Foot in mouth! Duchess of Cambridge reveals she wants a boy; Prince William hoping for a girl

Considering the Duchess of Cambridge has been criticised for not being allowed to say anything in public, she's doing a pretty good job of blabbing at every opportunity – especially when it comes to news about the sex of her unborn baby.

First we had DaughterGate, where Kate either was or wasn't overheard uttering the 'D' word in response to a question from a Grimsby will-wisher about her baby's gender.

And at the weekend, another D factored in a new episode of baby blabbing. Only this time the D was a drain, which the five months pregnant Duchess put her foot into – in more ways than one.

During a St Patrick's Day army parade in Aldershot, Kate's heel got stuck in the offending grid and inexplicably caused her to reveal that she would prefer a son as her first child, while husband William is hoping for a girl.

Either way, the child will be heir to the throne with the proposed change to the law of succession.

But who can blame her? Being a parent-to-be is THE most exciting event in anyone's life. Our child-to-be is all any of us ever want to talk about.

It's why the term Baby Bore was invented. It's why thousands of blogs are devoted to the subject. We're having a baby and we want to crow about it.

Kate might be the newest Royal in the Palace (for another four months), but when it comes to parenthood, she's just like the rest of us. Tell the world, Kate. We love you for it.
