Pippa Middleton’s mother Carole Middleton has confirmed her daughter's second pregnancy in an interview.

·   Pippa and husband James are already parents to son Arthur

She's already a mum to little Arthur, however Pippa Middleton’s mother has now confirmed in an interview that there is another one on the way for the 37-year-old.

This means that, as well as Kate’s children, George, Charlotte and Louis, Carole Middleton will be a grandmother to five children – so she’ll have her hands full.

When the news first leaked in December a source told Page Six ‘Pippa and James are thrilled, it’s fantastic news amid a difficult year. The entire family is delighted.’

Pippa and James became parents to their first child on 15th October 2018. Following in sister Catherine’s footsteps, Pippa gave birth in the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in London.

Pippa has spoken out about being a parent before in her column for Waitrose magazine, writing in 2019, ‘Starting my son Arthur swimming at four months old has given him confidence and enjoyment in water.

‘He's now six months old, and swimming is one of our favourite activities. The exercise helps guarantee sound daytime sleeps, and the movement has improved his digestion.’

The families have, of course, spent time apart because of the national lockdowns, even though son James Middleton is said to have moved in with his mother Carole. Sisters Kate and Pippa, like most of us, use video calls to keep in touch with each other and their mother.
