Aaw she looks amazing, i love this dress! x

This dress looks so similar to the one that Jessica Alba wore at the same event that I had to scroll down and compare to make sure it wasn’t the same exact one (how funny would that be?). I’m excited to find out if she will actually be having a girl like everybody is speculating, or if it will end up being a boy.

Holiday on

Im sure she knows its a girl with all the talking she does about it.

Wow! Kate looks absolutely beautiful. Everything from the dress to her hair to her bump to the shoes.

I loved watching her speak of her engagement you can tell how excited she is to have this baby and be engaged to a man she loves

. I also give her props for being so civil with her ex-husband and giving Ryder a healthy family life even with his parents divorced. Ryder must love having these new siblings after his dad recently giving him a sister and his mom being pregnant now.

I believe she doesn’t know the sex of the baby. She is not talking about it being a girl alot….while, I guess it might be a lot, since she has been asked the same question over and over and over. Kate STOP answer the same questions, you are causing doubt on people…..such drama.

Kate is one of those women who glows from the inside & out!!! Absolutely beautiful!!

Actually I remember when Kate was pregnant with Ryder she kept talking about how she though he was a boy because as she put it, “I feel like I’m raging with male testosterone!” Not sure if she knew Ryder would be a boy or if she just really had that mother instinct. But having a different pregnancy no way means it’s a different sex. I do hope though it’s a girl bc I think she really wants it to be.

BTW she looks completely beautiful – she’s literally glowing!

Kate looks gorgeous! That dress is beautiful and she looks so happy since she’s been pregnant. I wish her and Matt much happiness.

she looks wonderful, i love the colour , mist of the time i dislike the gold colour but this i lovely, i new what all my children were, 100% and i was always proved right, some times i guess mummy just knows best

I wish she would just stop saying that she thinks she is having a girl. If she knows, great…then, say it. But to keep saying that she thinks it is a girl, looks like she is carrying a girl, etc, etc…makes her sound like she only wants a girl and would be dissappointed if she had another boy. I am sure she wouldn’t be upset if she had another boy, (I would hope not…a healthy baby is the most important thing, right?) but, it makes her sound like she would be by saying that all the time. I am starting to get a little irritated with her. With all that being said, she does look beautiful in this photo.

really, who cares if she has a glass of wine on vacation? no harm would be done with one glass. concentrate on yourself instead. when women have amnios dr’s often say go home and put your feet up with a glass of red wine to relax. She looks good. She looks the same as she did with Ryder, minus 15lbs. I’m sure it will a be a girl, though, can’t wait to hear her name

Halley on

Thats a great dress! She looks really beautiful. I also suspect she knows its a girl, since she seems to bring it up every time she’s questioned about the pregnancy.

Olivia on

Alright, I love this dress! Much better than that blue animal print thing, lol.

Sarah S. on

Wow, she’s really in the home stretch!! She looks radiant here. 🙂
