Pippa Middleton, the sister of Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, has welcomed her first child with husband James Matthews, Kensington Palace said on Tuesday.
“James and Pippa have had a baby boy. He was born Monday 15th October at 1.58pm, weighing 8lb and 9oz. Everyone is delighted and mother and baby are doing well,” a Kensington Palace spokesman said.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge [Prince William and Kate Middleton] are thrilled for Pippa and James,” Kensington Palace said in a statement.
The 35-year-old author and columnist had married hedge fund manager James Matthews, 43, last year and their first child was born at the famous Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in London on Monday.
The little boy is the cousin of Britain’s future King Prince George, five, his brother Prince Louis, five months, and their sister Princess Charlotte, three.
According to sources, the couple are yet to reveal what they have decided to name their new-born baby boy.
Pippa announced her pregnancy in June in her fitness column for Waitrose Weekend magazine.
“I was lucky to pass the 12-week scan without suffering from morning sickness, adding, that meant I was able to carry as normal and continue my sports,” Pippa wrote.
The new arrival comes just a day after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle revealed they are expecting a baby next spring.
