Pippa Middleton Is Expecting Her Third Child with James Matthews, According to Report

It looks like 3 is the magic number in the Middleton family. While Kate Middleton is mother to Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, it was just reported that her younger sister, Pippa, is now expecting her third child as well.

The news was first speculated last night when Pippa attended the Platinum Party at the Palace and seemed to have her arms wrapped around a baby bump while she sported a lime green, long-sleeve dress from ME+EM London.

Now, PEOPLE reported that multiple sources have confirmed the news of Pippa's pregnancy, but a representative declined the publication's request for comment.

Pippa and her husband, James Matthews, already have a son named Arthur, who was born in October of 2018. Meanwhile, the pair welcomed their daughter, Grace, in only March of 2021.

The couple have been married since 2017, and according to Us Weekly, they first met all the way back in 2007 at the luxury Eden Rock hotel. However, there weren't rumors of them dating until years later, in 2012, when the two were spotted getting dinner together. Yet, Pippa would end up dating Nico Jackson for three years, until eventually she and Matthews started dating and then got engaged in 2016.

When Pippa was pregnant with her last child, it was actually her mom, Carole, who confirmed the news in an interview with Good Housekeeping. “I hope to see more of my family than I could last year, including, of course, my new grandchild,” the Middleton matriarch said.

Of course, with the excitement of the Platinum Jubilee festivities this weekend, we can see why Pippa and Matthews might be keeping the news hush-hush. But here's hoping we get official confirmation soon (so we can send our formal congrats).
