Pippa Middleton baby: EVERYTHING we know so far – gender, name and weight
PIPPA Middleton has given birth to a baby boy – the first child for her and husband James Matthews.
The younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge was seen entering the Lindo Wing, the same hospital her sister gave birth to her three children, on Monday, October 15.
It has since been confirmed Pippa gave birth at 1.58pm the same day.
Pippa’s pregnancy was confirmed in June, although speculation started as early as April, around the same time her sister Kate gave birth to her third child, Prince Louis.
Pippa and James have been married since May of 2017, and this is their first child together.
What is the gender of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews’ baby?
Pippa Middleton has given birth to a baby boy.
A spokeswoman for Pippa and her husband said the baby was born on Monday.
She said: “James and Pippa have had a baby boy.
“He was born Monday 15th October at 1.58pm, weighing 8lb and 9oz.
“Everyone is delighted and mother and baby are doing well.”
What will the baby be named?
Pippa Middleton and James Matthews have not confirmed the name of their newly arrived son yet.
However, bookies have guessed the couple will go for traditional names, like Pippa’s sister Kate did with her children; George, Charlotte and Louis.
Currently, the name Michael is in the lead at 5/2.
Michael is the name of Pippa and sister Kate’s dad, and would be a very sentimental choice.
Other names topping the odds are Alexander at 3/1, William at 7/2 and Joseph and James at 4/1.
The names Thomas, Frederick, Oliver, Peter and Ronald are also on the top ten list of names Pippa and husband James Matthews may go for.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s no surprise to see Michael head the betting now that the sex has been confirmed and while we wish mother and baby all the best, attention now turns to what name the happy couple will opt for!”
How much did the baby weigh?
The couple has confirmed their son weighed 8lb and 9oz.
