When Pippa Middleton went to Prince Harry’s wedding last month, you wouldn’t think anything was really that off about her. Maybe that goofy little British hat that looks like wadded-up toilet paper, or that dress that looks like it was designed by the makes of Arizona Green Tea. As it turns out, something was out of the ordinary, and it was that she’s pregnant. Meghan Markle should really send Pippa a hand-written thank-you card for not wearing a tight bump-revealing dress to the wedding. Pippa’s round parts already stole the show at one royal wedding, it was kind of her not to do it a second time.
Pippa confirmed that she’s expecting her first child with her husband of a little over a year James Matthews in a column written for the UK’s Waitrose Kitchen magazine (via People). Pippa specified that she’s past the 12-week danger zone mark. She also said that she hasn’t suffered from any morning sickness. “Oh, how lovely for youuuuuuuu” thought three-time Hypermesis Gravidarum victim Duchess Kate.
But that doesn’t mean Pippa has had a perfect first trimester. She’s had to make some adjustments to her workout routine.
“When I learned the happy news that I was pregnant, I realized I needed to adjust my four to five-day-a-week [fitness] routine,” she wrote, noting that she kept her pregnancy a secret from her gym instructor until the “riskier months” were over.
She also wrote that she had so many questions, like if she was safe to serve in tennis, and if she could still work out her abs. But it will all be worth it if it means her “old favorite jeans will still fit” after she gives birth.
If Pippa’s baby shares her DNA for being fit, then Prince George better watch out. He probably feels like king of the castle now, but just wait till he’s forced to play with the leftovers after his little cousin starts racing him to the royal toy box and calling first dibs.
