Huge congratulations are in order!

Pippa Middleton has given birth to her first child with James Matthews.

The couple have welcomed a baby boy weighing 8lbs 9oz. There's no word on a name yet, but we're sure that we'll hear news of the baby's moniker soon enough.

The Duchess of Cambridge's sister was spotted entering the Lindo Wing with her husband on Monday, sparking speculation that the baby's arrival was imminent.

It's a year of baby fever for the royals and their extended family, as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are also expecting their first child next spring.

We bet George, Charlotte and (maybe) Louis are all super excited to meet their first cousin.

Congratulations again to Pippa and James on their new arrival!
