Kate Middleton's Unborn Child Is Already A Twitter Sensation

By Aly Semigran, Hollywood.com Staff

December 3, 2012: a day that will live in Twitter infamy. The day that the comedy gods smiled upon the smart aleck Twitter community when not only the actual Pope became a certified user, but the unborn child of Prince William and Kate Middleton was declared the Royal Baby and quickly became a trending topic. The couple not only created life, but a total pop culture frenzy.

Within a matter of minutes after the confirmation that ""The Duchess is pregnant"", the Internet sprung into action with baby name ideas (Billy Eichner's suggestion? ""Mo'nique!""), royal morning sickness remedies, celebrity play dates (""I hope Royal Baby and Blue Ivy Carter become best friends"" tweeted Brooklyn Decker), and most importantly, a Twitter parody account. Like the Bronx Zoo Cobra and the Dangling Crane before it, the Royal Fetus has gone from media fascination to full-blown cultural obsession in record time.

While the account was technically started back in April, with its maiden tweet ""Coming soon, literally...darling ;-)"" it finally declared ""I EXIST!!!!!"" on that fateful Monday morning. Since then, the Royal Fetus has bestowed upon us these gems:

From what I can tell so far, the internet is just a place where people talk about me. I love it! But wait what's love? #royalbaby

I know you're all wondering: the royal uterus smells of gin and baby powder. Also carrots? Kind of. #royalbaby

The iPad mini was developed solely so I would be able to Tweet my gestation live from the womb. So, that's why that exists! #royalbaby

Between this and @KateMiddletonFTW, this is going to be an entertaining next couple of months. Just make sure if you have a Royal Baby-related joke, you get it up fast. No time is wasted when it comes to news like this. Case in point:

Of course, not everyone is pleased with the blessed announcement. Especially not other famous children parody accounts like @SurisBurnBook, who has been scowling in 140 characters or less.

I've tried to prepare for this day, but it is more unbearable than I imagined. Cancel my appointments and bring me pancakes.

I don't want to talk about it. I just want to cry. tmblr.co/ZwxlDxYaNyD1
