The Duchess of Cambridge's sister Pippa Matthews (née Middleton) has given birth to her first child!

No name has been announced so far, but a couple of the names Pippa and her husband James could go for are their father's names: Michael and David respectively.

Both Pippa and the baby are reportedly doing well.

Middleton, 35, first came to public attention when she acted as maid of honour at the 2011 wedding of her sister Kate to Prince William, who is second in line to the British throne.

The very pregnant author and fitness columnist didn't let her enormous belly stop her from looking as stylish as ever at the big event, donning a striking green dress, matching hat, and sky-high black stilettos.

Despite having a Duchess for an aunt, Pippa Middleton's son will not have a Royal title because he is not in line to the throne.

In her recent Waitrose Weekend column, Pippa spoke about her pregnancy, saying, "As the final month nears and the bump grows prouder each day, movement is certainly getting more awkward".

Pippa, who became a household name after serving as Kate's bridesmaid during the Royal Wedding in 2011, married hedge fund manager James previous year. His brother is former Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews. "Now they're sharing pregnancy stories!" the source said.

The new cousin for Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis was born at 1.58 pm and weighed 8 pounds and 9 ounces.

Meghan and Harry announced their happy baby news on Monday, shortly before Pippa was seen arriving at the Lindo Wing.
