There’s that royal baby bump!

Nearly two weeks after Kate Middleton drove royal enthusiasts wild with a possible mention of her baby’s sex, the Duchess has now revealed that while still doesn’t know the sex of the baby, she wants a boy.

On Sunday, the pregnant Middleton and her husband Prince William attended a St. Patrick’s Day military parade at Mons Barracks in Aldershot, England, where they met with soldiers from the 1st Battalion Irish Guards.

One of the soldiers, Lee Wheeler, got a chance to speak to the Duchess following the ceremony.

“I asked her do you know if it’s a girl or a boy and she said not yet,” he later told reporters. “She said ‘I’d like to have a boy and William would like a girl.’ I asked her if she and any names and she said no.’” [via PEOPLE]

During a royal engagement in Grimsby, England on Mar. 5, the Duchess made headlines when many believed she accidentally told the public what she was having.

After accepting a teddy bear from a local, the Duchess was heard saying “Thank you, I’ll take that for my d–,” before stopping herself.

The Duchess is due in July.
