Kate Middleton pregnant: bets placed on royal baby in 2017

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, are said to be thinking of expanding their family, thus offering the Queen her sixth great-grandchild.

Last year in October, bookmaker Ladbrokes placed the odds at 4/6 that the royal couple would welcome another child in 2017.

Now bookmakers Betfair are banking on the possibility of an official baby announcement by the end of this year. [via Express]

A recent report claiming that Kate was considering in vitro fertilization and hiring a surrogate to carry the baby was denied by Gossip Cop.
