Pippa Middleton Has Given Birth To A Baby Boy

Baby fever is rife in the royal family right now.

Pippa Middleton, the sister of Kate Middleton the Duchess of Cambridge, has given birth to a baby boy.

The baby was born on Monday afternoon local time and a spokesperson for Middleton and her husband James Matthews said both Pippa and her baby are doing well.

Kensington Palace said Kate Middleton and Prince William are "thrilled" with the news. The news of Pippa's boy comes just a day after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they were expecting their first child.

This is a stark contrast to her older sister Kate, who has suffered acute morning sickness during all three of her pregnancies.

Pippa and James Matthews were married in May 2017.

There is no word yet on the name the couple will give to their new arrival.
