Pippa Middleton’s baby’s name is a touching family tribute

Pippa Middleton’s baby’s name is a touching family tribute

Pippa Middleton and James Matthews welcomed a baby son in October but his name was kept under wraps until now.

People magazine are reporting that the middle name Michael may be honouring James' brother Michael, who tragically died age 22 while climbing Mount Everest, or he could be simply named for Pippa's dad Michael Middleton.

Inspiration for the second - William - is likely to come from Middleton's brother-in-law Prince William.

Middleton, who is listed as an author on her son's birth certificate, gave birth at St. Mary's Hospital's Lindo Wing.

In 2012, she released her first and only book Celebrate: A Year of British Festivities for Family and Friends.

So far, Middleton and Matthews have yet to comment on the speculation surrounding their baby name, but then again, they're also new parents to a baby who is less than a month old, so it's probably safe to assume that they have their hands full at the moment.

West has previously worked with Devlin, a well known artist and designer, on his Yeezus tour and Watch the Throne show with Jay-Z. Lorde , however, did not call out Kids See Ghosts by name on her Instagram story , but a picture can be worth a thousand words.


Arthur is the middle name of three prominent royals - cousin Prince Louis, uncle Prince William and even Prince Charles - so baby Arthur is joining a rather important circle!

The 35-year-old gave birth to her baby boy in October with a spokesperson telling Hello!

"James and Pippa have had a baby boy", it read.

Pippa was seen heavily pregnant at Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding days earlier. After Arthur's birth, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge issued a short statement congratulating Middleton. "Everyone is delighted and mother and baby are doing well".

The Mail on Sunday reported on November 11 that the couple chose Arthur Michael William for their first born-a three-part moniker that just may honor both Pippa's father and James' younger brother.

Matthews was spotted running into the hospital on the day after the birth apparently in the same clothes he arrived in the day before.
