If you (like me) are keeping your fingers crossed that Kate Middleton's next baby will be a girl, you're in luck. As it turns out, the odds are definitely in our favor. Although the royal family themselves haven't revealed the baby's sex, bookies from British gaming company Punters of Ladbrokes report that 82 percent of all bets they've taken predict that Kate Middleton's second child will be a girl. It seems kind of insane to place money on the sex of an actual, real life tiny person, but this tiny person will grow up to become seriously influential, so maybe it's not that crazy that the people of England are anxious to find out whether Middleton's pregnant with a tiny princess or a tiny prince.
People are also placing bets on what the baby's name will be, whether that baby happens to be a he or a she. Girl names? Alice comes in first, followed by Elizabeth, Charlotte, and Alexandra, while boy names being predicted are James, Arthur, Henry, or Charles. Obviously, this means it will be shocking for gamblers when the newest royal baby is born and named Beyoncé. What? It could happen!
Even though I could never imagine being pregnant and aware that a lot of people have money riding on my child, who hasn't even taken his or her first breath outside of the womb yet, I can't help but hope that the 82 percent is correct. It would be awesome if Middleton's baby is a girl, and I feel like the royal family would be thrilled by it, too.
Prince George would be an awesome big brother
