Kate Middleton Pregnant Rumours Sparked After William, Duke Of Cambridge, Reveals Two Children Dream

Kate Middleton pregnant rumours have been sparked again after William, the Duke of Cambridge, revealed for the first time that he wants to have two children with his wife.

William has spoken candidly in the past about starting a family with Kate but had not commented about numbers.

His admission came during a visit to the Gardens by the Bay attraction in Singapore when the royal couple went on a walkabout.

Corine Ackermann, 17, who was with school friends from the Tanglin Trust British School, said: "Someone asked him how many children he would like to have, and he said he was thinking about having two."

The Duke has mentioned a number of times his desire to start a family and it is not unusual for members of the public to quiz him about the topic.

During a reception in April held for polar trekkers at Goldsmiths' Hall in London, William cooed over a young baby he held in his arms.

He cradled Hugo Eric Scott, dressed in a Superman romper suit, as his proud parents Vic and Hanna Vicary looked on.

Kate Middleton pregnant rumours continued after she was pictured drinking just water at a formal event in Singapore, it was reported.
