Pippa Middleton

Kate Middleton's younger sister, Pippa Middleton, and her husband James Matthews welcomed their first child together on Oct. 15 -- a baby boy who was later revealed to be named Arthur.

“Everyone is delighted and mother and baby are doing well,” a rep told ET at the time. And just last month, Pippa, a big fitness advocate, revealed to Waitrose Kitchen magazine that little Arthur is already taking swimming lessons.

"Starting my son Arthur swimming at four months old has given him confidence and enjoyment in water," she told the magazine. "He's now six months old, and swimming is one of our favorite activities. The exercise helps guarantee sound daytime sleeps, and the movement has improved his digestion."
