It's time to welcome a new little bundle of joy! Just months after Kate Middleton gave birth to her third royal baby, her younger sister, Pippa Middleton, welcomed her first child with husband James Matthews, and we couldn't be more excited. We're sad to see Pippa's adorable maternity style come to an end, but it's time to celebrate, because this lovely lady is finally a mom!

  • Pippa was spotted arriving at the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital in London earlier this week.

    And ... it's a boy! He was reportedly born Monday at 1:58 p.m. and weighed 8 pounds, 9 ounces. A rep told People, "Everyone is delighted and mother and baby are doing well."

    It was assumed that Pippa would decide to have her baby at St. Mary's after she and James were spotted visiting the spot earlier in October. Also, it would make sense that the Middleton sister would choose that particular hospital given that her older sister, Kate, has delivered all three of her kids in the Lindo Wing.

    Got to keep these things in the family, right?

  • News of Pippa's pregnancy started circulating back in April, but the royal-adjacent didn't confirm it until she wrote about it in a column in Waitrose magazine.

    And since then, Pippa has been (somewhat) open about her pregnancy journey -- as open as someone associated with the royal family could be. 

  • One of things Pippa did talk about openly was her pregnancy fitness routine.

    The Middleton sister stayed healthy all throughout her pregnancy by swimming, so we're certain her delivery went off without any issues. 

    Healthy pregnancy equals healthy baby!

  • There's definitely a lot going on in the royal family right now, but certainly they'll all take time to celebrate with Pippa and her family of three.

    We're sure Auntie Kate is the most excited out of all of them. Prince Louis and Pippa's new baby are just months apart, so they'll definitely grow up to be as thick as thieves. We see some epic royal playdates in their futures.

    But in the meantime, let's just hope the new mom is resting comfortably with her adorable little bundle. Congrats to Pippa and James!
