Pregnant Kate Middleton Says Her Friends Keep Giving Baby Name Suggestions

PUBLISHED ON 04/05/2013

Everybody's favorite mama-to-be Kate Middleton is apparently taking baby name suggestions!

The Duchess of Cambridge, while visiting the Quarriers Stopover Project is Scotland, told reporters that even though she and her husband, Prince William , have a short list for both boy and girl names, "it's very difficult" to pick one! She even joked that her friends keep texting her name suggestions.

Kate, girlfriend,  I'm here for you — let me help you. Direct message me your number. I've got ideas, girl. And we've got a dozen and one name predictions for your little girl (or boy!) come July. We even picked this beautiful, classic and elegant name choice that's got family values written all over it! It's a sweet nod to all the women in your lives and I promise you'll love it.

I actually love that Kate is tuned in to what her friends are saying — and taking suggestions. It just proves that they're not aiming for a name that no one's ever heard of, or planning to name their baby-to-be after a direction on a compass. I'm sure that Will and Kate are getting only the best suggestions from their mates (but seriously Kate, my suggestion. Just think about it!)

Sporting one of her staple wood coats (because let's face it, when doesn't Kate step out sporting her killer maternity wardrobe?), the Duchess shared that even though she's not due until midsummer, she knows that she might give birth earlier — or later — than doctors expect her to. Look at that! In her second trimester and already got those mommy instincts down pat!

She said of her due date, "It's around mid-July, but apparently babies have their own agenda."

After attending the event, onlookers noted that the Princess and her Prince were "very relaxed and really in touch with the young people" they met. Of course they were! I swear, once baby comes, Kate and Will are going to be the most down-to-earth, honest parents. Royals! They're just like us!
