Congratulations are in order, as Kate Middleton has just become an aunt to her brother's first child!
James Middleton announced his son on the weekend, "No matter how prepared I thought I was, I was not prepared for the overwhelming emotion of meeting Inigo for the first time and the love for my darling Alizée as we became three."
His wife Alizee Thevenet gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Inigo Middleton. He is first cousins with the future King of England, Kate Middleton's son, Prince George.

James is following in the royal family's footsteps of hiding the baby's face, just like Prince Harry did with Archie.
Middleton explained, "We have settled into our new life as parents and I’ve told him all about Ella and that if it wasn’t for her he wouldn’t be here today and that we miss her greatly."
Ella was James' adorable black dog who sadly passed away in January 2023 from a "very short illness."
It was Ella who introduced the now-happy couple in 2018! After fate – or a dog – brought them together, the pair have been enjoying life together in the countryside.
In 2019, the couple got engaged and finally said "I do" in September 2021 after the COVID-19 pandemic derailed their original plans. However, the stunning ceremony located in the south of France was the perfect intimate celebration.
"e has been in our lives for just a few weeks but they have been the most special of my life getting to know our beautiful baby boy."
The new dad previously announced the happy news with a photo of his wife wearing a stunning olive-green dress which showed her baby bump and their dog Mable looking very excited.
"We couldn't be more excited … well Mable might be ❤️," he wrote.
Continuing on, "It was a very difficult start to the year after losing my beloved Ella however we will end the year with the most precious little addition to our growing family."
