It's a big year for the Middletons! Not only did Kate recently welcome baby Louis, but she's also getting set be become an auntie, after it was revealed that her little sister, Pippa Middleton, is pregnant with her first child.
According to , Pippa and her financier husband James Matthews are expanding their little family. An insider told the newspaper that the couple broke the news to their family in April, after Pippa's 12-week scan.
And Pippa has finally confirmed the happy news in her new fitness column for Waitrose Weekend. Congrats, Pippa!
"I was lucky to pass the 12-week scan without suffering from morning sickness. This being my first pregnancy, I had so many questions I felt were still unanswered.
"I wanted to know things like — would I strain if I served in tennis? Are all strokes of swimming safe?
I do yoga twice a week and it's totally transformed my body and health
"Can I still do a normal yoga class if I avoided certain positions? Could I still work my abs?
"It's particularly hard in the early months when you don't really want to share the news with everyone, not even your class instructor.
"I've noticed my body change and weight increase — but through effective exercise and sports I feel that it's being strengthened to support a healthy pregnancy, birth and recovery."
She did, however, admit that she's given up running, revealing: "I stopped running — not because I read it was unsafe, just because I rather liked the idea of giving my body (and growing baby) a rest from pavement pounding."
We're happy to hear that Pippa's pregnancy is going well.

Here's how the famous whip themselves into shape
Kate was apparently one of the first people to hear about the news and she "could not have been more delighted" for her little sister.
A friend of the family said: "When Pippa found out she was pregnant, she was obviously thrilled and utterly overjoyed. 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. It’s been a tough few weeks for the two families, so this has provided some much-needed happiness and light relief."
The news came after James Matthews' younger brother, Spencer Matthews, and his fiancée Vogue Williams, announced they are expecting their first child. There must be something in the water at the Matthews' house.
Pippa and James tied the knot on May 20 at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield. The pair met in 2006 on the Caribbean island of St. Barts but only became official in 2014.
