Pippa Middleton mom, the first name of her baby finally revealed !

The name is also a nod to Pippa's father, Michael Middleton.

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the one-month's name and it seems like the name holds a special meaning for Pippa and her husband, James.

Only recently it became known that the couple named their first child Arthur Michael William. While the moniker hasn't cracked the list for top baby names just yet, after this weekend's announcement, we're willing to bet Arthur is about to rise in popularity. The name Michael likely pays homage to James' brother Michael Matthews, who passed away at age 22 after climbing Mount Everest in 1999.

Pippa gave birth to her first child weighing 8lb and 9oz at the Lindo Wing, at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, on 15 October.

The first cousin to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis is settling in with his proud parents since his arrival on October 15. Baby Arthur shares a name with the royal baby her sister and brother-in-law welcomed six months earlier.

The happy news was followed by a statement from Kate and Prince William saying they were "thrilled" for the couple.

As previously reported, Pippa Middleton confirmed her pregnancy in June 2018.

"[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.

Pippa reportedly put her occupation as "author" on the birth certificate.
