We all know Kate Middleton is pregnant. And we have a pretty good idea what her due date will be.

But when that royal baby actually does arrive, how exactly will news of the blessed event be proclaimed?

Well, rumor has it that the big announcement will initially be made via Twitter. How very 2013, right?

At least that's what the U.K.'s Now magazine is reporting, adding that, as is tradition, a note will later be placed on the gates of Buckingham Palace upon the tiny tyke's arrival.

A palace spokesperson, though, tells E! News: "We haven't yet made any announcement about how we will announce the birth, but it will not be done exclusively on Twitter."

Of course, we just can't wait to hear the big news. Regardless of how it's revealed.
