Just five days before St. James Palace confirmed Life & Style’s report that Kate Middleton is pregnant — the duchess made her last public appearance.

Hidden under Kate’s cream-colored coat was the sight of her growing baby bump!

On Nov. 28, Kate, along with her hubby Prince William, visited Cambridge in England. In the photo, the 30-year-old brunette beauty was in wonderful spirits as she smiled and waved to the crowd. And no wonder that smile was so big! Though they hadn’t shared their big news with the world just yet, she and William were harboring quite a secret.

That same day, a fan gifted William something perfect for his little one on the way: a onesie decorated with a helicopter and the slogan “Daddy’s little co-pilot.”

“When I gave it to him he said, ‘I’ll keep that,’ and handed it to his aide,” fan Samantha Hill shares.

It looks like he’ll be putting that to good use now!

“They’re planning to make an announcement in December,” Kate’s childhood pal, Jessica Hay, first revealed exclusively to Life & Style last week. “I have this on high authority, and it’s not to be taken lightly. It’s going to be wonderful, happy news when it’s announced.”

Finally, on Dec. 3, that long-awaited announcement came to fruition.

“I hope we’ll be able to have a happy family ourselves,” Kate said shortly after getting engaged in 2010. “[The royal family has] been great over the years, helping me with difficult times, and we see a lot of each other, and they’re very, very dear to me.”

“I’m just very keen to have a family and both Catherine and I are looking forward to having a family in the future,” Wills has also voiced in the past.

And we can’t wait to see this family once the heir to the throne is born!
