It looks like the Middletons will be toasting to a little more than just Christmas Day come December 25.
Pippa Middleton, the younger sister of Duchess Catherine, is pregnant with her second child according to a new report.
The 37-year-old, who is married to James Matthews is said to be "thrilled" about the impending arrival of her second child, Page Six confirms.
"Pippa and James are thrilled, it's fantastic news amid a difficult year. The entire family is delighted," a source told the publication.
The news was later confirmed by publications Harper's BAZAAR and HELLO!.

The pair currently share two-year-old son Arthur Michael William Matthews, who they welcomed in October 2018.
Pippa followed her elder sister's lead by giving birth at London's Lindo Wing, where she remained in the days following Arthur's birth.
It is likely she may choose the Lindo Wing to give birth to her second child given she and James continue to reside in London.
That said, Page Six also claims the pair are close to purchasing a 72-acre country estate in Berkshire - a spot not far placed from the Carole and Michael Middleton's home.

Pippa, who wrote a column in UK-based Waitrose magazine, was candid about her previous pregnancy, explaining her fitness routine whilst dealing with a growing bump.
Shortly before giving birth, she spoke about her preference for barre-inspired workouts.
"[It's] a form of exercise taken from ballet which involves the small, isolated movements that develop flattering muscle tone or so I hope," she said.
She explained she also liked swimming because it offers "a wonderful feeling of weightlessness."
"From personal experience, I'd confidently say I find it has been the most enjoyable and rewarding form of exercise since I found out I was expecting."
Going into her second pregnancy, it looks like Pippa will be well versed - a big congratulations to the Matthews clan!
