Pippa Middleton is reportedly pregnant with her second child. 

Congratulations look to be in order to the Middleton family, who are set to have another member arriving in the New Year.

According to reports, Pippa Middleton is pregnant with her second child, who will be a little brother or sister to son Arthur, who is now two years old. 

“Pippa and James are thrilled, it’s fantastic news amid a difficult year. The entire family is delighted," a source told Page Six. “The entire family is delighted.”

The family are yet to officially announce the news. 

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

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 new baby will be fifth grandchild for Pippa's parents, Carole and Michael Middleton. We're sure it will be a very merry Christmas for the family, albeit different to previous years, after this happy news.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
