KATE Middleton has confessed that she is nervous about giving birth, as she showed off her baby bump for the first time in public.
Prince William's wife's admission came as she chatted to a group of women recovering from drink and drug addictions at a treatment centre run by the charity Action On Addiction, of which she is patron.
Kate spent time with an arts therapy group at Hope House in Clapham, south London, where the centre's clients had completed paintings charting their battle with substance abuse.
Lisa, a mother-of-three who did not want to give her full name, said: "I did ask her if she was nervous (about giving birth). She said it would be unnatural if she wasn't – she's human like us."
