WASHINGTON (AP) — The royal baby watch extends into the White House.

Spokesman Jay Carney says that President Barack Obama and his family, like many Americans, "wait with anticipation" for the birth of the British royal heir.

Carney tells reporters that the Obamas wish Prince William, his wife, Kate, and all of Britain well on the "pending momentous occasion."

Carney isn't commenting about what gift the Obamas plan to send the baby.
