Few British headlines could make us happier right now than word that Kate Middleton is expecting a little brother or sister for prince of our hearts, baby George. That little tyke turns a year old in just a handful of days (July 22!) and some folks are hoping his parents have already gotten busy on making him the best birthday gift of all: a sibling!

We’re not the only ones with fingers crossed that Kate’s pregnant, though we’ve yet to put money down. We’re leaving that to the droves of folks who placed bets on July 14 about the possibility Baby No. 2 will be announced this very month.


Coral, which touts itself as the U.K.’s No. 1 trusted online betting website, thinks there may be something to the flood of bets it saw come in last night. “When bets come in at once late in the evening, it sets alarm bells off,” Coral’s PR manager, Nicola McGeady, tells People. “It’s been quiet and then all of a sudden, a week before Prince George’s birthday, this happened. The bets sealed our opinion that someone knows something we don’t.”

The bet in question has since been pulled from the site but we’re still here, crossing our fingers, rubbing our lucky rabbit’s foot, counting our four-leaf clover, hoping a new little prince or princess is on route to Kensington Palace.
