After months of rumors, Pippa Middleton has confirmed she's pregnant with her first child.

In a new fitness column for UK outlet, Waitrose Weekend, Middleton wrote she had better luck in her first trimester than her sister, Kate Middleton, who suffered from severe morning sickness.

"I was lucky to pass the 12-week scan without suffering from morning sickness," Pippa wrote. "That meant I was able to carry on as normal."

"This being my first pregnancy, I had so many questions I felt were still unanswered," the fitness addict continued. "I wanted to know things like, would I strain if I served in tennis, are strokes of swimming safe, can I still do a normal yoga class if I avoided certain positions? Could I still work my abs?"

"When I learned the happy news that I was pregnant I realized I needed to adjust my 4 to 5-day-a-week routine," she went on. "I’ve noticed my body change but through exercise I feel it’s being strengthened. I’m fanatical about sport and have looked at loads of books and websites on exercise during pregnancy but have been disappointed by the limited technical information what you can and can’t do."

"I’ve noticed my body change and weight increase," Pippa added, "but through effective exercise and sports I feel that it’s been strengthened to support a healthy pregnancy, birth and recovery... And ensure that post-baby, my old favorite jeans will still fit eventually!"

Middleton and her husband, James Matthews, wed on May 20, 2017 at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield, London.

The good news comes just six weeks after Kate gave birth to her third child with Prince William, Louis.
