Kate Middleton on Baby Names: "My Friends Keep Texting Me" Suggestions
Whether she wants it or not, Kate Middleton is receiving baby name suggestions from her friends. The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge visited Quarriers Stopover Project in Glasgow, Scotland on Thursday, April 4 with husband Prince William and opened up about her royal pregnancy.
While chatting with the project manager of the homeless shelter, which provides short-term housing for 14 people between age 16 and 25, Middleton, 31, talked about her due date and if she's thought of any baby names.
"It's around mid-July, but apparently babies have their own agenda," she joked. Middleton kept her baby bump covered up during her travels throughout Scotland on Thursday under a short tartan Molah brand "Workers" coat.
Though they still have time, the first-time mom-to-be said she's struggling to come up with a baby name. "We have a short list for both [boy and girl] but it's very difficult," she confessed. But she's also getting some help, Middleton added, "My friends keep texting me names."
During her visit, Caitlin Tominey, 17, gifted Middleton with a wool baby bonnet, teddy bear and onesie. "It's very sweet of you, I'll keep it safe for the big day," Middleton said. "I've been trying to knit and I'm really bad. I should be asking you for tips."
Meanwhile, her husband, 30, was trying out his skills at DJ'ing. "It's difficult," he said. "I think I should come better prepared next time."
After their visit, Quarriers Chief Executive Paul Wood told reporters, "William and Kate were extremely relaxed and really in touch with the young people and understand the problems they face."
