Britain’s Prince William and his wife Kate are expecting their second baby.
The official announcement was made this morning and confirmed on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's website.
It said the Queen and members of both families were delighted with the news. The new baby will be fourth in line to the throne.
The couple’s first child, Prince George, was born in July last year amid massive worldwide interest.
The announcement said Kate was suffering from pregnancy sickness, as she did when expecting last time.
She is being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace in London while her husband makes a planned visit to Oxford.
