The Middletons have a new member!

Pippa Middleton - the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge - has given birth to a baby boy.

The child was born on Monday (October 15) at 1.58pm, weighing 8lb and 9oz.

A spokeswoman for Pippa and her husband James Matthews said: "Everyone is delighted and mother and baby are doing well.".

A Kensington Palace spokesman said Prince William and Kate Middleton were "thrilled" for the couple.

Pippa was recently seen at the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, and the baby's arrival comes just a day after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle revealed they are too expecting a baby.

Pippa announced her pregnancy back in June, in her fitness column for Waitrose Weekend magazine.

She married husband James - the brother of reality TV star Spencer Matthews - in May last year.
