing everything he can to help her get through the pregnancy.

“It’s been so difficult, but she has all the people she loves around her,” the royal source said.

“William’s been amazing throughout all of this. He’s in constant communication with the doctors. He doesn’t like seeing Kate unwell and just wants her to get better so they can enjoy the rest of the pregnancy.”

And nanny Maria Borrallo has stepped up her care of the young Prince George due to Kate’s sickness. George has become quite adventurous.

“You can’t let him out of your sight for a millisecond,” the source said. “He’s very curious – he opens anything with a door or a lid.”
