She has since opened up about her pregnancy on her blog, saying that she is “over the moon” to let everyone know their happy news.
“It’s such a relief to share it with everyone. The first three months feels so long when you’re trying to hide it. You feel so different and you think everyone knows straight away when obviously they don’t, you’re just conscious of it.”
The popular star is due in May and revealed that she is starting to show much earlier than she did with her first child.
“When I got pregnant with Ollie, I don’t think I started to show until maybe 4 months. On your second though it’s so different. Your body literally snaps back into pregnancy mode and your bump shows so much earlier.
“Also, I just knew I was pregnant pretty much straight away. With Ollie, I hadn’t a clue but this time my instinct told me right away that I was. It’s so strange how you can just have a feeling.”
Pippa previously opened up about how motherhood had changed her personality, admitting she “grew up overnight”.
“You’re not selfish anymore whereas before you only had to worry about yourself and what you were wearing the following weekend. You didn’t have to consider other people – obviously you do with your family but if you wanted to go on holidays you could just do it but now your number one priority is your child,” she said.
“It changes everything and makes you look at everything differently. You worry about everything, you worry about him going in a car with someone else. Anything, everything becomes a worry.”
