It's a boy! Pippa and James Matthews celebrate the birth of their first child, a son, on Monday, October 15 at 1:58 P.M. GMT. He weighed in at 8 pounds and 9 ounces, Tweeted royal correspondent Rebecca English from The Daily Mail. "Everyone is delighted and Mother and baby are doing well," she wrote.
Pippa gave birth at the same hospital as her sister, Kate Middleton, for each of her children, at St. Mary's Hospital in London. In light of Meghan Markle's pregnancy announcement just yesterday, Kensington Palace is just buzzing with baby news.

The couple kept the sex of the baby a secret up until now, much like her sister and Prince William did with all of their kids. Pippa's brother-in-law, Spencer Matthews, just made a public statement in August saying, "They’re extremely private and honestly, we know nothing." Their NDA game is pretty impressive, we must say.
And that is a pretty hefty little baby boy to boot!— Rebecca English (@RE_DailyMail) October 16, 2018
The Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister confirmed her pregnancy in June 2018, despite the tabloids speculating non-stop since April after an "anonymous source" leaked the announcement. She dropped the news in the fitness column she writes for Waitrose Weekend, appropriately titled "Exercising During Pregnancy."
She wrote: "I’ve noticed my body change and weight increase, but through effective exercise and sports I feel that it’s being strengthened to support a healthy pregnancy, birth, and recovery."

They have yet to announce the baby's name, but we're betting on something equally as elegant as his cousins' Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
Keep the baby news coming!
