On Monday Kate Middleton’s younger sister Pippa Middleton just welcomed her second baby with her husband James Matthews. And it seems that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are overjoyed at the news, with a source close to them saying: “The Duke and Duchess are absolutely overjoyed by the happy news.”
Reports from a family source said that Pippa gave birth to a healthy baby daughter on Monday March 15, at around 4:22am. The couple have already revealed the name of the baby-Grace Elizabeth Jane. “Mother and baby are doing well,” the source said. “She’s perfect, everyone is overjoyed at such a happy arrival.”
Pippa was seen enjoying a walk around London on Saturday, wearing a casual green coat that elegantly fit her baby bump. Pippa and James got married four years ago in May 2017, and they already have one child-the two-year-old Arthur.
With the arrival of Pippa and James’ second baby, Carole and Michael Middleton, Pippa and Kate’ parents, have become grandparents for the fifth time. They are grandparents to Kate and Prince William’s three, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, which we are sure are very happy to have another cousin to play with.
The birth of Pippa’s daughter came as a late Mother’s Day present, as she was born just one day after the U.K. holiday.
For the holiday, Kensington Palace released multiple pictures honoring multiple mothers. There was one photograph of Kate with her mother Carole, while others were of some of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis’ handy work. The trio made a cake for their mother Kate, as well as heartfelt cards in memory of Prince William’s late mother, Princess Diana.
The pregnancy was first confirmed by Carole in the April issue of Good Housekeeping. The Party Pieces founder was asked about what her hopes for 2021 were in the cover interview.h
Carole said: “I hope we see COVID-19 coming under control so all of us can have a more normal life. Hopefully this year, more people will get to celebrate their special occasions with friends and family.
“I also hope to see more of my family than I could last year, including, of course, my new grandchild.”
