Prince William teased his wife, Kate Middleton, about not wanting more children during a visit to Clitheroe Community Hospital in Lancashire, England, on Thursday.
“Don’t give my wife any more ideas!” William joked with staffers as they swooned over Middleton, 40, cradling an onlooker’s baby in her arms.
As Kate returned the baby to her parents, her husband added, “Don’t take her with you.”
The royal couple wed in April 2011 and share children Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3.
Middleton has previously opened up about the Duke of Cambridge not wanting more children, telling royal fan Josh Macpalce back in 2020, “I don’t think William wants any more.”
That’s not to say the heir to the throne doesn’t enjoy fatherhood. He recently talked about his personal growth since becoming a dad.
I’m a lot more emotional than I used to be,” William said in British TV documentary “When Ant and Dec Met The Prince: 40 Years of the Prince’s Trust.”
“I never used to get too wound up or worried about things. But now the smallest little things, you well up a little more, you get affected by the sort of things that happen around the world or whatever a lot more, I think, as a father.”
“Just because you realize how precious life is and it puts it all in perspective. The idea of not being around to see your children grow up [is horrible],” he added.
