Pippa Middleton is reportedly pregnant with her first child - and big sister Kate is said to be delighted!

How lovely that the two sisters will be able to watch their children grow up together.

With Kate Middleton due to give birth to her third baby any day now, it has emerged that her younger sister Pippa Middleton is reportedly pregnant too.

According to the Sunday Express Pippa Middleton has told her close friends and family that she and husband James Matthews are expecting their first child, and the baby is due in October.

Most couples wait until the 12-week mark to share their happy news, and Pippa is said to have shared her news after her 12-week scan.

The Sunday Express went on to report that a friend of Pippa's had said the Duchess of Cambridge "could not have been more delighted".

"Naturally, big sister Kate and parents, Carole and Michael, were the first people she told — James aside — and they could not have been more delighted."

Pippa and James have always known they wanted children.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte were part of the wedding party at Pippa and James' May 2017 wedding.

As far back as three years ago, Pippa is said to have started getting broody, after her sister Kate gave birth to Prince George.

"Kate's pregnancy changed Pippa's whole outlook," said a friend. "In the past, she hadn't really thought about having children, but now it is playing on her mind."

Pippa is said to love being an auntie to Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and at one point even had an image of Kate and George as her phone screen saver.

We wish Pippa and James a huge congratulations! And how lovely that Pippa and Kate will be able to watch their children grow up together.
