Ever since they both announced their pregnancies at the end of last year we’ve been wondering if Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian will end up giving birth around the same time and now bookmakers have got in on the action, offering odds that the Duchess and reality star will give birth on the same day!
St James’s Palace confirmed today that the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William’s baby is due in July. Meanwhile it is thought Kim is also around the two to three month stage in her pregnancy, meaning she will most likely give birth in July too.
Bookmaker Ladbrokes is offering odds of 50/1 that Kate and Kim will give birth on the same day and if they give birth in the same week the odds are slashed to 7/1. If Kate’s baby arrives first punters can expect odds of 6/1 (until Kim announces her birth date).
Paddy Power is offering better odds on the famous mothers ‘doing the double’ at 66/1 with a spokesman for the bookmakers telling the Mail Online: “If both Kate and Kim do the double the world’s media will have a baby bonanza on their hands and a right royal fight will be had over those all-important first pictures.”
“It’s altogether more likely though that Kate will reign supreme in a solo effort and that we’ll all be wetting the baby’s head sometime late July.”
A spokesman for Ladbrokes meanwhile revealed their predictions: “As the two of the most popular women in the world all eyes are on Kim and Kate until July but we fancy Kate to start pushing first!”
As well as confirming the estimated due date, the palace also confirmed today that the Royal couple are not expecting twins, as first speculated following Kate’s hospitalisation for severe morning sickness in the early stages of her pregnancy.
The Duchess of Cambridge is now believed to be 13-14 weeks pregnant but Kim and boyfriend Kanye West are remaining uncharacteristically coy about their baby’s due date with the only clues being Kim favouring baggier clothes in recent days- is her baby bump starting to show?
We’re sure Kim will be happy if she does end up giving birth around the same time as Kate, she’s previously confessed to being a huge fan of the Duchess…
