Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, are expecting their first baby, it was confirmed the other day. Countless celebrities and political figures have offered congratulations on the news, Snooki included – but she also has some tips for Kate.
Not the kind ever to be outdone, Snooki sat down for a brief interview with the New York Daily News and, in between congratulations, she also squeezed in a few helpful mommy tips.
Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, for those who are not familiar with the name, rose to international fame with MTV’s “Jersey Shore” but has completely overhauled her image since getting pregnant and becoming a mommy.
“It’s hard, but don’t stress out! Enjoy your pregnancy and be excited,” Snooki says.
“Congrats to Will and Kate. I’m sure she will be an amazing mom,” the reality star adds of the royal couple now expecting their “royal baby.”
She also urges Kate to buy a Boppy pillow because “every new mom should have one,” and tells her not to let her condition stop her from enjoying this special moment in her life.
As we also reported the other day, the Duchess is now in hospital for something known as hyperemesis gravidarum, an acute form of morning sickness which requires she be kept under medical observation for the first weeks of pregnancy.
“Enjoy your time at home — or the castle, in her case — with the baby. Especially the first few months,” Snooki continues.
“You’ll get to know him/her, keep them safe and fall more in love each day!” she adds.
Confirmation of the pregnancy has been received with glee around the world. According to reports, Kate and William had wanted to keep it a secret until Christmastime but could not because of her condition.
Insiders say that not even the royal family knew of the pregnancy until she was hospitalized.
