Let the baby bump watch commence! Pippa Middleton was spotted in the Chelsea section of London on Sunday, May 13, where she sported her best accessory to date — her growing belly.
The 34-year-old writer was glowing as she took a stroll — just days before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding on May 19 — in a black trench coat over a burgundy dress that she paired with black tights and black flats. Middleton looked casual as she wore her dark hair pulled back as a few front pieces blew in the wind.
The outing comes just three weeks after The Sun first reported on April 21 that Middleton and her husband, James Matthews, are expecting their first child. According to the British outlet, the couple had just told their loved ones the happy news of their expanding family following her 12-week scan.
Middleton wed the 42-year-old hedge fund manager in a gorgeous May 2017 ceremony in front of 200 friends and family at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield, Berkshire, in the U.K. The beaming bride walked down the aisle in a white lace gown by British fashion designer Giles Deacon, while her husband wore a classic black tux.

A source close to Middleton told Us Weekly in August 2017 that the couple were “trying for a baby.” The insider noted that “starting a family is something they’ve spoken about since long before they got married.”
The news of Middleton’s pregnancy came just two days prior to elder sister Duchess Kate giving birth to her third child with Prince William. The Duke, 33, and Duchess welcomed baby boy Louis Arthur Charles at St. Mary’s Hospital in London on April 23.
