It's Official! Pippa Middleton Is Going To Become A Mom—She Shares Fitness Tips With Other Mommies-To-Be!
The 34-year-old is going through pregnancy for the very first time and everyone who's found out about the delightful news is head over heels for her and her husband, James Matthews.
She was rumored to be expecting for months, but she casually confirmed the news herself by writing a fitness column in monthly British publication, Waitrose Weekend.
In the guest column, she shared, "I was lucky to pass the 12-week scan without suffering from morning sickness. That meant I was able to carry on as normal," pretty much confirming pregnancy rumors her followers had been hanging onto all this time.
For anyone who's kept up with the little sister to the Duchess of Cambridge, they'll know that her choice of confirming her pregnancy in a fitness feature was rather apt; she's a known exercise and overall fitness buff who takes excellent care of her physique and diet.
She continued to explain how her pregnancy has affected her regular fitness routine and the ways she has modified her lifestyle to make room for a baby on the way. Never one to entirely give up exercise, she gamely shared tips with other women who are expecting by suggesting that they do "lunges, squats with light weights, and 'reverse flyes'" which are relatively less intense than typical gym workouts, but can still help with strength training.
“I work out for 45 minutes, three to four times a week depending on my energy levels, but ensured that the routines I did were lighter than usual," Pippa added. She further emphasized that listening to her body and paying attention to its limits is crucial in determining what feels right (and what doesn't) during each workout.
Overall, it looks like Pippa has found the perfect balance for her physical activities during the early stages of her pregnancy as she's looked nothing short of stunning in all her recent public appearances.
She attracted praise for her pastel floral outfit paired with a light blush-colored fascinator at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex' royal wedding last month, then stole the scene with a stunning red sun dress at the French Open which stylishly complemented James' springtime look.
Pippa's pregnancy announcement is another piece of great news for the British royal family that's enjoying a lot of great surprises this year. So far, they've enjoyed special moments like Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding, the engagement of Princess Eugenie and beau Jack Brooksbank (who are set to marry in the fall this year), the birth of Prince Louis, the Queen's 92nd birthday, and most recently, Pippa's pregnancy.
Congratulations to Pippa!
