Kate Middleton’s Best Friend Jessica Hay Says She’s Pregnant Again

db13LMK 106347 600x400 Kate Middleton’s Best Friend Jessica Hay Says She’s Pregnant Again

There’s another royal baby on the way.

According to a new report, Kate Middleton is pregnant with her second child.

Kate’s longtime friend, Jessica Hay, confirmed to New Day that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting another baby with Prince William, and the royal couple will make the official announcement in the next few months.

Hay famously confirmed Middleton’s first pregnancy in November 2012 just weeks before the royal confirmation came.

“Kate’s inner circle are buzzing with the news that she is pregnant,” Hay told the Australian publication.

“I’ve heard it from several different friends of theirs now and they’re saying that they think there’s going to be an official announcement in weeks.

“Kate’s face is fuller like it was when she was first expecting George and she’s been changing her hair, which could be to disguise the fullness.

“She has rosy cheeks, she’s letting her greys show again, and whenever she’s out in public she goes to great lengths to hold something over her tummy…

“With George, they were forced to tell the world very early on that Kate was pregnant because she was rushed to the hospital with that awful hyperemesis gravidarum at around six or seven weeks.”

True Blood Recap: Which Character Was Reunited with Their Dead Loved One?

07/14/2014 at 01:30 AM EDT

If all was happy in Bon Temps the last time you watched True Blood, then read no further … then again, things were never that happy in Bon Temps.

Sunday’s episode of the HBO drama began with a few phone calls.

Still reeling from the deaths of her best friend Tara and her boyfriend, Alcide, Sookie (Anna Paquin) was tasked with breaking the news of the werewolf’s death to his father, Jackson (Robert Patrick), while Jason (Ryan Kwanten) called up his former best friend, Hoyt Fortenberry (Jim Parrack, making his first appearance on the show since season 5), to inform him that his mother had been killed by a vampire.

With no time to mourn herself, Sookie heads over to the house of Sheriff Andy Bellefleur (Chris Bauer) to give a pep talk to Arlene’s kids, who are understandably in a funk over the fact that their mother has been kidnapped by a pack of vampires infected with Hep-V. Sookie also visits with Holly (Lauren Bowles), who is suffering memory loss from PTSD (and glamouring). But thanks to Sookie’s fairy powers of mind reading, Holly is able to recall that she had been held in the basement of Fangtasia along with Arlene (Carrie Preston) and Nicole (Jurnee Smollett-Bell).

With that knowledge, Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) takes off to rescue his pregnant girlfriend but is convinced by Jason to wait until nightfall, when their vampire allies can assist them.

Back at Bill’s, despite James’s pleas, Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) refuses to feed and therefore is not healing from the bullet wound inflicted upon her by Hoyt’s mother. Sookie uses her tough-love medicine to convince Jessica to feed on Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) so she can be strong enough to help rescue the kidnapped residents of Bon Temps. Sookie also offers herself up as a meal to Bill (Stephen Moyer) to keep him in peak form for their rescue mission.

In a flashback, the history of Fangtasia is finally explained – and in a surprising twist, it was the brainchild of Ginger (Tara Buck), who did not start out the glamoured mess she would eventually become. Ginger’s plan to convert the video store Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) had been running since the 1980s would unfortunately be stolen by Pam, who finally reveals the true genesis of the idea to Eric as they are midflight to Bon Temps.

With Eric and Pam back in town, the rescue mission commences. But not before a stolen moment – and a loving embrace – between Eric and Sookie. The chemistry between the two is undeniable, but there are more pressing matters than potential romance.

Using a tunnel that was originally used for the underground railroad, Pam and Bill leave Eric – who is weakened by his Hep-V infection – with the rest of the group. Pam leads Nicole to safety while Bill goes to find Arlene, who is already being fed upon by the infected vampires (but not before Pam advises him not to do anything heroic, because a reunion with Sookie is never going to happen).

Although he is weak, Eric uses Sookie to be invited into Fantasia and distract the infected vampires while the rest of the rescue team sneaks in for a surprise attack. All looks like it is going to be fine until the gang of vampire-hating Bon Temps residents arrives and chaos breaks out.

Sookie holds Arlene as the redhead lies weak from blood loss. As Arlene hovers between life and death she sees her deceased husband, Terry Bellefleur (Todd Lowe). A drink of a vampire’s blood brings Arlene back to health – giving viewers at least one episode this season without a fan-favorite character meeting their death.

True Blood airs Sundays (9 p.m. ET) on HBO.

And baby makes four!

Less than four months after she reunited with her longtime love, Renee Oteri and her new husband Bracy Maynard are expecting their first child together, she tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The real estate agent, who competed for Juan Pablo Galavis‘s heart on The Bachelor, is just over three months along and due Jan. 19, 2015.

“We’re so excited!” Oteri tells PEOPLE. “Bracy is already paranoid — always checking in and making sure I’m okay. He’s in dad mode already!”

And the pregnancy has been smooth sailing so far, adds Oteri, who has not had any morning sickness.

“I’m feeling good,” she says. “We just had an appointment and this baby will not sit still! I keep calling her a she but we don’t know the sex yet. I can’t wait to find out.”

Baby’s big brother, Oteri’s son Ben, 9, is looking forward to the new addition too, though, “he’s hoping for a boy!”

For her part, Oteri is just thrilled to expand her family. And this is just the beginning. “We want more kids,” she says. “We’re going to try for another after this one!”
