Two years earlier -- on the same day they announced their engagement -- the future spouses were asked about their plans to start a family. "I think we'll take it one step at a time," William said in a Nov. 16, 2010 video interview. "We'll sort of get over the marriage thing first, then look at the kids. But obviously, we want a family, so we'll have to start thinking about that."
Indeed they have. Just last month, a source told Us Weekly the two were hoping to produce an heir in 2013. "They are working on it," a confidant said. "In a dream situation, they'd love to be a step closer at Christmas."
Christmas came early for the couple, who tied the knot on April 29, 2011, in a televised ceremony. "Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby," St. James's Palace told Us in a statement. "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."
