Pippa Middleton and husband James Matthews have welcomed their second child together. 

The Duchess of Cambridge‘s younger sister gave birth to daughter Grace Elizabeth Jane Matthews at 4.22am this morning. The baby weighed 6lbs 7oz.

‘Mother and baby are doing well,’ a source told Hello! ‘She’s perfect, everyone is overjoyed at such a happy arrival.’ 

Pippa, 37, and James, 45, are already parents to two-year-old son Arthur. 

Grace’s middle names Elizabeth and Grace are a nod to her two grandmothers, Carole Elizabeth Middleton and Jane Matthews. Elizabeth might also be a subtle acknowledgement of the family’s royal ties.

The baby is the fifth grandchild of Pippa’s parents, Michael and Carole Middleton.  

Grace is cousin to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s three children, Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, who is almost two. 

She also has two cousins on her father’s side of the family: Theodore Frederick Michael, two, and Gigi Margaux Matthews, five months, the children of Made In Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews and his Irish model wife Vogue Williams.

Carole Middleton confirmed this month that her youngest daughter was pregnant again to Good Housekeeping magazine.

The excited mother of the Duchess of Cambridge told the magazine: ‘I hope to see more of my family than I could last year, including, of course, my new grandchild.’ 

Hedgefund billionaire James, brother of reality TV star Spencer Matthews, and author Pippa currently reside in a £17 million six-bedroom home in London.

The Matthews family owns the Eden Rock resort on St Barts, one of the region’s most exclusive hotels beloved by many famous faces.

Pippa and James tied the knot in 2017 at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield, the estate of former Conservative MP Richard Benyon. 

In 2018, Pippa welcomed baby Arthur in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital, the same place where sister Kate gave birth to all three of her children.

The socialite and columnist documented how she stayed active during her first pregnancy for Waitrose Weekend magazine revealing that little Arthur follows in the active family’s footsteps.

‘Now that Arthur is 11 months old and more mobile, I have been trying to come up with different activities to do with him,’ she wrote in September 2019.

‘I needed to find something more than just park walks in the pram. Our local baby gym has been a saving grace. It’s a big space full of fun, soft objects, playmats, stairs, balls, swings, mini trampolines and more to stimulate and physically engage babies and toddlers,’ she added.
