Princess Mary, 45, is already a mum to Christian, 11, Isabella, 10, and six-year-old twins Vincent and Josephine.
The source told New Idea Princess Mary was ready for a new bundle of joy now that her youngest children are in school.
‘No one saw this coming!’ the source reportedly said. ‘But of course everyone’s very happy – now the twins are at school she felt she was finally ready for another one.’
Earlier this month, it appeared as if the Australian-born princess may have had something on her mind as she was pictured looking intently at her Gianvito Rossi nude heels at Copenhagen airport while waiting to meet the Crown Prince of Japan with her husband Prince Frederik.
Dressed in an oriental-inspired floral Erdem gown, at one point, the Princess appeared momentarily distracted, staring downwards with her hands clasped across her beige handbag and gloves.

The Prince and Princess famously met in a Sydney bar called the Slip Inn during the 2000 OIympics.
The then-28-year-old Mary had no idea she was talking to a royal at the time.
‘The first time we met we shook hands I didn’t know he was the prince of Denmark,’ she has previously said. ‘Half an hour later someone came up to me and said, “Do you know who these people are?”‘
The pair got engaged in October 2003 and married at Copenhagen Cathedral in May 2004 – with Mary dressed in a gown by Danish designer Uffe Frank.
‘From today, Mary is mine and I am hers,’ Prince Frederik said at the altar. ‘I love her and I will protect her with all my love.’
