As the news the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their first child sweeps across the world, the media have been searching for the most creative ways to say "she's pregnant".

None appear to have managed the announcement more crudely than the Huffington Post whose website is blazoned with "Preggers".

The Huff Post coverage includes a live blog, although it could be long running - Middleton is believed to only be about two months along.

TMZ didn't fall far short of up the duff, opting to go with a "royally knocked up" headline which was followed by: "She's got a CRUMPET IN THE OVEN!!!"

"The Royal Palace has released a statement ... confirming Middleton is preggo with Prince William's royal fetus."

Meanwhile in Gawker:

"#CONFIRMED that Kate Middleton was throwing up all over herself today. What kind of example are you setting for your baby, Kate Middleton? Party mom. Yikes.

"The announcement is wonderful news for people who have been predicting it every day since the couple began dating in 2002." 

UK paper The Sun headlined with "Baby Joy for Wills and Kate", while the Guardian leads with "A Nation Expecting".

The Guardian has also pulled together an interesting quiz game called "Name that Royal Baby", and offers the Duchess some choice parenting tips from the younger Middleton, Pippa.

The Daily Mail is leading with the story that Queen Elizabeth was left in the dark about the pregnancy until Kate was taken to hospital.

"MailOnline understands that members of the Royal Family - including the Queen - were only told about the pregnancy this afternoon after the decision was made to admit Kate to hospital.

The Mail reports the Duchess began to feel ill at her parents' home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, where the couple had spent the weekend. She was taken to hospital from there.
