Pregnant Kate Middleton Nominated for 'Celebrity Mum' 2013 [PHOTOS]
The blushing mom-to-be has been included in the nominees of Celebrity Mum of The Year 2013 by Foxy Bingo, even if the Duchess has not given birth yet.
Some of the mums included in this year's nominees include big names from the music, fashion, and entertainment industry, but the most getting buzz is the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.
Set to give birth in July, the Duchess of Cambridge has made the world excited after her pregnancy was leaked by a close friend. Not long after, the Royal Palace released an official statement, saying that the Duchess is indeed expecting her first child.
Another nominee vying for the acclaim is singer, Adele, who just had her first child with Simon Konecki in October. Britain's Got Talent Judge, Andrea Holden, is another strong contender for the award.
Just recently, the Duchess of Cambridge has been experiencing tremendous amounts of stress caused by leaked photos of her in a bikini showing her bare baby bump.
Taken by a persistent paparazzi while the couple is on vacation in the private island of Mustique, the photos first appeared in Italian publication, Chi Magazine. It was dubbed by the Royal Palace as an invasion of the royal couple's privacy, and the scandal made Prince William feel powerless and "disheartened."
Another controversy that hit Catherine was her disagreement with grandmother-in-law, The Queen, over the decision to use old baby furniture for the future royal heir. It was said that Catherine wants chic and ultra-modern baby furniture while The Queen insists for the dusty antiques to be hauled and placed inside the nursery.
The winner of the Celebrity Mum of the Year 2013 will be determined by votes via foxybingo.com, and will be announced after Mother's Day in May.
