Gary Goldsmith, Carole Middleton‘s jolly younger brother and a bit of naughty fella, recently talked to the Daily Mirror about, well, just about everything Middleton.
It seems we’ve got Goldsmith all wrong, according to him. And you know what? I’m inclined to believe the old boy.
“Everyone always assumes the worst,” the self-made businessman said. “People see my tattoos, read stuff and think I’m this awful, dodgy bloke. It couldn’t be further from the truth.”
Goldsmith loves talking about his family. Like, a lot. Which is great for the rest of us, because we get to hear all about the Duchess.
“I remember pictures of Kate when she was a toddler, sat in my parents’ garden, balancing on this rockery in this fish pond my dad made from an old corner bath,” Goldsmith told the British paper.
“We were all sitting there thinking, ‘Just one picture, don’t fall in’… and that girl there is now one of the most iconic women on the planet. And I’m her uncle…”
Goldsmith, who likely got a stern talking-to from Carole over his 2009 Ibiza bust, thinks that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are having are going to make history.
“My suspicion is that they’re having a baby girl,” Goldsmith said. “But, of course, I don’t know that for fact.
“I believe Kate and William have kept the sex of their child a secret to everyone but themselves. They’re a very modern couple and I believe William will be as hands-on as Kate with the parenting. That’s the genius of it.
“It would be brilliant, wouldn’t it, if they do have a little girl? To have one of my family, my niece, making history will be absolutely unbelievable.”
Goldsmith attended the UK premiere of The Frozen Ground this evening, starring Nicolas Cage and Vanessa Hudgens.
