Kate Middleton’s baby bump appeared out of nowhere!

The 6-months pregnant Dutchess of Cambridge, 31, visited The Willows Primary School at the Wythenshawe estate in Manchester, England this morning, where she showed off her growing belly in an Erdem patterned dress.

Until now, Kate’s belly has remained pretty inconspicuous. While we’re used to seeing Prince William’s wife wear dress coats that cover her bump— not to mention, she’s remained unusually thin for someone who’s in their sixth month— today’s ensemble accentuated her newfound pregnancy curves.

And she looks fantastic! The mommy-to-be appeared happy and radiant on her trip, and even made an 8-year-old’s day.

“She asked my name and how happy I was,” Kara O’Shea told the UK Mirror about the Dutchess’ visit. “I felt happy.”

Kate was greeted by hundreds of children— and a a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Henry— who were celebrating St. George's Day.

The royal— who’s recently decided to patron three more charities, bringing her total philanthropy count to seven—was visiting the school to launch a project to help reduce the impact of drug and alcohol addiction on the country’s youth.

While the sex of the royal baby has not been released, Wills and Kate’s little boy or girl will hold the esteemed title of Prince or Princess.

Do you think Kate is expecting a boy or girl?
