Pippa Middleton and 5 Other Celebs Who Just Announced Their Pregnancies

The royal sister-in-law is expecting her second child with husband James Matthews, her mother confirms.

The Middleton family is about to get bigger—again! This time, it's not mom of three Kate Middleton who's expecting, it's her younger sister, Pippa who's pregnant with her second child. Middleton matriarch Carole Middleton announced the good news in an interview with Good Housekeeping U.K., telling the magazine of her 2021 goals, "I hope to see more of my family than I could last year, including, of course, my new grandchild."

Despite her daughters' celebrity status, however, Carole admitted that she's just a normal grandma to her grandkids.

"I want to run down the hills, climb the trees and go through the tunnel at the playground," Carole told the magazine. "As long as I am able to, that's what I'll be doing."
