Pippa Middleton and her husband James Matthews are reportedly expecting their first child in October, the Sun reported Saturday.
Middleton, the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, reportedly told family and friends about the exciting news after she had a 12-week scan last week. (RELATED: 20 Reasons To Celebrate Pippa Middletons Birthday [SLIDESHOW])

“When Pippa found out she was pregnant, she was obviously thrilled and utterly overjoyed,” a source shared about the wonderful news.
The Duchess of Cambridge, who is just days away from having her third child, reportedly was one of the first people she told and was “delighted.”
“Naturally, big sister Kate [Middleton] and parents, Carole and Michael, were the first people she told– James aside– and they could not have been more delighted,” the source said.
The good news also comes after a difficult time for the family after Matthews father, David Matthews, recently was accused of rape. He has denied the allegations, calling them “untrue and scandalous,” according to the Daily Mail.
Middleton and Matthews tied the knot last May at St Marks Church in Englefield, Britain.
