Mom-of-one Pippa Middleton is finally opening up about her life at home! After welcoming her son, Arthur Matthews, six months ago, with her husband, James Matthews, Pippa says her baby is already learning how to swim and is becoming a natural in the water.
“Starting my son Arthur swimming at four months old has given him confidence and enjoyment in the water,” Kate Middleton‘s little sister recently wrote in Waitrose Kitchen magazine, according to an Instagram fan page MiddletonMaven. “He’s now six months old, and swimming is one of our favorite activities. The exercise helps guarantee sound daytime sleeps, and the movement has improved his digestion.”
Pippa, 35, welcomed Arthur just a few months after Kate, 37, gave birth to her third royal baby, Prince Louis, in April 2018. Though Kate never revealed if Louis is learning how to swim, she might want to start putting him in classes after she reads the interview that Pippa conducted with professor Greg Whyte in the magazine.
“Children can be taught to learn to swim at any age,” he reportedly said. “There’s no real difference between taking your baby swimming in water that’s been disinfected by chlorine or a salt-based method. Open-water swimming, however, is not recommended as it may carry an increased risk of infection.”
Louis might not be a swimmer, but he has gotten really good at using his “little walker” around Kensington Palace. When Kate visited the Henry Fawcett Children’s Centre on Tuesday, March 12, she gushed to a couple of moms about her son’s new milestone.
“Louis just wants to pull himself up all the time,” she said. “He has got these little walkers and is bombing around in them.” If baby Arthur and Prince Louis get together for a playdate sometime, they might just teach each other a thing or two about their hobbies.
