No one loves a royal pregnancy more than the Brits, and since neither Kate Middleton nor Meghan Markle has a bun in the oven at the moment, all eyes are on Pippa Middleton. Kate's younger sister is currently expecting her first child with husband James Matthews and, in keeping with the tradition set by her older sister, Pippa isn't rushing to learn the baby's sex just yet, People reports. During a recent sit-down with the U.K. talk show This Morning, James' brother, Spencer Matthews, revealed that the parents-to-be still don't know if they're having a boy or a girl.
After being asked by host Ruth Langsford whether he'll be the uncle to a niece or a nephew when the baby arrives this fall, Spencer admitted that he's just as in the dark as the rest of us. "They don't [know],” he said. "They're extremely private and, honestly, we know nothing." Those who keep up with the royal family will recognize Pippa's decision as the same one Kate made while expecting each of her three children. The Duchess of Cambridge kept the world guessing until after each little prince or princess had been born.
While Pippa has been secretive about many of the details surrounding her baby, she's spoken openly about her exercise regimen during her pregnancy. "When I learned the happy news that I was pregnant, I realized I needed to adjust my normal four- to five-day-a-week routine and find a way of continuing my exercise safely throughout the three trimesters," she recently wrote in her regular fitness column for Waitrose Weekend.
Pippa went on to explain that swimming is "the most enjoyable and rewarding" form of exercise while pregnant. "It's comforting to know that it's safe throughout pregnancy, and you don't need to adapt and change too much (unlike most other sports)," she wrote. "It's so good for you that you could swim every day–as long as you don't overexert yourself–right up until the end of the third trimester."
