Congratulations Pippa and James!

Pippa Middleton has welcomed her third child - and second daughter - with husband James Matthews. According to People, Kate Middleton's younger sister gave birth to the baby girl a couple of weeks ago.

Pippa and James are already parents to three-year-old Arthur and one-year-old Grace. It's reported that Pippa gave birth to all three of her children in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's hospital, which is also where the Duchess of Cambridge chose for the birth of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Once James, 46, inherits the estate, both he and Pippa will also be handed down titles; the Laird of Glen Affric for James and Lady Glen Affric for Pippa.

Like her older sister, Pippa is a keen sportswoman, enjoying activities such as running, cycling, swimming, pilates and sailing. Impressively, her masters research will also be presented at a congress in Luxembourg later this year.

In a statement, Pippa spoke of her dedication to exercise and focus on how she thinks it can help children:

"I am passionate about sport and exercise and also love being with children. I wanted to find a topic that combined these two and felt that there wasn’t enough information, knowledge or focus on early years physical development for mums particularly. I wanted to learn to not only help my own children but to also continue work in the field to stress the importance of children moving from an early age."
