A royal baby is on the way!

Monaco’s Pierre Casiraghi and his wife Beatrice Borromeo are expecting their first baby, according to numerous European sources.

While the Monaco palace isn’t commenting on the happy news, a very pregnant-looking Borromeo was spotted recently in New York’s LaGuardia Airport alongside her husband, who is 7th in line of Monaco’s succession.

Borromeo is reportedly due in early 2017.

The royal baby will be the fourth grandchild for Princess Caroline, who happily celebrated her grandson’s lavish wedding to the Italian heiress in July 2015.

Earlier this year, Borromeo told Glamour magazine that she wanted to start a family while continuing to concentrate on her professional career as a journalist.

“I come from a large family, and I want children of my own,” she said. “But at the moment I’m thinking about putting my career in a place where it wouldn’t get threatened by the presence of children.”

The new baby, who will be eighth in line to the throne, won’t have a shortage of playmates either. Casiraghi’s’s brother Andrea and his wife Tatiana Santo Domingo have a young son and daughter, Sacha and India. And his sister Charlotte Casiraghi has a son, Raphael.

And Casiraghi’s uncle Prince Albert and wife Princess Charlene have twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, who’ll celebrate their second birthday next month.
