Pippa Middleton‘s heart doubled in size when she welcomed her second child, Grace Elizabeth Jane, with husband James Matthews. The English socialite and her spouse, who are already parents to son Arthur, expanded their family in March 2021.
Page Six reported the news of Pippa’s pregnancy in December 2020, noting the British author and James were “thrilled” to welcome the little one into their life. The “entire family,” including Pippa’s parents, Carole Middleton and Michael Middleton, were “delighted” as well.
Pippa’s mother confirmed her daughter’s second pregnancy during a conversation with Good Housekeeping UK in March 2021. “I hope to see more of my family than I could last year, including, of course, my new grandchild,” she gushed to the outlet.
With Duchess Kate (née Middleton) as her big sister, we bet Pippa has received a ton of motherly advice throughout her pregnancy and childbirth. Now that baby Grace is here, this means Kate’s kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, have a new baby cousin!
Pippa and the British racing driver welcomed their first son, Arthur, more than a year after tying the knot in May 2017. Following his arrival, a royal spokesperson shared an official statement on behalf of Kate and her husband, Prince William.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are thrilled for Pippa and James,” the statement read. Arthur’s birth was also confirmed by Pippa’s representative in London. “He was born weighing 8 pounds and 9 ounces,” representative Jo Milloy told USA Today. “Everyone is delighted and mother and baby are doing well.”
Kate was by Pippa’s side throughout her entire first pregnancy. The two sisters are extremely close, so the beloved duchess was “giving Pippa lots of tips on what’s to come,” a source told Life & Style in 2018. “When they were younger, they’d always share stories about boys and school life. Now they’re sharing pregnancy stories!”
There’s no doubt Pippa and James are embracing their new lives as a family of four, but it’s hard not to wonder if the two are done having babies. Prior to starting their family, a previous source told Life & Style that Pippa “wants three children,” noting “she would love to have a boy first and then a girl.”
It looks like Pippa’s wishes have come true so far!
