Twins Emily and Madeline, of Waltham, cuddled up together in their crib.

By now, the world knows that Kate Middleton is pregnant.


But what would happen if Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have twins? There is no report that the duchess is having twins. But there has been some speculation about which child would be the heir if she does. (AP Photo/Tom Hevezi, file) breaks it down.

Basically, if the twins are the same gender, the first born child is the heir. But if the twins are two different genders, the current rule of succession would make the boy the heir. A year ago, the British government voted to update that rule, but it hasn't happened yet.

And if the royal couple does indeed wind up having twins and needs advice (only time will tell), Boston-area parents of twins have lots of it. Check out this discussion about caring for twins in the Moms forums. Parents are discussing everything from comparing their own babies when it comes to learning and development to naming them to whether they should wake both of them up at the same time to eat.

And check out these adorable photos of Boston-area twins, including the above photo of twins Emily and Madeline of Waltham.
