Pippa Middleton Welcomes a Baby Boy with Husband James Matthews

Pippa Middleton Welcomes a Baby Boy with Husband James Matthews

Pippa Middleton welcomed her first child with husband James Matthews.

The couple welcomed a baby boy on Monday at 1:58 p.m., local time, weighing 8 lbs. 9 oz., PEOPLE confirms.

“Everyone is delighted and mother and baby are doing well,” her representative tells PEOPLE.

The newest addition to the family makes her older sister, Kate Middleton, an aunt for the first time. The royal mom of three likely has plenty of sage advice (and newborn clothes!) to pass on to her younger sister, who was one of Prince Louis’ very first visitors after his birth in April.

Pippa followed in the footsteps of her royal big sister by giving birth in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital — the same place where Kate and Prince William welcomed all three of their royal children.

The new mom is kicking off a baby boom. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced on Monday that they are expecting their first child in the spring.

A source previously told PEOPLE that Pippa and her husband, James, are looking forward to settling down and “having children and leading a quiet life.”

And their new baby will have plenty of little playmates. In addition to cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, Matthews’ younger brother, Spencer Matthews, welcomed his first child, a son, with his wife, model Vogue Williams, in early September.

Pippa, 35, and James, 41, tied the knot last year on May 20 at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield. Her royal nephew and niece, George and Charlotte, served in the bridal party.

Middleton confirmed her pregnancy in a June column for the U.K. supermarket monthly Waitrose Kitchen magazine. The then-expectant mom revealed that she did not battle severe pregnancy sickness, or Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG), unlike Princess Kate.

“I was lucky to pass the 12-week scan without suffering from morning sickness. That meant I was able to carry on as normal,” she wrote.

She stayed active throughout her pregnancy and documented her fitness regime in her ongoing column.

“I’ve noticed my body change, but through exercise I feel it’s being strengthened,” she wrote. “I’m fanatical about sport and have looked at loads of books and websites on exercise during pregnancy, but have been disappointed by the limited technical information what you

Watch an Adorably Nervous Prince Harry Talk About His and Meghan Markle's 'Upcoming Baby'

Prince Harry has opened up for the first time about sharing the exciting news that he and wife Meghan Markle are expecting their first child together.

Speaking at a reception at the end of the couple’s first day in Sydney, Australia, Harry said that he and Meghan couldn’t think of a “better place” to tell the world of their baby joy.

At the event at Admiralty House, where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are staying, Harry, 34, thanked Australia for the” incredibly warm welcome” they’d received and the “chance to meet Aussies from all walks of life.”

“We also genuinely couldn’t think of a better place to announce the, er, upcoming baby,” Harry said, looking over to Meghan. Appearing slightly nervous, Harry added, “whether it’s a boy or a girl.”

Kensington Palace made the announcement on Monday that Meghan, 37, is expecting the couple’s first child only hours after the parents-to-be touched down in Sydney.

And, as they stepped out for a series of engagements — from a visit to the zoo to a walkabout in the center of Sydney — they were mobbed by well-wishers.

The royal couple was also given their first official baby gifts by the Governor General Peter Cosgrove and his wife, Lady Lynne Cosgrove.

“That’s so cute, it’s our first baby gift!” Meghan, 37, said in PEOPLE’s Facebook Live video, as she received a fluffy stuffed kangaroo (complete with a baby joey!) and fleece Ugg booties.

The couple’s 16-day tour will take them through Australia, into Fiji and Tonga and to New Zealand.

Hailey Baldwin Says She's 'Blown Away' By Everything Husband Justin Bieber Does

Hailey Baldwin Says She's 'Blown Away' By Everything Husband Justin Bieber Does

Hailey Baldwin secretly tied the knot with husband Justin Bieber back in September and she’s still feeling that newlywed bliss. In a new interview with Harper’s BAZAAR, Baldwin opened up about married life and how she’s keeping grounded in the spotlight.

“He is incredible,” Baldwin, 21, raved in the new issue. “He crushes everything. Every song, every feature. It’s crazy to see what he does. I’m always blown away.”

Bieber, 24, is currently taking a hiatus from releasing new music to focus on his new wife, and she’s trying to stay centered despite the craziness around her.

“Over the past year, I’ve had more attention on me than I’ve ever had in my life,” she revealed, saying she’s taking time to focus on herself to recharge. “It’s easy to not think about your mental health or your physical health because you keep pushing, pushing, pushing. Before this year, I wasn’t balancing anything.”

While some celeb couples solidify their love through matching tattoos (she has BFF tattoos with Kendall Jenner and cousin Ireland Baldwin) she’s not rushing to get any Bieber-related ink.

“I want more, but I’m keeping space for my kids’ names, and certain sentimental things, and I don’t want to fill all the cute spots before … I get there,” she says about her tattoo collection.

Baldwin is featured in the magazine’s “Daring” issue, where, fittingly, she models a selection of “daring” outfits in out-of-the-ordinary locations. From a skimpy two-piece with slippers in the supermarket (perhaps a nod to Bieber’s love of wearing hotel slippers in public?), to a Fendi logo one-piece and matching bucket hat at a food counter, her outfits are unique, just like her personal style.

“I’m obsessed with big, clunky leather jackets,” she shares about her tomboy-inspired style. “One of my favorites is a men’s Balenciaga piece. I’ve always thought there was something really fun about a lanky girl in very boyish clothing. I love dresses with sneakers.”

Prince Harry Says He's 'Very Excited' to Introduce Meghan Markle to Australia on First Royal Visit

Prince Harry Says He's 'Very Excited' to Introduce Meghan Markle to Australia on First Royal Visit

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are wrapping their jam-packed first day of their Australian tour with a royal reception.

Australian Governor-General Peter Cosgrove and his wife, Lady Cosgrove, hosted the expectant parents during a Tuesday afternoon reception at Admiralty House. The event was attended by Australians from a broad range of sectors, including charity and community, business and industry, arts and culture, and sport and entertainment.

For the event, Meghan switched things up from her earlier look, opting for a forest green pleated button-up shirtdress by American designer Brandon Maxwell. She completed the look by pulling her hair into an updo and added a pair of nude pumps.

The former Suits star previously wore a yellow sheath dress by Maxwell in July for a London reception celebrating young leaders around the Commonwealth. It was the first time Meghan was seen in a bright yellow hue.

It was also the first time she wore a sleeveless look at an official royal event, as it’s rare for royal women to show their arms at public engagements.

During Harry’s opening remarks, which he began by greeting the crowd with a very Australian “G’day,” the prince shared his excitement to be back in Australia alongside his new wife, who he noted was visiting for the first time.

“I’m very excited to show her this incredible country of yours,” he explained in footage captured by Nine News Australia, before recapping their day and upcoming events.

As Harry spoke in the country’s vernacular and cracked a few Australian jokes, Meghan watched from the side and rested both hands on her belly.

“We’re both absolutely delighted to be here,” he said. “Thank you for the incredibly warm welcome and the chance to meet so many Aussies from all walks of life.

Chris Evans Slams Piers Morgan for Calling Daniel Craig 'Emasculated Bond' for Using a Baby Carrier

Chris Evans Slams Piers Morgan for Calling Daniel Craig 'Emasculated Bond' for Using a Baby Carrier

There will be no-dad shaming on Chris Evans’ watch.

On Monday, Piers Morgan tweeted a photo of Daniel Craig carrying his daughter Ella in a baby carrier — which the outspoke columnist called a papoose — in New York City.

“Oh 007.. not you as well?!!! #papoose #emasculatedBond,” Morgan wrote, seemingly implying the James Bond actor should be carrying Ella in his arms.

In response, the Captain America: The First Avenger star fired back at the TV host, 53, defending.

“You really have to be so uncertain of your own masculinity to concern yourself with how another man carries his child,” Evans, 37, tweeted. “Any man who wastes time quantifying masculinity is terrified on the inside.”

Morgan later fired back, “Captain America wouldn’t wear a papoose.”

In addition to Evans, many social media users were offended by Morgan’s tweet especially his use of the word papoose, which is a term used to describe a Native American child. It is also a British term for a baby carrier.

In an attempt to explain himself, after a fan slammed him by saying, “Imagine believing carrying your own baby in public is emasculating,” Morgan wrote, “He’s not carrying it, that’s my point. He’s using an emasculating papoose. James Bond would never use a papoose to carry his babies.”

He later tweeted, “Carrying a baby is harder work, but worth it for the unashamedly masculine joy of NOT Wearing a papoose.”

Wearing a papoose doesn’t mean you ‘care’ more about your kids.. https://t.co/fF2w9lpSI2

However, a number of fathers then shared photos of themselves using baby carriers, proving it’s pretty common.

Nonetheless, Morgan refused to succumb to the idea adding, “Wearing a papoose doesn’t mean you ‘care’ more about your kids..”

He then posted a picture of himself in a tux and suggested he should play bond.

“One thing’s clear after tonight’s ferocious Papoose-gate debate: we need a new James Bond. A 007 who looks sharp in a tux & wouldn’t be seen dead in a papoose….” the British presenter wrote.Read more: https://people.com/movies/chris-evans-slams-piers-mogran-dad-shaming-daniel-craig-baby-carrier-emasculated-bond/
