First of all, Congratulations :)

They might not have told ALL family members. Just the closest. But when it comes to this friend who told the press. Who knows, maybe a little test? Checking if someone is discreet enough to become a god-parent? Just an idea of course ...

I'm glad I amuse you, that's set my mind at ease.

Doctors and nurses are not mute robots. They have conversations with each other in open areas of the hospital which can be overheard, despite best efforts. Or maybe someone working in the hospital pharmacy might let it slip, or one of the administrators who deal with the hospital's records. Or a porter transporting files around the hospital. There are simply too many people who could easily find out, even in a private hospital, to keep it a secret.

EIIR is correct, nurses and doctors, and everyone else who works in a hospital talks. I know, I work in one. A few years ago we had a major political figure who checked into our hospital. Someone from housekeeping leaked it to the press that he was here and his office had to put out a statement. That employee was fired for breaching the confidentiality of the patient.

I am so happy for them! I hope Catherine's ok and the morning sickness thing isn't too serious. I had managed not to notice till I opened TRF and am in fact quite mad that no one had told me about these joyous news

It's been great to see all of the well-wishes for the couple and their little one. :)

I'd just like to echo that I think it's best that they officially announced the pregnancy rather than waiting it out. There's no way they could keep this secret, no way.

I have just heard the news...I am happy for them. I also think that they made the announcement because of her entrance in the hospital...however I am pretty sure that morning sickness was not the reason, no one will go to the hospital because of morning sickness..
