It’s all happening in the world of Pippa Middleton.
She has just become an aunt for the third time, after Kate Middleton gave birth to a baby boy on April 23, but come October, it is reported that Pippa Middleton will become a mother for the first time.
The Sun on Sunday first reported that Pippa Middleton is pregnant, saying that she and husband James Matthew told the Royal family the news after having the 12-week scan. The couple is said to be ‘overjoyed’ at the news.
It comes during a difficult period for the family after Pippa’s father-in-law, James’s father David Matthews, was accused of raping a minor; allegations which he denies, saying they are ‘untrue and scandalous’.

Here is all you need to know about Pippa Middleton, including her net worth, husband James Matthews, pregnancy and sister Kate Middleton.
Who is Pippa Middleton?
Born on September 6, 1983, Pippa Middleton, real name Philippa, is the second of three children of Michael and Caren Middleton. She is the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton and entrepreneur James Middleton.
Pippa attended high-profile schools including St Andrew’s School, Downe House School and Marlborough College, before graduating with a degree in English Literature from the University of Edinburgh.
After graduating, Pippa worked in public relations before moving to event planning company Table Talk.
She later launched an online magazine called Party Times, which provided users with information about how to plan parties, theme ideas and more.
Pippa also worked for her family’s business Party Pieces, which helps people throw parties by providing supplies and themes.

Kate Middleton’s sister nearly stole the show at the 2011 Royal Wedding as the maid of honour, and whose Alexander McQueen dress, designed by Sarah Burton, caused a world-wide sensation, that nearly matched the ‘Kate effect’ for a time.
In 2012, Pippa published ‘Celebrate’, her book about how to entertain and host parties for ‘a year of British festivities for family and friends’. However, the book failed to perform well after many pointed out that the book contains very generic and obvious suggestions.
Pippa has also written for publications such as The Spectator, The Sunday Telegraph and was named contributing editor of Vanity Fair in 2013.

In April, just before Kate Middleton gave birth to a baby boy, it was reported that Pippa was pregnant and due to give birth in October 2018.
What is Pippa Middleton’s net worth?
Pippa Middleton’s net worth is estimated to be million (£716,425), according to Celebrity Net Worth.
The majority of that money derives from the £400,000 advance Pippa was paid for her 2012 book, 'Celebrate'.
In 2015, Pippa’s company PXM Enterprises, which manages her ‘publishing activities’, posted accounts revealing that Kate Middleton’s sister made over £200,000 between May 2013 and May 2014. However, in 2017, Pippa shut down the company.
Pippa’s net worth is considerably lower than that of her sister Kate’s or even of Suits actress and Prince Harry’s fiancee, Meghan Markle.
Who is James Matthews?
Pippa married financier James Matthews in May 2016. Matthews is the brother of ex Made in Chelsea star, Spencer Matthews.
Matthews had another brother, Michael, who died at the age of 22, on the way down from the Everest summit. At the time Michael became the youngest Briton to scale Mount Everest.
James Matthews's family owns the Eden Rock resort in St Barth, whose most expensive room reportedly costs £25,000. Matthews runs the hedge fund Eden Rock Capital Management.
What is James Matthews's net worth?
James Matthews's net worth is estimated to be at .6 billion (£2 billion), according to The Net Worth.
It is reported that Pippa Middleton's engagement ring set Matthews back £200,000, while the couple went on a honeymoon that cost £120,000.
