When and where did Pippa Middleton have her baby?

James was pictured carrying two overnight bags as they entered the Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, West London on Monday.

The 35-year-old gave birth at the exclusive Lindo Wing, where her sister Kate Middleton gave birth to all three of her children.

Pippa and James were spotted visiting the wing, in St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, prior to their son's birth.

The hospital is just a stone’s throw from their £17 million mansion in Chelsea.

Prices start at £5,900-per-night for a standard room, while a deluxe will set you back £6,275.

A suite, where Kate is thought to have stayed, costs £7,500-per-night.

What will Pippa Middleton name her baby?

Pippa and James have remained tight-lipped about their baby son's name.

Pippa is already aunt to William and Kate's children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and their latest baby boy Prince Louis.

The couple could choose a family name such as Pippa's dad Michael - or James's - David.

Announcing the birth, the couple confirmed their son weighed 8lb and 9oz.

But they did not reveal what they had named their newborn baby boy.

Who is Pippa's husband James Matthews and when did they get married?

Matthews, 43, is a hedge fund manager and is also the older brother of former Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews.

He caught Pippa off-guard by popping the question to her in July 2016, less than a year into their relationship.

James proposed with a hefty octagonal diamond ring, which comes with a central 4-carat Asscher-cut diamond stone, and a price tag to rival sister Kate’s own luxury band.

The couple married on May 20, 2017, in a relaxed but lavish intimate ceremony at her local church, St Mark’s in Englefield.
