Pippa Middleton is a mama of two!
The younger sister of Kate Middleton welcomed her baby girl, Grace Elizabeth Jane, with husband James Matthews, 45, on Monday, March 15.
"She's perfect, everyone is overjoyed at such a happy arrival," an insider dished of Pippa's little ray of sunshine.
The lovebirds kept Grace's name tied to the family, as their daughter born at 4:22 a.m. and weighing 6 pounds, 7 ounces, The Royal Observer reported, shares a middle name with aunt Kate. Apart from Kate — who was born Catherine Elizabeth Middleton — little Grace shares the name with Kate's grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II.
Newborn Grace isn't the only one with a special connection to her royal family members. Pippa, 37, and James' two-year-old son Arthur shares a name with Kate, 39, and Prince William’s two-year-old son, Prince Louis, whose full name is Louis Arthur Charles.
Rumors of Pippa's pregnancy began to swirl in December. And while the brunette beauty tried to keep her pregnancy under wraps, Pippa's mother, Carole Middleton, confirmed that her daughter had a bun in the oven three months later. "I hope to see more of my family than I could last year, including, of course, my new grandchild," Carole told Good Housekeeping UK.
Pippa and James tied the knot in May 2017 at St. Mark's Church in Englefield.
During the time of her first pregnancy in 2018, Pippa documented how she stayed healthy and active in her Waitrose Weekend fitness column. After Arthur's arrival, Pippa continued to keep up with her column and shared how Arthur is following in her footsteps by staying active.
"Now that Arthur is 11 months old and more mobile, I have been trying to come up with different activities to do with him," she explained in an article in September 2019.
"I needed to find something more than just park walks in the pram. Our local baby gym has been a saving grace," Pippa added, noting that the baby gym has "a big space full of fun, soft objects, playmats, stairs, balls, swings, mini trampolines and more to stimulate and physically engage babies and toddlers."
"Arthur burns lots of energy in this safe environment and learns many physical skills," she continued. "I have also noticed him building his confidence with each visit."
