Congratulations are in order for Pippa Middleton and her husband, James Matthews, who reportedly just welcomed their second child!

According to People, Kate Middleton's younger sister gave birth to a baby girl early this morning and, thankfully, both mother and child are doing well. Luckily for royal enthusiasts, we've already got a name—and it has an interesting connection to both Queen Elizabeth and the Duchess of Cambridge.

The newborn's full name? Grace Elizabeth James. This means that Pippa's daughter and Kate (born Catherine Elizabeth Middleton) actually share the same middle name. Better yet, Grace also shares a name with Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth.

A source revealed to People, "She's perfect. Everyone is overjoyed at such a happy arrival." 

This is Pippa and Matthew's second child, in addition to their 2-year-old son, Arthur Michael William Matthews. The royal newborn is also the fifth grandchild of Carole and Michael Middleton and cousin to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Pippa's mother previously confirmed the news of her second pregnancy during an interview with Good Housekeeping U.K. She said, "I hope to see more of my family than I could last year, including, of course, my new grandchild." 

Congrats again to the happy family!
