With a slip of the tongue, Prince William may have given away the sex of his third baby.


It’s always a complete guessing game when it comes to predicting the names and sex of Kate and Wills’ regal offspring.

While royal watchers have their hearts, and pennies, settled on Alice for a girl, and Albert for a boy, we might have just been given a very solid clue by the father himself about the sex of his third baby.

An avid football fan (or soccer as Aussies know it), Prince William dropped a hefty hint while at his team Aston Villa’s stadium to watch a game against Cardiff City on Tuesday night.

The Prince got very excited when Aston Villa’s mid-fielder Jack Grealish scored a late-game goal (to the non-soccer literate people out there, apparently this was a very big deal).

And according to The Mirror, after the game, an elated Prince William joined fans and told them, “I’m going to insist the baby is called Jack,” before pausing, and adding, “… or Jackie”.

Oh, Wills, that sounds suspiciously like an accidental slip of the tongue… followed by an impressive attempt to patch up the fact you just revealed you’re most definitely, maybe, probably, having a little baby boy. Nice try, your highness.

Luckily we don’t have long to wait till we finally get to meet the next royal offspring, but for now we’ll consider this latest clue official and un-faultable proof that their next child will be a boy.

You heard it here first.

LISTEN: Apparently the ‘perfect’ celeb pregnancy is a lot more complicated than you think.
