A couple of pretty, intelligent and successful ladies are in today's news, one being from Maine.

Ashley Hebert is no longer a Bachelorette!  Ashley, who grew up in Madawaska and starred in the ABC dating reality show "The Bachelorette" was married this past weekend in Pasadena California to J.P. Rosenbaum.  She's 28 years old and he's 35.  They'll reside in the New York City area where she's a dentist.

If you remember, J.P. proposed to Ashley during season seven of "The Bachelorette".

And, there's a "Royal pregnancy"!  The former Kate Middleton and the current Duchess of Cambridge is expecting. Unfortunately Duchess Kate is experiencing "acute morning sickness" and has spent the past two days in King Edward VII Hospital in Central London.

Prince William and Kate were not expected to make the announcement until sometime in December, but her trip to the hospital warranted an explanation.

The Queen of England was told she would be a great grandma just yesterday.

Regardless if the baby is a boy or a girl, he or she will grow to be the King or Queen of England someday!
