Royal baby frenzy is in full swing as the British — and for some reason, everyone else on the planet — await the birth of the future heir to the throne.
If you manage to pry your eyes away from the live baby cam that The Telegraph has pointed at the doors of Saint Mary’s Hospital where Kate Middleton is reportedly in labor (in the hopes that sheer eagerness will force them to burst open, perhaps?), here is what Hollywood had to say about the impending birth.
UPDATE: IT’S A BOY!
