White House extends congrats to Will and Kate

The royal couple is expecting a baby -- and the White House is extending its blessings.

"On behalf of everyone here in the White House, beginning with the president and the first lady, we extend our congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the welcome news this morning out of London, that they are expecting their first child," Press Secretary Jay Carney said at today's briefing.

Asked if the First Couple had any parental advice for the royal couple, Carney said he hadn't talked with them, "but I know they both feel that having a child is one of the most wonderful parts of their lives, so I'm sure that will be the same for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge."

And he added, that a "commoner" at the White House was also up for congratulations: Brian Deese of the National Economic Council and his wife had a child, Adeline Sutton Deese, over the weekend.
