“Sport and exercise has always formed part of my daily life, from gym sessions to weekend runs, ambles or training for an event,” she wrote.

“Fitness gives me energy and helps clear my mind. I love the endorphins and the buzz factor that exercise gives.

“When I learned the happy news that I was pregnant I realised I needed to adjust my normal 4 to 5-day-a-week routine and find a way of continuing my exercise safely throughout the three trimesters.”

Pippa, who became a household name after serving as Kate’s bridesmaid during the Royal Wedding in 2011, married hedge fund manager James last year.

He’s the elder brother of Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews.

Spencer has just welcomed a child himself, after wife Vogue Williams gave birth to their son, Theodore.

Spencer has always declined to speak about his brother and Pippa’s pregnancy in public, pointing out they are a very private couple.

However, he did tell Hello! Magazine recently he is pleased his son will grow up with a cousin around the same age.

“They’ll be fantastic parents and we’ll all be very close,” he said. “It’s nice our children will be of a similar age and we hope they’ll be close as they grow up.”
