Pippa Middleton's Baby Name Has Been Revealed, According To Reports

Share

Pippa Middleton and James Matthews have named their son Arthur, according to reports.

Middleton welcomed her first child at the same Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital where her sister and Prince William's children were born.

The inspiration for his other middle name is thought to be from the new mum's brother-in-law Prince William.

The name Michael is a tribute to both Pippa's father and James' younger brother who tragically died while climbing Mount Everest in 1999.

There's also no word on where the name "William" came from, but there doesn't necessarily have to be a familial tie there - it might just be a name that the couple liked... unless he's named after Uncle Prince William, of course.

The Mail On Sunday has reportedly cited the birth certificate for baby Arthur and Pippa's occupation was listed as author on the document.

The newest arrival to the Middleton-Matthews family will also have plenty of cousins to play with. However, the Dugess of Cambridge's younger sister kept the name a secret.

Little Arthur was born October 15 in the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital, which is where his cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis were also born.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are thrilled for Pippa and James", Kensington Palace shared in a short statement.

"James and Pippa have had a baby boy", it read.
