Pipppa Middleton has finally confirmed that she and husband James Matthews are expecting their first child.
The 34-year-old opened up about her first trimester in a guest column for Waitrose magazine. “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 on what you can and can’t do,” she penned, later explaining that she’s needed to tweak her workout regime to accommodate her changing body. “And this ben my first pregnancy, I had so many questions I felt were still unanswered.”
Middleton added that because she and Matthews, 42, kept their pregnancy under wraps during the “early months,” she couldn’t turn to fitness instructors for guidance and she had to create her own routine. “So I decided to use my own initiative and adapted my current exercise routine, adjusting my the weight and intensity to what felt right for me,” she explained. “I work out for 45 minutes, three to four times a week depending on my energy levels, but ensured that the routines I did were lighter than usual … I’ve noticed my body change but through exercise, I feel it’s being strengthened.”
