Pippa Middleton has finally confirmed she is expecting her first child.

The sister of Kate Middleton was rumoured to be expecting her first baby with James Matthews, after showing off a small bump at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding.

Finally confirming the news, Pippa, 34, said she thankfully hasn’t suffered from morning sickness.

“I was lucky to pass the 12-week scan without suffering from morning sickness. That meant I was able to carry on as normal.

“When I learned the happy news that I was pregnant I realised I needed to adjust my 4 to 5-day-a-week routine.

Speaking to Waitrose Kitchen magazine, Pippa said: “I’ve noticed my body change but through exercise I feel it’s being strengthened.

“I’m fanatical about sport and have looked at loads of books and websites on exercise during pregnancy but have been disappointed by the limited technical information what you can and can’t do.”

The active brunette added that she still has so many questions about how much exercise she can do while pregnant.

“This being my first pregnancy, I had so many questions I felt were still unanswered.

“I wanted to know things like, would I strain if I served in tennis, are strokes of swimming safe, can I still do a normal yoga class if I avoided certain positions? Could I still work my abs?

“I’ve noticed my body change and weight increase, but through effective exercise and sports I feel that it’s been strengthened to support a healthy pregnancy, birth and recovery.

“And ensure that post-baby, my old favourite jeans will still fit eventually!”
