Goodness, I’m really getting sick of this, I’m ready for it to be over. But then again, I’m going out of town for the holiday weekend so I’m really hoping that Kate won’t go into labor until at least the seventh, if not later. Watch the baby be born today (because it’s July 4th now since it’s after midnight), ugh. Today I was watching E News and they started the show off with pictures of Kate and I freaked out for a moment thinking she had had the baby—which I knew was not possible since none of the royal reporters on Twitter had mentioned anything (I’ve been Twitter stalking all of them so I don’t miss anything), but I still had that moment. I’m not even a Kate supporter, nor am I really excited about the new baby, but the closer we get to the birth the more my nerves are on edge. I don’t want to miss it, you know. Maybe I’m more excited than I’ve led myself to believe. Or maybe I’m just curious to the sex and what they’ll name it (I think, or at least I want, it to be a boy, and be named Arthur. It probably won’t be named Arthur, but I still think it would be great if they named it that. I just don’t want it to be a girl and be named Diana; that would be the worst thing possible for that poor kid). Anyway, more Kate news:
Us Weekly has another article about Kate, this one saying how she’s nervous for the birth but is feeling great. It quotes a ‘family source’; obviously either Carole or Pippa is talking, they’ve had paps and journos on their speed dial for years. Anyway, something interesting in the article is this quote:
“She’s still busy, making sure she’s done as much as possible for the new house before the baby is born,” the insider reveals. “Once the baby is here, she won’t have time for anything else!”
That is interesting for a few reasons. 1) It implies that Kate is busy, which is amusing since all she has ever seemed to be busy with is shopping and getting her hair done. 2) It implies that Kate is decorating that house herself, like she doesn’t have a professional interior decorator doing all the work for her *eye roll*. 3) It implies that Kate will actually be taking care of the baby all by herself once it gets here, like she isn’t going to have a team of full-time nurses and nannies to take care of that kid while she works out and shops and gets her hair done, again *eye roll*. The press and ‘insiders’ keep trying to fool us into thinking that Kate will be such a hands-on mother, which is utter nonsense. They’ve been trying to fool us into believing that they haven’t had a team of people around them this whole time and that they do all their own cooking/cleaning/etc. which is a lie, they have had a team around them, it’s just that Charles is the one paying for it. Since they’ve been lying about their team this whole time, I see no reason to believe that Kate will be a hands-on mother; she doesn’t seem that motherly to me, she always seems awkward around children when she meets them.
A different piece of news: apparently Kate is getting a ton of baby gifts. The Finnish government has given Kate a maternity kit which includes a ton of baby items, and also condoms, randomly. Plus she got some organic baby food via the Duchess of Cornwall on her visit to Wales. And some jeweler has commissioned a necklace with a miniature sudocrem pot on it for Kate to wear. Of course, this one just seems like another attempt to get free (or not so free since apparently the thing cost £10,000) publicity for the designer by linking their name with Kate’s. I’m so sick of people doing this, I hate name-droppers. It happens all the time with every other celeb but I just think it is really tacky.
Anyway, that happened. Here’s hoping the baby is late; or at least doesn’t come until next week. Happy Birthday, America!
