How did Pippa announce she was pregnant?

After weeks of speculation that was shrouded by sister Kate's birth to Prince Louis, Pippa confirmed her pregnancy in her fitness column for Waitrose Weekend.

She titled her piece 'exercising during pregnancy', and shared the joy she felt in the first trimester - along with the challenges she faced to adjust her workout regime.

What has Pippa Middleton said about being pregnant?

Pippa revealed in Waitrose Weekend that she had managed to get through her first trimester without any morning sickness, unlike sister Kate, who has suffered from severe hyperemesis gravidarum.

She wrote: "I was lucky to pass the 12-week scan without suffering from morning sickness.

"That meant I was able to carry [on] as normal and continue my sports. Who knows what the next few weeks have in store."

Pippa also revealed she worked hard to alter her workout regime to benefit her pregnancy, revealing: "I've noticed my body change but through exercise I feel it's being strengthened."

She explained that exercises such as lunges and squat are ideal for pregnant women.

What will Pippa Middleton name her baby?

Pippa and James have kept the gender of the baby under wraps, but it is rumoured that she will favour a traditional name.

Her and Kate's parents are called Carole and Michael, whilst James's are David and Jane, so if they plan to give the tot a sentimental moniker these could well be favourites.

Bookies are currently favouring Michael for a boy, with odds at 3/1 or Catherine for a girl - at 9/2.
