Kate Middleton Pregnancy Rumors: A Look Back At All Those Times She Was Reportedly Expecting (PHOTOS)

It's official!

Kate Middleton is expecting her first child with Prince William, a palace spokesperson confirmed Dec. 3.

The representative said:

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby.

The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news.

The Duchess was admitted this afternoon to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter.

So now that the Duchess of Cambridge is actually pregnant, let's take a look back at all those other times she was rumored to be carrying a royal heir -- or royal twins for that matter -- over the past two years.
