Birth next in line for right royal time

SALLY Glasson's first child could share a birth date with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's new baby but that is not her only regal similarity.

Mrs Glasson's parents were married in 1981, the same year that Prince William's parents Prince Charles and Princess Diana wed, and young Sally was born in 1982, the same year as Prince William.

Mrs Glasson and her husband Edward became engaged in December, 2010, only a month after Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their engagement, although they married a year after the 2011 royal wedding.

The Glassons are now expecting a baby on July 15, only two days after the royal bub is expected to arrive.

Mrs Glasson was surprised at the royal parallels in her life. "I didn't realise," she said.

While the royals are tipped to be having a girl, Mr and Mrs Glasson, who divide their time between Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, have been told they are going to have a boy.

They have a shortlist of names but at this point they might also diverge from the royal parents-to-be.

"I don't think there's anything royal on the short-list," Mrs Glasson said.

Jodie Stephenson, of Currimundi, is expecting her second child on July 13, the same day the royal baby is due.

Mrs Stephenson believes that she is going to have a boy and the Duchess will give birth to a girl.
