Ring the bells! Sound the chimes! A royal baby is really on the way this time, not just in rumors.

Life and Style reported the pregnancy news on Nov. 28, but now it's finally been confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (aka Kate Middleton and Prince William, both 30) are expecting their first child. According to a palace press release (via Today), Kate was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in Central London with hyperemesis gravidarum — severe morning sickness — and will stay there for several days, since the pregnancy is in its "very early stages." She'll also have to rest afterward.

That should keep her out of the public eye, so she doesn't have to endure bump watch for a while.

Are you excited for the happy couple?
