Princess Charlene Of Monaco Is Pregnant With Her First Child

Princess Charlene of Monaco is pregnant with her first child! Cute!

The lovely news was released in a statement which said: "Prince Albert and Princess Charlene has the immense joy to announce they are expecting a happy event. The birth is due at the end of the year."


According to Hello! magazine, it was about a year ago that the Princess spoke about wanting to start a family.

"Now I'm settled and I think kids will come. I don't put any pressure on myself, if it happens, it happens," she told South African newspaper Sunday World.

The royal couple have made a few public appearances of late, and last week they attended a gala dinner in the run up to the Monaco Grand Prix and then returned again for the big race itself (along with hordes of celebs including Pixie Lott and Justin Bieber).

The pair met back in 2000 when the 36-year-old Princess and former Olympic swimmer was taking part in a race and they then married in July 2011 in a romantic ceremony in Monte Carlo.

We wonder if the new addition to Monaco's royal family will ever have a play date with adorable little Prince George. George, who we think is the most gorgeous tot in the world (we know we're biased) was voted most stylish in a poll by this week!

We got to see a lot of Prince George during the Royal Tour of Australia and New Zealand - check out the best snaps here!
