Pippa Middleton, the sister of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has become a mother for the second time.

Pippa and her husband, James Matthews, welcomed a little sister for their two-year-old son Arthur early on Monday.

"Grace Elizabeth Jane Matthews was born around 4:22 a.m. this morning, weighing 6lbs 7oz," a family spokesperson said in a statement. "Mother and baby are doing well."

The newborn is a cousin for Princes George and Louis, and Princess Charlotte, the three children of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and her husband, Prince William.

Pippa, 37, and James, 45, wed in 2017.

The news of Pippa's pregnancy first emerged in December, but it wasn't confirmed until recently, when her mother, Carole, referenced the then-upcoming arrival of her latest grandbaby in an interview with Good Housekeeping U.K. magazine.

Reflecting on life in 2021 amid the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, Carole said, "I hope to see more of my family than I could last year, including, of course, my new grandchild."
