Triple baby boom for Duke of Gloucester's family

Wednesday January 20, 2010

In a stroke of coincidence, the Duke of Gloucester's two daughters and son have announced they are all expecting babies at the same time.

The Queen's cousin and his Denmark-born wife Birgitte are said to be "delighted" by the happy news.

"They are all due within a month of one another," says a family friend.

"Birgitte will certainly have her hands full."

The Duke and Duchess are already grandparents to two-year-old Xan, who has the courtesy title Lord Culloden.

His mother is GP Claire Booth, who is married to their son, Alexander, the Earl of Ulster. They are expecting their second child.

Their elder daughter, Lady Davina, (pictured with husband Gary Lewis, left) is also pregnant.

And so is their younger daughter, Lady Rose, 29, who is married to George Gilman, son of property developer and former director of Leeds United Football Club Peter Gilman.
