Perhaps William and Kate. Its not unheard of. HM, The Queen has quite a few godchildren herself. As close as Pippa and Kate are, I'd be very surprised if she wasn't named as a godmother.

The Queens Godchildren
The Cambridges are already aunt and uncle, which in my eyes is a bigger deal than godparent. Pippa is close to her mother too, so should she ask Carole to be godmother as well? It'd all be quite redundant, imo.

Maybe if the couple didn't have a lot of friends, it'd make sense to use immediate family. But the couple seem to have many friends, a large social circle. I think it'll already be hard to pick from all the friend options they have.

I was thinking perhaps William.
It might be nice to have the future king as a godparent.

Just because Kate and William prefer to ask friends instead of family, it doesn't mean that Pippa and James feel the same.

I also expect that they might ask James' brother Spencer.

James didn't even ask Spencer to be his best man at his wedding last year. Instead he asked his best friend Justin Johannsen.

Wonderful news! Congrats to Pippa and James.

I actually can see Pippa having one of her siblings as a godparent.

Congrats to Pippa and James on the happy news. My personal theory is that one of the baby's names (either first or middle) will be Michael after both Pippa's father and James's younger brother who passed away in his 20s while climbing Mt. Everest. Maybe James called it as a first name, hence why Spencer used it as a middle name for his son?

Since they are not public figures, I suppose they won't announce the name. I guess we will only know through a family member or some friend.

She might casually announce it as she did with her pregnancy in the fitness column. For example, she might write about workout tips for new moms and say "one way I found to workout and still spend time with (insert name here) is ..."

We’ll definitely know the name. There was a lot of interest in Pippa’s pregnancy. The birth announcement trended worldwide on Twitter.

It almost seems like there is a baby production line going on here. Louis is born and Pippa is pregnant. Pippa delivers a son and Meghan is pregnant. I'll not be very surprised if when Meghan delivers, we'll hear Eugenie is expecting. Or Kate expecting her 4th.

The next young generation of royal babies and their buddies are quickly turning into a good sized posse. Let's hope that the boys eventually catch up to the girls.

And after Eugenie delivers we'll hear that Lady Gabriella Kingston is expecting.
