The gossip mags seem convinced a royal baby girl is on the way, after Duchess of Cambridge apparently let slip the letter “d” while talking to a well wisher.
In the incident a week ago in the English fishing town of Grimsby, the pregnant duchess was given a teddy bear by a local woman.
Another woman who was nearby has said she heard Kate reply: “Thank you. I will take that for my d … for my baby.”
Since then a video of the exchange has cast doubt on whether she said anything of the kind, while another report has surfaced that during the same visit she may have also referred to the unborn child as “he”.
Middleton is five months pregnant and should have had her 20-week scan by now, with overseas reports claiming she and Prince William have learnt the child’s gender.
“We’re Having A Girl,” the New Zealand Woman’s Weekly headlined its story, even putting quote marks around the words.
“It’s A Girl! Kate’s little princess,” was the way Woman’s Day introduced the story, with New Idea also taking the “It’s a girl!” approach.
Moving onto a princess of the pop kind, Woman’s Day has pictures of Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris as a cheerleader for the basketball team at her Buckley School.
The most surprising thing about Paris, 15, was how normal she was, the magazine reported.
She had become the family’s most fascinating figure, standing up to her feuding uncles and aunts, tweeting furiously about their attempts to get more money out of her father’s will.
“I am who I am,” Paris said on Twitter. “I’m weird, I’m lame, I run into things, I spill food, I trip, I scream about random stupid stuff, but I’m me and I like it.”
She will be starring in fantasy film Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys, and with siblings – Prince Michael, 16, and Blanket, 11 – has signed on to aunt La Toya Jackson’s talent agency.
Woman’s Day also reported on the wedding of hip-hop star Scribe to long time love Kylie Taylor.
The wedding took place in Samoa on December 12, the day the deadly Cyclone Evan hit the island.
The two grew up in the same tough east Christchurch suburbs and first got together 15 years ago when Scribe was 18 and Taylor 21.
Scribe – real name Malo Luafutu – acknowledged the pair had split up half a dozen times, but said: “Having four kids at a young age has been the staple that’s kept us together.”
They did formally separate in late 2011, and
