The source also revealed that Grace's arrival had been met with nothing, but joy and the couple are overjoyed with the latest addition to their beautiful family.
News of Middleton's pregnancy first broke in December when it was reportedly revealed that the couple was looking forward to welcoming their little one.
Grace is now the fifth grandchild for Middleton's parents, Carole and Micahel. The newborn is also now a cousin to Prince William and Kate's three kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Pince Louis.
Though Pippa maintained a very low profile during her second pregnancy, it was quite the opposite when she was pregnant with her first child, Arthur.
At the time, Pippa opened up about how pregnancy forced her to change her weekly routine while also helping her find a way to remain fit and healthy.
Throughout both of her pregnancies, Pippa seemingly enjoyed tons of advice and help from her older sister Kate and their mom, Carole. The trio reportedly shares a great bond.
The sisterly bond between Kate and Pippa seemingly extends beyond sharing pregnancy stories and tips as the two have become well known for their distinct yet impeccable fashion style.
While Kate's status as a member of the royal family mostly relegates her to a conservative yet stylish form of dressing, Pippa is never afraid to diversify her taste. This is evident in her fashion evolution over the years.
From dresses to jeans to leggings, the popular socialite effortlessly pulls off whatever she wears, and without a doubt, she has made a name for herself in the fashion world.
Pippa reportedly once admitted to wanting three children in the past, with a boy coming first and a girl coming next. With Grace's arrival, the socialite's dreams are indeed coming true.
While it remains uncertain whether Pippa and her husband will have more children, for now, the new mom can enjoy teaching little Grace how to be a style icon just like her.
