She’s reportedly expecting her first child with husband James Matthews, but fitness fanatic Pippa Middleton appears determined to have an active pregnancy.
Pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister leaving her gym in Chelsea last week, days before news of her ‘pregnancy’ emerged.
Pippa cut a sporty figure as she exited her workout session in black patterned leggings teamed with a grey sports jacket.
She shielded her eyes with dark sunglasses and appeared to have a trace of an enigmatic smile playing about her lips as she made her way to her Range Rover.
The 34-year-old cut a svelte figure in her workout gear, showing no hint of a baby bump as she emerged from the gym carrying a maroon folder under one arm.
However, according to sources, she is already into her second trimester having had her 12-week scan last week – and she and her husband James Matthews have apparently revealed to family and friends that they’re expecting their first child in October.
The couple are said to be ‘overjoyed’, The Sun on Sunday reports. MailOnline has contacted Pippa’s representatives for comment.

The happy news is no doubt hugely welcome after a difficult few weeks for the family following allegations of rape against her father-in-law David Matthews. He strenuously denies them, calling the claims ‘untrue and scandalous’.
The 74-year-old allegedly carried out two offences between 1998 and 1999, one in Paris and another on the Caribbean island of St Barts.
The Duchess of Cambridge ‘could not have been more delighted’ when she heard the news of her sister’s pregnancy, it is reported.
Kate herself is pregnant with her third child and was reportedly the first person to be told after James Matthews.

A friend apparently said the news had provided ‘much-needed happiness and light relief’ to the family.
The couple married in May last year. Pippa chose St Mark’s Church, Englefield, Berkshire, as the venue, seven miles from her family home.
She beamed with happiness as she displayed her figure in a fitted guipure lace gown by the British couturier Giles Deacon.
The couple hired a huge £100,000 glass marquee, shipped from Belgium and set up in the Middletons’ garden, to host their wedding breakfast and evening festivities. They drove in a green Jaguar E-Type from the Englefield Estate to the Middleton mansion.
Their courtship involved a decade of waiting, meticulous planning – and a dazzling campaign of gifts and treats that extended to her parents, too.
Thanks to the millions earned from Eden Rock Capital Management, the financial company named after his parents’ Caribbean hotel, James was in a position to woo Pippa in the most extraordinary style.
Even before they became an ‘item’, James had flown the whole Middleton clan to St Barts, and his parents’ hotel. He proposed atop a windswept mountain in the Lake District with a rock said to have set him back more than £200,000.
He was educated at Uppingham School in Rutland and won the British Formula Renault Championship in 1994 for Manor Motorsport.
James Matthews is the brother of former Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews, who served as best man during last year’s wedding.
The couple went on a £120,000 honeymoon which took them to Australia and French Polynesia.
Pippa’s wedding was attended by actress and TV presenter Donna Air with her boyfriend, Pippa’s brother James, while tennis superstar Roger Federer topped the guestlist with his wife Mirka.
Pippa first came to national attention at her sister’s wedding to Prince William in 2011
