"I hope to see more of my family than I could last year, including, of course, my new grandchild," Carole said.
In December, rumors swirled that Pippa, 37, had a bun in the oven, but she has yet to confirm the news herself.
In April 2019, Pippa — who shares son Arthur with Matthews — gushed about motherhood and what she likes to do with her tot.
"Starting my son Arthur swimming at four months old has given him confidence and enjoyment in water," she said. "He's now six months old, and swimming is one of our favorite activities. The exercise helps guarantee sound daytime sleeps, and the movement has improved his digestion."
"Water activity is a great form of exercise you can do with your baby!" she added.
Meanwhile, Carole — who is a grandmother to Arthur, as well as Kate Middleton and Prince William's three kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis — revealed she's a "hands-on" grandma.
"I want to run down the hills, climb the trees and go through the tunnel at the playground," she exclaimed. "As long as I am able to, that’s what I’ll be doing. I cook with them, I muck around dancing, we go on bike rides.”
The businesswoman was not able to celebrate the holidays with her grandkids this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but she came up with another plan instead.
“We may not be able to get together but after a year like 2020, we need to remember what’s really important this Christmas,” she wrote via Instagram in November 2020. “For me, what really matters is that my family feels connected. I normally let my grandchildren help me decorate the tree. This year, I’ll ask them by video call to decide which decoration should go where.”
"It may need to be tastefully rearranged later!” she quipped.
