Pippa Middleton, Kate Middleton's younger sister, has followed in her footsteps and announced that she too was carrying a child.
The 34-year-old is expecting her first baby with James Matthews. But, unlike her sister, who was rushed to the hospital this Monday, April 23, 2018, Pippa is only 12 weeks pregnant.
The British socialite was thrilled when she heard the good news and didn't waste any time sharing it with her loved ones, as reported by The Sun.
The revelation was first made to James, then Kate and their parents, Carole and Michael, who were delighted to learn that they would be grandparents for the fourth time.
Pippa married 42-year-old James last year, in a private ceremony that took place at St. Mark's Church, in Englefield, England. The guest list featured mainly family and friends.
After the ceremony, they traveled to French Polynesia and Australia as part of their honeymoon, where they discussed they wish of starting a family-
According to Life&Style, an insider revealed that the couple wanted to have three children.
The same unidentified insider shared that it was Pippa's wish to give birth to a baby boy first, then a girl. The pattern seems to copy her sister's pregnancies to the detail: first, Kate gave birth to Prince George in 2013, then, in 2015, to Princess Charlotte.
While Pippa still has a long way to go when it comes to her pregnancy, Kate is almost at the finish line. She was accompanied by her husband, Prince William, to St. Mary's Hospital at around 6 a.m. UK time.
But not everything is good news. Recently, David Matthew's, James' father, was accused of assaulting a woman in the 80s, as well as raping a child on two occasions: 1998 and 1999. The 73-year-old could spend up to 20 years in prison if proved guilty.
