Arthur is going to be a big brother!

People has confirmed that Pippa Middleton, the younger sister of Kate Middleton, is expecting her second child with husband James Matthews.  The couple share two-year-old Arthur, whom they welcomed at Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital – the same place Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis were born.

"Pippa and James are thrilled, it's fantastic news amid a difficult year," a source told Page Six, who was first to report the news. "The entire family is delighted."

Though it is unclear if the Middleton family will get to celebrate the happy news together this year over Christmas amid Covid-19 restrictions, according to the publication, it seems Pippa and James are already making big plans for the future – 72-acre plans to be exact.

Rumour has it the couple are buying a country estate called Bucklebury Farm Park in Berkshire – located not too far away from the Middleton family home.
