Pregnant Pippa Middleton Ready To Pop Checks into Hospital, Kate Will Soon Be Aunt
Pippa Middleton, 35, is preparing to welcome her first child sometime in October.
Middleton was photographed alongside her husband, James Matthews, walking into the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London.
While the British socialite waited until June to confirm her pregnancy, people speculated that Middleton was pregnant just weeks before her older sister, Kate Middleton, was due with her third child.
The exciting timing meant that both sisters could share in the joy of being pregnant at the same time.

Pippa confirmed her pregnancy with the release of a column in the British publication “Waitrose Weekend.”
In the column, Pippa wrote on the topic of exercising during pregnancy. She was photographed in workout attire, holding a pair of free weights.
“I’ve noticed my body change but through exercise I feel it’s being strengthened,” she wrote, according to Harper’s Bazaar.

Other than the article, Pippa and Matthews have kept details about the pregnancy to themselves.
Pippa seems to be following a pregnancy path that is similar to Kate’s in terms of choosing the same hospital and keeping the baby’s gender a secret.
St. Mary’s Hospital is the same hospital where Kate gave birth to all three of her children. Kate last frequented the hospital in April for the birth of her third child, Prince Louis.
Like Kate, Pippa and her husband have chosen not to reveal their baby’s gender until after the birth, Harper’s Bazaar reported. For now, fans will have to wait and enjoy speculating on possible names for a boy or girl.
According to Pippa’s brother-in-law, Spencer Matthews, not even Pippa herself knows the baby’s gender.
“They’re extremely private and honestly, we know nothing,” Spencer Matthews said in August.
Part of the fun of a pregnancy is the anticipation of surprise!
We have a feeling that the Duchess of Cambridge is well prepared to become an aunt and will be there to help guide her sister through those exhausting, often difficult newborn weeks.
