BRANFORD, Conn. (WTNH) -- The news of Kate's labor and the royal baby frenzy is reverberating all over Connecticut.
It's not just the exercise that has pulses pounding at Planet Fitness.
"It's week 3 and the world is literally waiting on edge for Kate to go into labor..."
On the TV's there is full coverage from London, and folks at Planet Fitness are sweating out the royal baby watch.
"If the news breaks while you're on this, are you going to be okay," asked News 8's Kent Pierce.
"I might have to get off the bike," said Madison resident Brittany Jackson.
"Because you're that excited," asked Pierce.
"That excited," Jackson replied.
"I think I'll be able to manage," said Guilford resident Nancy Cooney.
"Even if the news breaks while you're on this? You won't fall off," asked Pierce.
"I won't, I'll grab on tight," Cooney said.
"I don't know if I can go through the rest of the day without thinking about it," said Libby Riccio, of Branford.
News 8 sensed a little sarcasm mixed with the sweat.
"Are you the least bit excited at all," asked Pierce.
"No, not really," said Laura Feinn, of Guilford.
"Why not," asked Pierce.
"Eh...it's nice, but it's not world-breaking news I don't think," Feinn said laughing.
And all this for the descendant of a monarch we overthrew a couple hundred years ago.
"Around the 4th of July I think it was," said Madison resident Mark Riccio, "we kicked them out of the country."
Thousands of brave Americans fought to overthrow the tyranny of the British monarchy. The Honorable Roger Sherman signed the Declaration of Independence. He's buried in New Haven where, every 4th of July, they celebrate what he did.
However, despite that strained history with British royals, Americans still do care about the birth of a future monarch.
"And I really don't give a rat's rear end," said Mark Riccio.
Alright, not all Americans.
"Is the media making too much of it," asked Pierce.
"Yes, definitely," Libby Riccio said.
"You don't care," asked Pierce.
"I don't care," she said. "It's not my baby."
