Pippa Middleton has welcomed her second baby with husband James Matthews.

Kate Middleton's sister is believed to have given birth to daughter Grace Elizabeth Jane in the early hours of Monday morning, weighing 6lbs 7oz.

A family source said: "She's perfect, everyone is overjoyed at such a happy arrival."

Grace is a sister to Pippa's first child Arthur Michael William, who was born on October 15, 2018.

Pippa, 37, married 45-year-old hedge fund manager James – the brother of reality TV star Spencer Matthews – in a lavish wedding ceremony at St Mark's Church near the Middleton family estate in Bucklebury Manor, Berkshire.

Her niece and nephew Princess Charlotte and Prince George were amongst the bride's attendants on the big day in May 2017.

Some royal fans think the choice of Elizabeth as a middle name could be a nod to the family's royal ties, while Jane may be a tribute to Pippa's mother-in-law, James' mum Jane.

The baby is the fifth grandchild of Pippa's parents, Michael and Carole Middleton.

Carole only recently confirmed her daughter was expecting another child when she told Good Housekeeping magazine: "I hope to see more of my family than I could last year, including, of course, my new grandchild."

When she was pregnant with her first child, the mum opened up about how she adjusted her lifestyle to fit in with the change in circumstances.

She said: "When I learned the happy news that I was pregnant I realised I needed to adjust my normal four to five-day-a-week routine and find a way of continuing my exercise safely throughout the three trimesters.

"So, the journey of pregnancy fitness began. I've noticed my body change but through exercise I feel it's being strengthened."

The Duchess of Cambridge's sister gave birth to son Arthur in the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in London, the same place where Kate welcomed all three of her royal children.
