A change of heart. This past January, Duchess Kate revealed that she and Prince William were likely done expanding their family of five, admitting, “I don’t think William wants more kids!” 

But an insider tells OK! that the royal, 38, has since managed to convince her husband, also 38, to try for baby No. 4! “They recently sat down for a hear-to hear, and Kate told William that she wanted one more baby,” says the insider, adding that the future king was surprised to learn how much having another child would mean to his wife. 

“By the end of the conversation, William said that he’d had a change of heart,” the insider continues. “Provided they can do this in a stress-free manner, he’s now thrilled to be giving baby-making another shot—and Kate’s cautiously optimistic that they’ll be successful.”

According to the insider, Kate initially had her own hesitations about another pregnancy, as throughout her previous three, she suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form of morning sickness. While she confessed the condition left her feeling “utterly rotten,” she stuck it out and eventually learned ways to cope with the debilitating illness. “It was through hyperemesis that I really realized the power of the mind over the body,” she explained, “because I really had to try everything to help me through it.”

While the couple had no problem conceiving their first three kids—Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 2,– the insider says they’re aware that it might not be as easy this time around. “William and Kate are both a little older now, which is why they’re also contemplating adoption. It would be a break from tradition, but it’s something they have no qualms about,” spills the insider. “They both have so much love to offer and think giving a home to a child in need would spread a beautiful message to the world.”
