James Middleton, the younger brother of Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, has welcomed his first child with his wife Alizée Thevenet.
He was seen pushing a stroller while out on Tuesday with Thévenet, in photos obtained by the Daily Mail.
The couple, who sipped coffee during their walk in Notting Hill, have not yet shared the child’s name or gender.
James, 36, announced the couple were expecting their first child in July after sharing a photo of Thevenet kissing their dog with her growing baby bump on display.
“We couldn’t be more excited…well Mable might be ❤️,” he captioned his wife’s baby bump debut, referencing their pet.
“It was a very difficult start to the year after the loss of my beloved Ella, however, we will end the year with the most precious little addition to our growing family. ❤️”
James shared the sad news that his therapy dog of 15 years, Ella, died in January.
Taking to Instagram at the time, he paid tribute to his beloved dog.
“It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my dear Ella. For 15 years, Ella has been by my side, from my darkest days to my happiest. I will miss her terribly,” he wrote.
James previously revealed that his late dog played a big role in his meeting Thevenet in 2018.
James’ wife first met Ella at the South Kensington Club in Chelsea, London, when she walked up to the animal to say hello.
“Rather embarrassed, I went to apologize and bring Ella back,” James recalled the funny moment three years later in an interview with The Telegraph.
“I didn’t know it, but I had just met my future wife, all thanks to Ella. If I hadn’t trusted Ella, I wouldn’t have taken her to the South Kensington Club and she wouldn’t have been able to say hello to the woman who became my fiancée.
The couple got engaged the following year and married in 2021.
Their wedding was postponed during the pandemic, but the couple eventually managed to secure a day of celebration in the south of France with family and close friends.
As for his siblings, Prince William’s wife Kate, 41, was the first of Middleton’s three children to become a parent.
The Princess of Wales gave birth to Prince George in 2013, Princess Charlotte in 2015 and finally Prince Louis in 2018.
