The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton's pregnancy has reportedly caused a major baby boom in the UK with an increase sales of home fertility monitors and pregnancy tests by 60% since the royal couple went public with their baby news in December.

Ever the royal trend setter, it seems eager Kate fans have not only copied her hair and clothes, the news of a royal baby has reportedly sent prospective mothers to be into a frenzy, perhaps hoping to be one of the mothers to share the royal baby birth day?

According to Clearblue, there has been the biggest rise in almost five years in test packs in Boots the chemist ever since Kate and Wills announced the pregnancy last month.

Clearblue UK Brand Manager Hugh Ayling said: “We’ve never seen an increase like this before. We were pretty stunned when the stats came in and we wondered why it was. Then we worked it back and saw the spike came after Kate made her announcement.”

“It would seem that women are trying for a baby in the hope of experiencing their pregnancy alongside Kate.”

Well it's not like she's going to hangout with you just because she's pregnant, but could a hope to perhaps produce the next royal bride or groom be behind the boom?

Eager parents hoping to emulate the Middletons, who've risen to the top of British society since their daughter started dating the heir to the throne 12 years ago, may have encouraged them to get busy. Kate's pregnancy isn't the only factor though.

The report has also pointed to the London Olympics and erotic novel 'Fifty Shades of Grey' for pushing up the pregnancy stats. After all who doesn't want to get down and dirty after watching some sport, especially if it's US swimming hottie Ryan Lochte. Just too much hot bods on parade!
